With Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation progressing at full speed, those within the Trump administration are starting to feel the heat and pressure that is mounting. With an array of controversial issues now facing the administration, officials close to Trump are doing whatever possible to limit the scope of an oncoming interview between Trump and Mueller, understanding the potential damage which may come from a slip-up on the part of the president. As a result, the president’s lawyers are now providing a great deal of documents to the special counsel, in an attempt to mitigate the vulnerability of the interview, as recent reports depict a handing over of various memos and emails to limit the talks between Trump and Mueller.

According to a recent article from The Washington Post:

‘Trump’s legal team recently shared the documents in an effort to limit any session between the president and special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to a few select topics, the people said. The lawyers are worried that Trump, who has a penchant for making erroneous claims, would be vulnerable in an hours-long interview.

‘The decision to share materials with Mueller’s team is part of an effort by Trump’s lawyers to minimize his exposure to the special counsel, whom the president recently attacked in a series of tweets.’

President Trump has done anything but remain quiet against the special counsel since he began his investigation into the campaign’s potential collusion with the Kremlin government, and has been found tweeting criticisms against the inquiry on numerous accounts. Most recently, he again referred to the investigation as a “Witch Hunt” in his infamous Twitter rants, attacking the special counsel and the ongoing inquiry as being irrelevant and unjustified, despite the array of evidence and information that has been discovered.

Trump has consistently gone after Democrats for being the proponents of the investigation, claiming that there was no collusion or corruption between his campaign and the Russians.

Nevertheless, as Mueller has asked to interview the president for some time now, and with the administration understanding that it is only a matter of time until Trump is required to go in front of Mueller, they are doing everything in their power to ensure that Trump does not mistakenly incriminate his campaign during the likely hours long interview.

Trump has reportedly claimed that he is eager to sit down with Mueller for the interview, whereas his lawyers understand the damage that can be done if the president provides erroneous information during the meeting. As a result, the documents have been provided to the special counsel to try and divert the questions or topics that would lead to the president’s mishaps to emerge, and an attempt to limit the scope of the interview.

The reports regarding the documents that have been sent claim to include information surrounding topics that the special counsel has been investigating, including White House communications and memos that pertain to the firings of former FBI director James Comey, as well as former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
