An extended list of questions for President Trump from the special counsel’s office was leaked to the New York Times Monday; raising serious questions over a string of “deliberate disclosures” coming from the months-long Mueller probe.
The newspaper refused to comment on how reporters “obtained” the information, but published the “tantalizing” questions ahead of a possible meeting between Mueller and the President.
Trump slammed the leaks on social media within hours, calling the possible disclosure from the special counsel’s office “disgraceful.”
“So disgraceful that the questions concerning the Russian Witch Hunt were ‘leaked’ to the media. No questions on Collusion. Oh, I see…you have a made up, phony crime, Collusion, that never existed, and an investigation begun with illegally leaked classified information. Nice!” he tweeted.

The President’s comments come just days after the special counsel’s office met with Rudy Giuliani to discuss a possible end to the year-long investigation, with the former presidential candidate vowing to “wrap up” the probe “within weeks.”
MUELLER MAYHEM: Senate Panel APPROVES Legislation to ‘Protect Mueller’
The Senate Judiciary Committee led by Sen. Chuck Grassley voted Thursday to approve legislation that would protect special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired by the President.
According to the Hill, the panel approved the decision in a 14-7 vote that split Republican members down the middle. In all, four GOP senators supported the legislation, including Sens. Tillis, Graham, Grassley, and Flake.
The bill was opposed by Sens. Hatch, Lee, Cornyn, Crapo, Sasse, Kennedy, and Cruz.
“The vote marks the first time Congress has advanced legislation to formally protect Mueller from being fired by President Trump, who has railed against him in public and reportedly talked in private of dismissing him,” writes the Hill.
The proposal now rests in the hands of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who will decide if and when the legislation receives a full vote on the Senate floor.
“I’m the one who decides what we take to the floor, that’s my responsibility as the majority leader, and we will not be having this on the floor of the Senate,” McConnell said earlier this month.
MUELLER MADNESS: Mueller Probes Ukrainian Who Gave CLINTONS $13 Million
Mueller probes foreign national who gave Trump $150,000, CLINTONS $13 Million
Special counsel Robert Mueller is currently investigating a Ukrainian national who donated $150,000 to President Trump’s charity in 2015; totally ignoring the fact the same individual gave over $13 million to the Clinton Foundation since 2006.
According to the Daily Caller, Mueller is probing Victor Pinchuk’s relationship to the President and his campaign. The Ukrainian billionaire has also donated millions of dollars to Bill and Hillary’s foundation over the previous decade.
“Mueller began investigating the Pinchuk donation after receiving documents in response to a subpoena issued to the Trump Organization — the real estate company Trump ran before entering politics,” writes the DC.
The revelation comes just hours after the FBI raided the offices of President Trump’s personal lawyer; claiming the search and seizure relates to possible payments between the attorney and former adult actress Stormy Daniels.
“Attorney–client privilege is dead!” said the President on social media.
