President Donald Trump reportedly called Special Counsel Robert Mueller and asked Mueller who he was going to indict on Monday.
President Donald Trump, however, made clear at the beginning of the call that he was “only asking for a friend.”
A White House spokeswoman told The Halfway Post that the President asked “innocently and legally.”
“Mr. Trump knows the legal boundaries of the law, and so he made it very clear that he was not asking about himself,” the spokeswoman said. “The President respects the divide between the justice department and the Oval Office, and he was merely asking for a friend who was not in any way connected to the White House. His private friend wanted to know who was going to be indicted, while Trump was adamant that he wasn’t even curious himself, and didn’t care to know at all except that his friend had asked him to ask.”
Regardless of motive, however, Mr. Mueller hung up the phone on Mr. Trump.
