Meanwhile, The New York Times reports that special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating how top Trump officials worked to put forward a false version of events surrounding a meeting at Trump Tower in the summer of 2016 between Russians and senior campaign officials. According to the Times, a former spokesperson for Trump’s legal team, Mark Corallo, is planning to tell Mueller about a conference call when White House communications director Hope Hicks said that emails about the meeting “will never get out.” The statement could be viewed as contemplating obstruction of justice.
