Is Robert Mueller Now Targeting Trump for Obstruction of Justice?

Attorney General Jeff Sessions speaks during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill Tuesday Nov. 14 2017 in Washington

Investigators working for special counsel Robert Mueller are scheduled to interview additional senior White House officials in the coming weeks, adding to their list of high-profile interviews and pushing the investigation closer to President Donald Trump and his family.

Specifically, investigators want emails related to former FBI Director James Comey's firing and Attorney General Jeff Sessions' recusal, according to a report by ABC News.

Mueller is trying to determine whether Trump or any other administration official wielded improper influence over an ongoing investigation.

Sessions told lawmakers in October that he intends to cooperate fully with Mueller, but critics say that his multiple testimonies before Congress about the Russian Federation investigation are full of contradictions and outright lies.

After Trump wrote an "angry, meandering" letter explaining his reasoning for firing the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, McGahn convinced the president not to publish it, according to The New York Times.

McGahn was also on hand during the president's decision making process ahead of the firing of James Comey.

Last week, Senate and House Democrats hammered Sessions for previously telling Congress - under oath - that no Trump campaign associates ever communicated with Russian operatives or intermediaries.

Flynn was sacked in February after then-Acting Attorney General Sally Yates informed White House officials that Flynn had lied to them about his own contacts with Russian officials.
