How long did Trump have Mueller's Questionnaire which he just responded/submitted this month?


I believe Mueller gave Trump the Questionnaire in May 2018....I'm not positive so I post this thread...


When did Mueller give tRump the questionnaire? Was it before Manafort went to trail in September and was convicted? Manafort made a plea after September trial...So, I tend to recall tRump has had the Mueller questions for at least 6 months...so how could the questionnaire be bait?

Some here are discussing how tRump may of had inside information from Manafort's plea deal responses to assist him with his questionaire.....but/...if the questions were sent to tRump in May 2018 then how could such information from Manafort be significant since Manafort didn't make his plea deal until mid-September after his trial/ conviction?

So, all this speculation may not be fruitful insight....

What say you folks?

2. i think the speculation is that manafort thought he had insight into what mueller could prove

not what the questions were, but whether or not mueller had any evidence that would refute certain lies that donnie might tell in response.

the idea is that through his "cooperation", manafort was able to figure out (or was fed disinformation) that mueller had no evidence that x, y, or z happened. that would then make it seem that donnie could lie with impunity.


the questions may have been submitted long ago, but donnie might have used manafort's insights to decide to lie, or to craft a lie he thought he could get away with.

3. It is my understanding that lawyers from both sides, Trump and Manafort...

...had an agreement to share information?

Is that not correct?

5. Giuliani told Politico that there was joint defense agreement

that allows the Trump attorneys and Manafort's attorneys to share information without waiving attorney-client privilege.

I've drafted several such agreements over the years. Hard to know its scope and exactly what it allows without seeing it.

4. Well apparently from what I'm reading

the answers to the questions do not too much coincide with Manafort nor t-rump. Which is bad news with both.
