Special counsel Robert Mueller will reportedly accept some written answers from President Donald Trump in the Russian Federation probe.

Mueller's offer to accept written responses from Trump on questions about possible collusion was contained in a letter that Trump's lawyers received on Friday, the person said. Another source said Mueller's letter stated the written responses would pertain to questions regarding potential conspiring between Trump associates and Russian Federation.

The special counsel's letter reportedly doesn't completely preclude a possible interview with Trump.

Following the "kissing" comments, the President went off on a familiar diatribe about the supposed illegitimacy of Mueller's investigation, which has already resulted in almost 40 indictments against Trump associates and Russians.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for the Special Counsel's office, declined to comment. After weeks of back-and-forth, Mueller warned Trump's legal team in a tense March meeting that he could subpoena Trump if he refused to grant an interview voluntarily.

Some of Trump's advisers viewed Mueller's new letter as a sign of begrudging acceptance that he would lose a legal battle to compel the president to testify.

Trump: "But I had a business dispute with Mueller before that".

Trump claimed at the time that Mueller had multiple conflicts of interest, according to a January NYT report that relied on four unnamed sources. The understanding reached so far is that the president's lawyers and Mueller's team will reach a common understanding of the time required to provide legal answers, and that process will likely takes weeks - not days.

Trump's lawyers have tried to put off a formal interview, saying repeatedly that to determine whether the Trump campaign conspired with Russia's election interference and whether Trump tried to obstruct the inquiry, Mueller can find the answers in the interviews his investigators have conducted with witnesses, including senior White House aides and administration officials, and more than 1.4 million documents turned over by the White House. Giuliani has said Trump does not recall asking Comey to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn and he does not want the president to be accused of lying about the episode.
