Trump tells Mueller he was unaware of Trump Tower meeting: Report

November 28, 2018

President Trump told special counsel Robert Mueller in written responses that he was not told about a 2016 Trump Tower meeting between a Russian lawyer and members of his campaign, according to a report Wednesday.

The president also said adviser Roger Stone did not speak with him about Wikileaks, CNN reported.

Mr. Mueller has shifted his focus to Mr. Stone and his associate, Jerome Corsi, in recent weeks. He is allegedly investigating whether they were in contact with WikiLeaks before or published a stash of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

The president’s responses were to the best of his recollection, a common legal tactic used during proceedings, CNN reported.

Mr. Trump’s answers were submitted last week.
