What involvement did you have concerning platform changes regarding arming Ukraine?

Special Counsel Mueller has been investigating allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation for almost a year. The report did find that leaks from the intelligence community after Trump's inauguration "damaged national security and potentially endangered lives". The inquiries provided some of the deepest insight yet into the direction of Mueller's investigation and showed how the special counsel is heavily focused on the question of whether Trump obstructed justice, as well as whether top aides such as former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort colluded with Russian officials during the campaign.

"No questions on Collusion", Trump tweet-crowed.

Mr Flynn was sacked on February 13, 2017, after White House officials said he had misled them about his Russian contacts during the transition period by saying he had not discussed sanctions.

Additional questions centre on Michael Flynn, Mr Trump's former national security adviser, who has pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his discussions on sanctions against Russia with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the presidential transition. One question suggests that former campaign chief Paul Manafort sought help from the Russians: "What knowledge did you have of any outreach by your campaign, including by Paul Manafort, to Russia about potential assistance to the campaign?"

Some questions relate to Russian Federation.

Mr. Mueller's investigators read the questions to Mr. Trump's lawyers, The Times said.

Most of the questions the Times printed focus on whether Trump may have obstructed justice or tried to frustrate the FBI's Russian Federation investigation, including whether he asked then-FBI Director James Comey to lay off then-national security adviser Mike Flynn, whether he leaned on others to pressure Comey, and why he fired Comey.

In a subsequent tweet, Trump claimed that "i$3 t would seem very hard to obstruct justice for a crime that never happened!"

What did you know about phone calls that Mr. Flynn made with the Russian ambassador, Sergey I. Kislyak, in late December 2016?

The Times reports that it obtained a list of the questions.

Yet another asks what Trump knew about email hacking by Russian Federation, its use of social media and other acts aimed at the campaign. Mr. Comey's notes say that Mr. Trump raised concerns about the Steele Dossier and said he needed loyalty from his F.B.I. director.

The queries also touch on President Trump's businesses and his discussions with his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, about a possible Moscow real estate deal.

The disclosure comes as Trump's lawyers are negotiating whether the president will sit down for an interview with the special counsel.

Mr Mueller was appointed as special counsel following Mr Trump's firing of Mr Comey last May.
