Special counsel Robert Mueller has told President Trump’s legal team that Trump is still being investigated as part of the federal Russia probe, but he is not currently being considered as a criminal target, according to a report.
Mueller advised Trump’s lawyers, however, he is drafting a report detailing the president’s conduct since his inauguration and whether he has potentially obstructed justice, per the Washington Post.
The latest report on the special counsel’s inquiry comes as Mueller’s investigators continue to negotiate with Trump’s attorneys about the possibility of a sit-down interview with the president.
While some of Trump’s legal team celebrated the news, others were concerned that Mueller might be trying to trap the president into agreeing to an interview by lulling him into a false sense of security where he could incriminate himself under oath, the newspaper reported.
