Trump Asked Witnesses About Their Testimony

Special counsel Robert Mueller has learned of two conversations in recent months in which President Trump asked key witnesses about matters they discussed with investigators, the New York Times reports.

“The episodes demonstrate that even as the special counsel investigation appears to be intensifying, the president has ignored his lawyers’ advice to avoid doing anything publicly or privately that could create the appearance of interfering with it.”

“Legal experts said Mr. Trump’s contact with the men most likely did not rise to the level of witnesses tampering. But witnesses and lawyers who learned about the conversations viewed them as potentially a problem and shared them with Mr. Mueller.”
