Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein Interviewed In Russian Election Interference Probe

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has asked the White House to provide a wide variety of documents related to his investigation into Russia's attempted meddling in the 2016 election, Fox News has confirmed.

"As the Deputy Attorney General has said numerous times, if there comes a time when he needs to recuse, he will", the Justice Department said in a statement Tuesday night.

Rosenstein discussed with Trump his concerns about Comey in May, and promptly wrote a memo outlining the reasons for Comey's firing at Trump's direction, as has been previously reported. That document is now in Mueller's possession.

Zeidenberg suggested that Rosenstein's testimony to Mueller's investigators "either isn't that critical or there are other people that could say the same thing".

One of the subjects under scrutiny is the Oval Office meeting Trump attended in May with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, and the country's ambassador to the US, Sergey Kislyak, the day after Comey was canned.

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director has asked the Trump administration for documents about 13 different areas where he wants information, the New York Times reported Wednesday. The New York Times reported that in the meeting Trump had said that firing Comey relieved "great pressure" on him.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters last month that "the president weighed in" on the Trump Tower meeting "as any father would based on the limited information he had". That meeting was set up by Donald Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, to get derogatory information from Russians about Hillary Clinton.

The request was expected, a source said.

The document requests are the most specific so far about the investigation and show that Mueller is focusing on what Trump has done while he's been president.
