President Donald Trump told reporters on Friday that he has answered questions in writing that were submitted by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, but he hasn’t turned them over to Mueller’s team yet.
“My lawyers aren’t working on that. I’m working on that. I write the answers. My lawyers don’t write answers, I write the answers,” he said.
“I was asked a series of questions. I have answered them very easily. Very easily. I’m sure they’re tripped up because they like to catch people,” he continued. “You have to be careful answering questions with people that probably have bad intentions, but no. The questions were very routinely answered by me. By me. Okay?”
He also claimed he’s “not agitated” about the Russia probe, despite his Twitter outburst about the “witch hunt” on Thursday.
