President Donald Trump told reporters on Friday that he has finished his written answers for special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation and that he answered them “very easily”, according to Reuters.
> “My lawyers don’t write answers. I write answers. I was asked a series of questions. I’ve answered them very easily,” Trump said.
> The Republican president did not specify when his legal team would give Mueller his written responses, but a person familiar with the matter told Reuters they likely would be submitted next week. Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, declined to comment.
> “I’m sure they’re tricked-up because, you know, they like to catch people,” Trump said, referring to questions that he suggested could be designed to result in perjury charges. “You have to always be careful when you answer, with people that probably have bad intentions. Now, the questions were very routinely answered by me.”
The president again referred to the investigation as a “witch hunt” on Friday and denied any collusion with Russia.
> “There should have never been a so-called investigation, which, in theory, it’s not an investigation of me. But ... as far as I’m concerned, I like to take everything personally because you do better that way,” Trump added.
