David Drucker on Mueller’s Questions to Trump: The Leak Would Come from a Trump World
DRUCKER: “I think Mueller is clearly trying to figure out what sort of meddling Russia might have been engaged in and at what level, Trump or any of his subordinates in the campaign might have been working with them to try and defeat Hillary Clinton? There’s a very interesting piece of reporting in ‘The new York Times’ story which laid out this list, which is that Mueller’s team gave Trump’s legal team a list of questions that he wanted to ask the President. That legal team did not leak the questions to ‘The New York Times,’ but by getting to Trump’s legal team it would strike me that with Trump’s wider orbit of supporters and people he talks to, it’s very likely or at least it would make a lot of sense that the leak would come from Trump world. The reason is, Trump stands the most to benefit from a leak because you can then try to attack the Mueller team for double-dealing and not trying to run on aboveboard investigation and it allows the President then to get out a narrative that they’re on a fishing expedition, not on a very strong investigative posture."
