WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says it’s “disgraceful” that a list of questions the special counsel investigating Russian election interference wants to ask him have become public.
The New York Times late Monday published the nearly four dozen questions to Trump’s lawyers. The questions range from Trump’s motivations for firing FBI Director James Comey last May to contacts Trump campaign officials had with Russians.
Trump tweeted Tuesday that it is “so disgraceful that the questions concerning the Russian Witch Hunt were ‘leaked’ to the media. No questions on Collusion. Oh, I see…you have a made up, phony crime, Collusion, that never existed, and an investigation begun with illegally leaked classified information. Nice!”
Trump says the investigation is a “witch hunt” and insists his campaign did not collude with Russia.
