President Donald Trump took aim at special counsel Robert Mueller’s desire to ask him dozens of questions regarding the 2016 presidential election, in a Tuesday morning tweet.

The questions Mueller wishes to ask Trump were revealed late Monday evening by The New York Times.

The questions span the gamut from inquiring as to Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election to the circumstances surrounding the firing of former FBI director James Comey. Trump has been accused of possibly obstructing of justice when he allegedly asked Comey in a private oval office meeting to drop a criminal probe into then national security advisor Mike Flynn.
