Giuliani says Trump's answers to several dozen Mueller questions are ready

It looks like Special Counsel Robert Mueller may soon get the answers he's been seeking from President Trump.

Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani told Bloomberg on Monday that written responses to several dozen of Mueller's questions have now been prepared, although these answers only have to do with collusion with Russian meddling in the election; Giuliani has said Trump won't answer questions about obstruction of justice, the other prong of Mueller's investigation into whether the Trump campaign was involved in Russian interference in the 2016 election. Giuliani also told Bloomberg that these answers would be submitted to Mueller after the midterm elections, but only if the two parties agree to terms by then.

After the midterms, "we will be in serious discussions with them again," Giuliani said, adding that he thinks the matter will be resolved by the end of November and that Mueller's team wants to "get it wrapped up one way or another." Fox News, meanwhile, reports that members of Trump's legal team believe the Mueller investigation is "winding down." Giuliani, however, also said that while the questions they've received are a "good sample," there could still be more coming.
