Special Counsel Robert Mueller continues his investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. It was reported on Thursday that Mueller is now seeking the phone records from Air Force One.
Mueller’s reason for collecting the Air Force one phone records was because the records were involved with a statement that the president helped write for his son, Don Jr.
Politico reported on Thursday:
“Special counsel Robert Mueller has sought phone records concerning the statement written aboard Air Force One defending a meeting between Trump campaign officials and Russians at Trump Tower last year that was set up by Donald Trump Jr., according to two people familiar with the investigation.”
“Mueller has also asked the White House for documents and emails connected to a May 3 press briefing where Sean Spicer said the president had confidence in James Comey as FBI director, these people said. The request seeks to determine what White House officials, particularly Spicer, knew about the president’s plans to fire Comey in the days before it happened, according to one of the people familiar with it.”
“The requests, first reported by the New York Times, are the latest indication that Mueller’s probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 election is expanding to include what has happened in the White House since Trump took office, including questions of obstruction of justice.”
Trump has constantly denied that there was collusion between his campaign and Russia, but new evidence continues to be exposed and Trump continues to grow more worried.
