One of President Donald Trump's attorneys, Jay Sekulow, wrote the 49 questions the president's team "believed the president would be asked" by Russia special counsel Robert Mueller, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.

The Post sourced its report on "three of the four people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk publicly."

Sekulow's questions were based on "more specific information" provided by Mueller's team "about the subjects that prosecutors wished to discuss with the president."

That information from the special counsel resulted from a "testy" March 5 meeting between Trump's team and Mueller's investigators.

"With those details in hand," the Post reported, Sekulow "compiled a list of 49 questions that the team believed the president would be asked."

The New York Times reported Monday it had obtained 49 questions on subjects relating to Russia and possible obstruction of justice that Mueller's prosecutors wanted to ask the president.

Mueller also raised the possibility of subpoenaing President Trump to appear before a grand jury in the meeting, the Post reported.
