Is Robert Mueller ever going to release his conflicts of interest with respect to President Trump, including the fact that we had a very nasty & contentious business relationship, I turned him down to head the Federal Bureau of Investigation (one day before appointment as S.C.) & Comey is his close friend.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is reviewing President Trump's tweets as he pursues an investigation into whether the president obstructed justice, The New York Times reported Thursday.

Politico did not say who snapped the photo, but noted that it was taken at gate 35X.

Donald Trump Jr. seated near the window on a flight to Westchester, N.Y., July 27, 2018.

Comey is now a chief witness in the special counsel's case.

In his statements on Twitter and elsewhere, Trump has not been shy about his disdain for Comey, whom he fired and has clashed with publicly for more than a year, and disappointment with Sessions, whose recusal from campaign-related matters paved the way for Mueller's eventual appointment by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Trump's team have denied any wrongdoing.

However, Carr added: "If it's accurate that the other person in the photo was Donald Trump Jr., Mr. Mueller was not aware of him and had no interaction with him".

Trump Jr. initially claimed that the meeting was brief and had to do with adoption, but emails later revealed that he was promised dirt on Hillary Clinton. Trump Jr. could face charges of lying to Congress if Cohen's allegation is proven true, as he testified under oath that his father didn't know about the meeting.

Shortly after firing Comey in May 2017, Trump alluded to the Russian Federation investigation as a factor in his decision.

While none of these tweets alone are believed to amount to obstruction of justice, they're thought to be a part of Mueller's plan to build a case that Trump was on a broad mission to interfere with the investigation.

Giuliani said the revelation of those tapes was "a very good development for us" and showed Trump did nothing wrong.
