The New York Times released a list of questions, compiled by Donald Trump’s lawyer based on information from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, that Trump’s team believes Mueller would ask  him. Here’s a sampling of what he wants to know from Trump and why.

Questions about former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn

Mueller has a handful questions related to Flynn, whom Trump fired in February 2017. Flynn has since pleaded guilty in Mueller’s probe to lying to the FBI about conversations he had with the Russian ambassador during the presidential transition period. For instance, Mueller wants to know: “After the resignations, what efforts were made to reach out to Mr. Flynn about seeking immunity or possible pardon?” We already know Trump’s pardons disregard the rule of law.

Questions about former FBI Director James Comey

Mueller has a series of questions related to meetings and conversations Trump had with Comey leading up to firing him, including: “What did you mean in your interview with Lester Holt about Mr. Comey and Russia?” We know Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey — he admitted in the Holt interview he fired him because of “this Russia thing with Trump,” but demanding loyalty from him and asking intelligence officials to deny collusion are also evidence of obstruction of justice.

Two of Mueller’s Comey-related questions have to do with the former FBI director’s intelligence briefing shortly before the inauguration, especially pertaining to Russian election interference. Trump has failed to decisively act in response to Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

Questions about Attorney General Jeff Sessions

Trump has not fired his attorney general, but Mueller has questions for Trump about Sessions’ recusal in the Russia investigation, attempt to resign, and Trump’s criticisms of him. Mueller wants to know “What did you think and do regarding the recusal of Mr. Sessions?” and “What efforts did you make to try to get him to change his mind?” We already know Trump told White House counsel Don McGahn to convince Sessions to not recuse himself, presumably to influence the investigation.

Questions about campaign coordination with Russia

Mueller wants to know when Trump became aware of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, and a Russian agent. Mueller is also interested in Trump’s involvement in the communication strategy surrounding the meeting, such as the release of Don Jr.’s emails. Attendees of the meeting say it was about the Magnitsky Act, which revolves around Russian adoption policy, but the Act is really about money laundering.

Another question Mueller has is: “What communication did you have with Michael D. Cohen, Felix Sater, and others, including foreign nationals, about Russian real estate developments during the campaign?” Sater, a channel to Russia, convicted felon, and Trump associate, is not just a run-of-the-mill white collar criminal; he was a geopolitical operative who made serious contributions to U.S. intelligence throughout the last two decades. Cohen, Trump’s lawyer, is entangled in controversy. Since the FBI raided his home and office, there has been speculation he might “flip” on Trump — but how would Cohen flip on Trump if Trump is innocent? Cohen has since taken the Fifth Amendment, an action Trump has previously likened to being guilty.

Mueller also wants to know: “What discussions did you have during the campaign regarding any meeting with Mr. Putin? Did you discuss it with others?” We know that during the 2016 NRA convention, Alexander Torshin, the deputy governor of Russia’s central bank, tried to arrange a meeting between Putin and Trump.

Finally, Mueller wants to ask Trump about discussions he had during the campaign about Russian sanctions. Trump has repeatedly ignored Russia sanctions as president, and only acted when his hand was forced.
