Trump submits written responses to Mueller’s questions, says lawyer

It is time to bring this inquiry to a conclusion, Rudy Giuliani pointed out

WASHINGTON, November 21. /TASS/. US President Donald Trump's written responses have been submitted to Special Counsel Robert Mueller who supervises the investigation over Russia’s alleged interfering in the US elections in 2016, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said on Tuesday.

"Much of what has been asked raised serious constitutional issues and was beyond the scope of a legitimate inquiry," Giuliani said in a statement, adding that President provided "unprecedented cooperation [with Robert Mueller]".

"The special counsel has been provided with more than 30 witnesses, 1.4 million pages of material, and now the president’s written responses to questions. It is time to bring this inquiry to a conclusion," he said.

Another lawyer of Donald Trump, Jay Sekulow, made a statement as well. "The President today (on Tuesday - TASS) answered written questions submitted by The Special Counsel’s Office. The questions presented dealt with issues regarding the Russia-related topics of the inquiry. The President responded in writing," the statement said.

The US special services accuse Russia of meddling in the US election process in 2016. Special Counsel Robert Mueller heads the investigation of alleged attempts of meddling, bringing charges against several Russian citizens, as well as against five Americans and one Dutch national.

Trump and members of his team have repeatedly rejected all accusations concerning any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Moscow has also been refuting those allegations.
