In his newest letter to President Donald Trump's legal team, Special Counsel Robert Mueller is now offering that Trump submit written answers on questions of his campaign's possible conspiring with Russian Federation to interfere with the 2016 election, according to a Tuesday New York Times report.

Giuliani, who like the president has repeatedly described the Russian Federation probe as a "witch hunt", told journalist Jeffrey Toobin that Trump's original legal team had struck a deal with Mueller about his expected final report that would allow the White House to "object to the public disclosure of information that might be covered by executive privilege".

But the sources also said the letter's tone and lack of an explicit demand for written responses on obstruction had some Trump allies giddy because they reasoned the scope of a possible interview will now be far more limited than initially expected.

Trump then suggested that the special counsel personally dislikes him, and claimed Mueller's team of prosecutors had a partisan vendetta against him.

A spokesman for Mueller's office declined to comment.

As the Post notes, "Mueller's decision to accept at least some written responses represents a concession to Trump's legal team, which since December has resisted the special counsel's efforts to interview the president".

It's not clear how Trump got the photos or what he does with them.

In the book, Woodward describes a mock interview Trump did with his legal team, in which they hoped to prove to the President that he shouldn't sit down with Mueller's team for an interview. You know, he's Comey's best friend, ' Trump said. After weeks of back-and-forth, Mueller warned Trump's legal team in a tense March meeting that he could subpoena Trump if he refused to grant an interview voluntarily.

The most important discrepancy relates to a meeting he had with Comey.
