Rudy Giuliani: Donald Trump won't answer any follow-up questions for Mueller probe

The report cites unnamed former law enforcement officials and others familiar with the investigation.

It was a tense time.

When the special counsel was announced on May 17, 2017, Robert Mueller took over the FBI's investigation, wrapping it into his larger pursuit of Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 election.

The White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded to a damaging report from the New York Times with a scathing statement released Friday.

"James Comey was sacked because he's a disgraced partisan hack", Sanders continued, "and his Deputy Andrew McCabe, who was in charge at the time, is a known liar fired by the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

Ghosn Is Indicted for a Second Time as Japan Prosecutors Build Case
Visits and questioning of the once high-flying industry titan were postponed after Ghosn developed a fever on Wednesday evening. The charges add to an earlier charge of under-reporting his income by around half over the five years through March 2015.

In addition to determining whether or not the President was working for Russian Federation, the FBI also opened a criminal investigation to determine if the President's firing of Comey was obstruction of justice.

The entire investigation was taken over several days later when special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed to investigate Russia's attempts to influence the 2016 election as well as possible ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

For one, also this week, the USA attorney for the Southern District here in NY indicted Natalia V. Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who met Manafort, Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner in Trump Tower in June 2016 to discuss acquiring dirt on Hillary Clinton.

The FBI opened counterintelligence files on four separate Trump associates in late July 2016, Comey told Congress. Trump himself was not under investigation, though the Times reports the senior FBI official grew concerned the former real estate magnate was working on behalf of Russian Federation following some of his Russia-friendly comments during the campaign.

The Times reported that FBI investigators looked into whether Trump's actions could be considered a threat to national security. The Times said it was unclear whether Mueller was still pursuing it.

Trump is facing criminal investigations in Washington and NY.

However, Giuliani told Reuters at the time, he would not answer questions on whether he tried to obstruct the investigation once he won office, such as by firing former FBI Director James Comey.

Neal Katyal, the former acting solicitor general under President Obama, wrote that any Trump attempts to hide parts of the report from the public would be defeated in court.

The newspaper said it's not clear whether Mueller is still looking into that matter.

US senators earlier this week introduced a bipartisan bill that would protect Mueller's job.
