  • President Donald Trump said he would deliver his
    written answers to special counsel Robert Mueller next
    week.
  • “They’re all done,” Trump told reporters outside the
    White House Saturday morning. 
  • Trump did not describe the contents of his answers, but
    the administration has previously said he wouldn’t answer
    questions on possible obstruction of justice. 

President Donald Trump said Saturday he would deliver his written
answers to special counsel Robert Mueller next week.

They’re all done,” Trump told
reporters outside the White House in the latest development for
Trump’s participation in Mueller’s probe after he said Friday
that he had answered the questions “very easily.”

The content of Mueller’s questions was not immediately clear, but
the administration has previously said Trump would not answer any
questions relating to obstruction of justice. Trump also told reporters Saturday that a
sit-down interview with investigators hadn’t been discussed.

However, many have characterized Trump’s submission of
written answers as a major step in Mueller’s
investigation into possibles ties between Trump’s campaign and
Russia. It is the first time Trump has directly participated in
the investigation.

Trump echoed his previous critique of the probe Friday, suggesting (without
evidence) that investigators might have “bad intentions” and
“like to catch people.” 

The probe, which Trump has referred to as a “witch hunt,”
has charged four Americans once
affiliated with Trump’s campaign or administration, 13 Russian
nationals, 12 Russian intelligence officers, three Russian
companies, and two other people in its look at Russian
involvement in the 2016 US presidential campaign.
