NYT on Trump

The hottest story over the last year has been in regards to what role Donald Trumps's campaign played in the Russia hacking of the Democratic National Committee. As expected, the former host of "The Apprentice" has denied any wrongdoing, despite several well-respected news outlets and government agencies confirming that Russia hacked the election with the ultimate goal of electing Trump to office.

Once an investigation was set up to look into Russia's impact on the election and what, if any, role Trump played in the hacking, the president ended up firing then FBI Director James Comey. In Comey's place to help lead the investigation was Robert Mueller, who has since indicted several past associates of Trump on various charges. As reported by the New York Times on January 24, Trump has now agreed to meet with Mueller, with Nyt report Maggie Haberman elaborating in a tweet of her own.

On Wednesday night, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman spoke with Donald Trump before he took off for a foreign trip to Switzerland, with the president saying he was looking forward to speaking to Robert Mueller.

In a follow-up tweet, Haberman commented further on her conversation with Trump, revealing controversial details about his mindset. "POTUS, obsessed with Clinton still, asked me in response to my question about under oath whether she did to the FBI," Haberman wrote.

Continuing with her tweet, Maggie Haberman reported that Donald Trump doesn't seem to understand that lying to the FBI, even when not under oath, is a major crime.

"He doesn’t seem to know that lying to the FBI even without being under oath is a crime," Haberman wrote, before throwing shade by tweeting, "Perhaps Flynn can tell him." In a follow-up tweet, Haberman posted about Trump's feelings before heading off to a foreign country by saying he is "desperate for love from the elites he claims to despise" but was also "ready for his close-up at Davos."

Moving forward

As Donald Trump heads off to Switzerland to take part in the World Economic Forum, all eyes will be on his return as he gets ready to meet with Robert Mueller to discuss the Russian investigation. While it's unknown when the two will get together, only time will tell how it all plays out.
