How the White House responded to the meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and Russia
Trump’s meeting with Russian officials
Internal White House communications involving seven former campaign advisers
"anything on Manafort"
Along with the requests, Muller is interested in speaking with the staffers who were aboard Air Force One when the response was created for Trump Jr. responses for his meeting with Russia. Additionally, Mueller and his team are interested in speaking with former and former White House staffers who may be considered witnesses.
What does Vice President Pence say? When asked if Muller is overstepping his boundary, He responded with, “that's for others to say.” Pence is making sure to keep his name away from the affair, saying: "I've made clear that during my time on the campaign, I was not aware of any contacts or any collusion with Russian officials."on CBS.
