The New York Times got ahold of nearly fifty questions Special Counsel Robert Mueller wants to ask President Trump.

They relate to the President’s controversial firings, meetings between members of his campaign and Russians, and Trump’s business interests.

What do they reveal about the state of the investigation? What is Mueller trying to find out from President Trump based on the content of his questions? And how is the White House responding to the leak?

Guests:

Josh Gerstein, POLITICO reporter covering the White House

Laurie L. Levenson, former federal prosecutor and a professor of law at Loyola Law School

Jens David Ohlin, vice dean and law professor at Cornell University where he focuses on criminal and international law
