Trump's lawyers preparing answers to Mueller's questions

Source: CNN

President Donald Trump's legal team is preparing answers to written questions provided by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to sources familiar with the matter.

The move represents a major development after months of negotiations and signals that the Mueller investigation could be entering a final phase with regard to the President.

The questions are focused on matters related to the investigation of possible collusion between Trump associates and Russians seeking to meddle in the 2016 election, the sources said. Trump's lawyers are preparing written responses, in part relying on documents previously provided to the special counsel, the sources said.

"We are in continuing discussions with the special counsel and we do not comment on those discussions," said Trump attorney Jay Sekulow.

1. That whole process is a f-ing joke. Someone else is doing Trump's homework for him.

They aren't even HIS answers.

2. So Trump cannot even be trusted to write the answers?

I completely understand why Trump's attorneys will not allow him to do it himself, but it is pretty amusing that they know Trump would go off on tangents, forget the initial questions, and then possibly give contradictory answers throughout.

3. Will written answers be as much lies as his verbal answers would be? Rhetorical question.

Will written answers be as much lies as his verbal answers would be?

10. Also, Mueller can still question Trump.

And if he doesn't know those answers verbatim he's gonna perjure himself.
