ABC News reported that the President’s lawyer, Jay Sekulow released the following statement:
“The President today answered written questions submitted by The Special Counsel’s Office. The questions presented dealt with issues regarding the Russia-related topics of the inquiry. The President responded in writing,”
According to Fox News, Trump attorney, Rudy Giuliani added, “It has been our position from the outset that much of what has been asked raised serious constitutional issues and was beyond the scope of a legitimate inquiry. This remains our position today. The President has nonetheless provided unprecedented cooperation. The Special Counsel has been provided with more than 30 witnesses, 1.4 million pages of material, and now the President’s written responses to questions. It is time to bring this inquiry to a conclusion.”
Before leaving Washington D.C. for Mar-a-Lago in Florida for Thanksgiving, President Trump told reporters, “They’re all finished…. The lawyers have them. The written answers to the witch hunt that’s been going on forever. No collusion, no nothing. They’ve been finished. Finished them yesterday. The lawyers have them. I assume they’ll turn them in today or soon.”
Last week, Giuliani told the Washington Post that some of Mueller’s questions for the president appeared to be “possible traps” and “irrelevant.”
“There are some that create more issues for us legally than others,” Giuliani said, calling some of the questions “unnecessary,” and “possible traps.” “We might consider some as irrelevant,” he said.
