Mueller casts broad net in requesting extensive records from Trump White House

Robert Mueller is believed to want to see documents that relate to 13 "areas of interest", including those relating to Mr Trump's sacking of the Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey and his son's meeting with a Russian lawyer, according to United States reports.
The fact that Mueller's team would speak with Rosenstein is not surprising given his direct involvement in Trump administration conversations that preceded the May 9 ouster and the evolving White House explanations of it. The Post quickly followed with a more detailed breakdown of the 13 categories of Mueller's inquiry.
According to the Times, Mr Mueller has also asked for information regarding how the White House responded to questions from the newspaper about a meeting Mr Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, had with a Kremlin-connected attorney previous year.
"So what happened with respect to that meeting is critically important, as well as what happened with respect to firing James Comey, the FBI Director".
Today's bombshell comes via the New York Times: Special counsel Robert Mueller is looking at President Trump's actions while President, including interactions with Russian agents.
Mr Mueller has also requested documents about the circumstances of the firing of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, the Times said. Check out this story on USATODAY.com: https://usat.ly/2xeWGXT WASHINGTON - The Senate Judiciary Committee announced Tuesday it will consider two bills to protect special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired as he investigates possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation in last year's election.
Mr Trump's eldest son was led to believe the meeting would yield damaging information about his father's Democratic presidential opponent Hillary Clinton. But the obstruction of justice and the lying ultimately may be what puts an end to this White House.
So with both the Russian Federation angle and the Comey/obstruction angle, it's easy to understand why Mueller is very interested in learning everything he can about this meeting.
Ty Cobb, Trump's lead lawyer handling the Russian Federation probe, has said he will turn over many of documents this week.
Specifically, Mueller appears to be closely going through White House documents about most of the key events related to potential collusion and potential obstruction of justice, with a close focus on just what President Trump's role was. It is not clear whether Mueller has made separate document requests elsewhere to examine those subjects.
The Timesreported that special counsel Robert Mueller's office had sent the White House a document outlining 13 areas of interest about which investigators were seeking additional documentation. So Mueller's team seems to want to know if Trump himself was trying to cover anything up in micromanaging his son's disclosures about the meeting. Yates has said that before her firing, she had raised concerns with McGahn that Flynn was misleading White House officials on his contact with foreign figures.
