Trump says he has finished answers to special counsel’s questions

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump said he had answered the questions himself.

“My lawyers don’t write answers. I write answers. I was asked a series of questions. I’ve answered them very easily,” he said.

Tensions have risen even higher over the probe since Trump last week ousted Jeff Sessions as attorney general and named Matthew Whitaker as his replacement on an acting basis. That move gave Whitaker, a Trump loyalist, oversight over the Mueller probe rather than Rod Rosenstein, the department’s No. 2 official who previously had authority over it.

Mueller, who took over the investigation in May 2017, is investigating whether members of Trump’s campaign conspired with Russia in the 2016 election and whether Trump has unlawfully sought to obstruct the probe, which has cast a cloud over his presidency. Mueller already has brought charges against a series of former Trump aides.

Trump has called the probe a “witch hunt” and said there was no such collusion. Russia has also denied any interference.
