Mueller set to confront White House lawyers in pivotal meeting ‘as soon as next week’
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is set to meet with President Donald Trump’s lawyers next week as the probe into possible Russian collusion continues.
According to CNN, sources think that the meeting is more significant than past meetings “because it comes after the completion of interviews of White House personnel requested by the special counsel and after all requested documents have been turned over.”
There is still more information that Mueller’s investigators could request from Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. Thus far, CNN reported, Mueller has not requested to interview either of the men.
Sources told CNN that Trump’s attorneys hope that this meeting means Mueller’s investigation is nearing the end, or, at the very least, they’re ready to say that they’re finished focusing on Trump or Pence.
CNN reporter Evan Perez said that the meeting will happen as soon as next week.
