Trump says he 'easily' answered Russian Federation probe questions

The US leader told reporters he had personally answered the questions "very easily", but that they had yet to be submitted to Robert Mueller's team.

The president's comments, which he made to reporters gathered in the Oval Office for a bill signing, came after his lawyers surprisingly postponed submitting the answers as they had planned to on Thursday.

It is not clear if these questions were the ones that Trump answered.

Trump ended months of speculation on whether he would respond to questions from the special counsel, who is investigating whether the president's 2016 election campaign colluded with Russians and if Trump illegally obstructed the probe.

"I was asked a series of questions". He said then that the legal team was still unwilling to answer any questions concerning obstruction of justice by the president.

"I'm sure they're tricked-up because, you know, they like to catch people", Mr Trump said, referring to questions that he suggested could be created to result in perjury charges.

Rudolph Giuliani, the president's lawyer, told The Washington Post that the legal team was still deciding whether some of Mueller's questions they agreed to answer in September would cause legal problems for the president.

Premier League confirms VAR system technology to be introduced from 2019/20 season

"You have to be careful with people who have bad intentions". Very easily. I'm sure they are tricked up because you know they like to catch people.

On Thursday, he took to Twitter to describe Mr Mueller as "conflicted", called the investigation "absolutely nuts", adding that those involved in the long-running probe "are a disgrace to our nation".

The president did not say when he would turn over the answers to Mueller.

The president continued to maintain his innocence while launching a fresh round of attacks on the probe, saying "there should have never been any Mueller investigation" while claiming it was a waste of millions of dollars.

He said the answers related only to whether Trump colluded with Russian Federation during his presidential campaign.

Whitaker replaced Jeff Sessions, who had incurred Trump's wrath after recusing himself of oversight of Mueller, allowing, in Trump's view, the investigators to probe too far.

Mueller already has brought charges against a series of former Trump aides.
