'Man of mystery' cooperates with Mueller in Russia probe

Adviser to UAE crown prince reportedly cooperating in Mueller probe

Robert Mueller's team, which is now investigating the alleged Russian interference in the USA presidential election and trying to determine if the real estate mogul's campaign colluded with the Kremlin to affect the outcome of the 2016 vote, is apparently well-aware of at least two occasions where the commander-in-chief questioned witnesses who have testified before the special counsel about the probe.

In the days after the Times published its report, former White House staff secretary Rob Porter reportedly told McGahn that Trump wanted him to release a statement denying that Trump wanted Mueller to be fired and that McGahn threatened to resign over the order.

The experts told the Times that, still, the discussions could boost any obstruction case on Russian Federation that Mueller might build against President Trump. The President has not been questioned by Mueller; Trump's lawyers are negotiating terms of a possible interview.

The President said he had never ordered McGahn to fire the special counsel. The White House counsel has always walked a fine line in prioritizing the protection of the Oval Office over the person that occupies it.

Rob Weissman, president of the legal nonprofit Public Citizen, said the news didn't bode well for Kushner. When asked whether he would fire Mueller such an investigation , Trump was noncommittal.

Based on public reporting and conversations with people close to the matter, Mueller's obstruction case appears closer to concluding than his investigation into whether members of Trump's campaign colluded with Moscow to tilt the 2016 United States election in his favor.

The Times report referenced the obstruction investigation with regard to Trump's interactions with McGahn and Priebus. The President told McGahn that he did not remember the discussion that way. "They represent the president as president and so in that sense, [McGahn's] obligation is to the institution", Bauer explained. McGahn has stayed on as White House counsel, one of the few senior administration officials who has been with the President since the campaign.

Legal experts I spoke with suggest Trump's interactions with McGahn point to a broader and more troubling pattern. "Anything beyond what I've already given you, I would refer you to the President's outside counsel".

President Donald Trump leaves the President's Room of the Senate at the Capitol after he formally signed his cabinet nominations into law, in Washington, Jan. 20, 2017. "It's a symptom of a larger problem, it is not the problem itself".
