President Donald Trump's legal team submitted written responses Tuesday to some questions from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, rebuffing the prosecutor on queries examining whether the president sought to obstruct justice.
This round of questioning was limited to the general topic of whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian Federation.
When Mueller was appointed special counsel in May 2017, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said the probe would include "any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation" into possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation during the 2016 election.
"Clearly what he likes about him is he's holding his ground, not running for the tall grass", one White House source tells Swan.

Last August, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said he had discouraged Trump from testifying out of concern for a "perjury trap" Mueller might set.. "I can't say definitively there are no other questions we would answer, but it is unlikely we will answer any more questions". "The president responded in writing", Jay Sekulow, counsel to the president, said in a statement. The Trump lawyers hope Mueller will now begin to wrap up the portion of his investigation related to the president.
Mueller agreed to accept Trump's answers in writing - although the prosecutor could still seek Trump's testimony in person - after nearly a year of negotiations with Trump's attorneys.
"The written answers to the witch hunt that's been going on forever - no collusion, no nothing - they've been finished, finished 'em yesterday", Trump told reporters.
