“Special counsel Robert Mueller informed President Trump’s attorneys last month that he is continuing to investigate the president but does not consider him a criminal target at this point,” the Washington Post reports.
“In private negotiations in early March about a possible presidential interview, Mueller described Trump as a subject of his investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. Prosecutors view someone as a subject when that person has engaged in conduct that is under investigation but there is not sufficient evidence to bring charges.”
“The special counsel also told Trump’s lawyers that he is preparing a report about the president’s actions while in office and potential obstruction of justice.”
Also important: “Some Trump advisers fear the president is not in the clear and could be baited into an interview that could put him in legal jeopardy.”Save to Favorites
