Mueller Seeks to Question Trump About Flynn and Comey Departures

Carol D. Leonnig, Sari Horwitz and Josh Dawsey—The Washington Post:

Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is seeking to question President Trump in the coming weeks about his decisions to oust national security adviser Michael Flynn and FBI Director James B. Comey, according to two people familiar with his plans.

Mueller’s interest in the events that led Trump to push out Flynn and Comey indicates that his investigation is aggressively scrutinizing possible efforts by the president or others to hamper the special counsel’s probe.

Justice, obstructed. Given most other presidents, you’d be right to argue Mr. Trump is above this. Not with this guy. Trump’s got the insecurities of Nixon with none of that president’s political skill and policy knowledge.

Trump isn’t above anything, because he’ll stoop to anything that furthers his aims.
