WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team has questioned Sam Clovis, co-chairman of President Donald Trump’s election campaign, to determine if Trump or top aides knew of the extent of the campaign team’s contacts with Russia, two sources familiar with the investigation said on Friday. The focus of the questions put to Clovis by Mueller’s team has not been previously reported.

“The ultimate question Mueller is after is whether candidate Trump and then President-elect Trump knew of the discussions going on with Russia, and who approved or even directed them,” said one source. “That is still just a question.” ... Contacted late on Friday, the White House declined to comment.

One of the sources described Clovis as “another domino” after former campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI over his own contacts with Russians during the 2016 election campaign.

“The investigators now know what Papadopoulos was doing on the Russian front, which he initially tried to conceal, and who he told that to,” said the other source. “Now [they] want to know whether Clovis and others reported these activities and others related to Russia, and if so, to whom,” this source said.

1. The ultimate question for Trump: What did Trump know and when did he know it.

5. The idea that he was unaware is ridiculous

He may have used his family as arms-length surrogates, which is even worse than Nixon

Family members did this without Donald Trump's knowledge? With all those business dealings
he's had in Russia? He didn't know what was going on?

Impossible. Absolutely impossible.

Unless he's a brainwashed asset.

6. Trump knew, his underlings ran to him and bragged about all of it.

To curry favor.
