President Trump Calls California Rep. "Little Adam Schitt" in Tweet

Attorneys for Donald Trump have submitted the president's answers in writing to questions posed by special counsel Robert Mueller, multiple news outlets reported on Tuesday.

Trump told Fox News Sunday's Chris Wallace in a recent interview that the written questions were "very simple", but changed course on his previous openness to sit for an in-person interview with Mueller or his investigators. "I can't say definitively there are no other questions we would answer, but it is unlikely we will answer any more questions".

The president's legal team doesn't expect to answer any additional questions from Mueller beyond a few follow-ups, though they have no assurances from Mueller that he won't pursue further queries, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said.

A source tells Axios' Jonathan Swan that President Donald Trump has shown "no great urgency" in nominating a replacement for former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and is very pleased with Whitaker's supposed "courage" in defending him.

The report, which quotes unnamed sources, states that Mr Trump's request was rebuffed by then White House Counsel Donald McGahn, who advised him to hold off in order to avoid opening himself up to accusations of abuse of power. 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.

Mueller agreed to accept Trump's answers in writing - although the prosecutor could still seek Trump's testimony in person - after nearly a year of negotiations with Trump's attorneys.

Trump has denied any collusion with Moscow and has called the Mueller investigation a "witch hunt".
