Mueller requests White House documents related to Trump conduct

"As the deputy attorney general has said numerous times, if there comes a time when he needs to recuse, he will".

Special prosecutor Robert Mueller is zeroing in on the actions that Trump has taken as president - including the infamous Oval Office meeting with White House officials where he reportedly said that firing former FBI Director Comey relieved "pressure" he felt from the Russian Federation investigation.

Trump met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on May 10 in the Oval Office - one day after the dismissal. Since then, administration lawyers have been scouring White House emails and asking officials whether they have other documents or notes that may pertain to Mr. Mueller's requests. One of which is a meeting with Russian officials in which Trump said firing Comey relieved "great pressure" on him.

"I just fired the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation".


The report said that both former national security adviser Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort are being investigated.

Comey was sacked in May, while he was leading the Russian Federation investigation.

But that narrative was muddled days later when Trump, in a television interview, said he would have fired Comey regardless of the Justice Department's recommendation. He officially resigned - reportedly at the request of the president - in February after his contacts with Russian Federation came to light.

The document requests are the clearest indication yet that at least some aspects of Mueller's probe are focused on the president's behavior in office.


"I faced great pressure because of Russian Federation".

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has made list and wants the White House to check it twice before he makes decisions on who's naughty and nice.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters last month that "the president weighed in" on the Trump Tower meeting "as any father would based on the limited information he had".
