Trump says he finished answering questions for Mueller investigation

While he repeatedly stated that his legal team has not been involved in helping him write his responses to Mueller, Trump expressed concern over investigators looking to catch him perjuring himself.

That Trump's admission about Whitaker to The Daily Caller and his tweetstorm came after this series of developments on the Russian Federation front could indicate that the president is growing increasingly anxious about what Mueller has.

The president continued to maintain his innocence while launching a fresh round of attacks on the probe, saying "there should have never been any Mueller investigation" while claiming it was a waste of millions of dollars.

The president said he hasn't submitted them because he's "been a bit busy".

"My lawyers aren't working on that". I'm working on it. I write answers. I was asked a series of questions. "I've answered them very easily, very easily", Trump told reporters gathered in the oval office.

Porter's cause of death is still undetermined, though it was reported that she had been suffering from pneumonia for weeks. The model and actress, who had three children with the music mogul, died at her home in Toluca Lake, Calif.

"As you know, I've been very busy", he quipped, bringing up last week's trip to Europe and several trade deals that were recently negotiated.

Rumors are reverberating that Mueller may be preparing more indictments and there has been widespread media coverage of two Trump allies - Roger Stone and Jerome Corsi - who say they expect to be charged. 'Gee, was the weather sunny or was it rainy? He said it might have been a good day, it was rainy, therefore he told a lie. And Mueller's office asked a federal court in Washington, DC, for an extension on the sentencing of Rick Gates, the former Trump campaign deputy chairman, until January - a sign that Gates still has a significant amount of information for prosecutors. Trump's lawyers have not yet agreed to answer a larger set of questions that relate to Trump's time as president-elect and then as president, Giuliani said.

"You always have to be careful when you answer questions from people who probably have bad intentions", he added.
