The AP is reporting that the Special Counsel’s office has interviewed Trump confidant Tom Barrack. When exactly this happened isn’t clear. One source says it was “months ago.” There aren’t many details about what Barrack was asked. The AP has three different sources and at least two gave slightly different descriptions of the questions. One said the questions focused on Manafort and Gates; another said investigators asked about them as well as asking broader questions about the financing of the 2016 campaign. Both of these make sense. There are critical unanswered questions about Barrack’s role – ones that have still gotten only the most cursory public airing.
