Special Counsel Robert Mueller is not satisfied with President Donald Trump’s submission of written answers for the investigation and still wants an in-person interview for follow-up questions, according to a Monday CNN report.

Trump’s lawyers shot down the special counsel’s most recent request. But, as a source told CNN, “Mueller is not satisfied.”

Recent developments, such as Michael Cohen’s agreement to testify before Congress, have reportedly lessened Trump’s appetite for a one-on-one meeting.
