Schiff: In Theory Mueller Could Be Interested in the Stormy Daniels Payment and Michael Cohen’s Involvement
BLITZER: "Potentially, if there was criminal, let’s say, could this potentially fall into the lap of the special counsel Robert Mueller? If you look back at the instructions he received when he took job. Any links between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Trump. And any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation and any other matters within the scope of their investigation. Could this fit into Robert Mueller’s investigation?
SCHIFF: "In theory, yes. As a practical matter, Bob Mueller will be far more interested in what was Michael Cohen’s involvement in trying to get a Russia Trump Tower going at the time of the campaign. And did President Trump deny anything in Russia. What was Michael Cohen’s travel in Europe. Is there any collaboration of what Christopher Steele made during the campaign. That’s going to be much more the core interests of Bob Mueller. As we have seen with other issues that have arisen but may not be central to the Russia story, those may be taken by other prosecutors. So there’s an investigation of the eastern district of New York looking at eb 5 Visa issues with the Kushner properties. I think Bob Mueller is like I to say these prosecutors should handle these."
