Mueller Confirms Trump Asked Staff to Falsify Records

By    |   Wednesday, 24 July 2019 12:09 PM

Former special counsel Robert Mueller confirmed to members of the House Judiciary Committee during his Wednesday testimony that President Donald Trump asked members of his staff to falsify records that were relevant to the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling.

During a line of questioning from Rep. Cedrick Richmond, D-La., Mueller acknowledged that he would say "that's generally a summary," when Richmond asked him if it was fair to say Trump "tried to protect himself by asking staff to falsify records relevant to an ongoing investigation," reports MSNBC.

"Would you say [with] that action, the president tried to hamper the investigation by asking staff to falsify records relevant to your investigation?" Richmond asked, to which Mueller replied that he'd have to refer to his report.

"Also, the President's attempt to get [White House Counsel Don] McGahn to create a false written record were related to President Trump's concerns about your obstruction of justice inquiry, correct?" said Richmond. 

"I believe that to be true," said Mueller.
