33 Key Questions for Robert Mueller

Crucial questions that should be asked when former special counsel testifies before House committees on July 17.
Ahead of Mueller’s congressional testimony, we are raising 33 crucial questions that the former special counsel should be asked.

Elaboration and background for each question is contained in this admittedly lengthy article.
1) Did Attorney General William Barr in any way misrepresent your 448-page report?
2) Who actually wrote Volume I and Volume II of your report?
3) Were any of the authors of your report in contact or consulting with representatives of either Brookings Institution or Atlantic Council?
4) In your report, you reference “efforts to curtail the Special Counsel’s investigation.” Did the president ever actually limit or impede your investigative?
5) Why did you provide a conclusion on collusion but not on obstruction?
6) At what point did you and/or the special counsel team determine that there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia?
7) You determined there was no collusion on the part of the Trump campaign, which implies that you also determined the allegations within the Steele dossier to be invalid. Was there an obligation on your part to inform the FISA court of this and did you do so?
8) Did you examine the effects on the election that may have resulted from a Fusion-led Steele disinformation campaign?
9) Why did you not examine the Hillary Clinton campaign’s and the DNC’s ties to Fusion GPS, Christopher Steele, and the dossier?
10) Did you examine Bruce Ohr’s interactions with Steele and the FBI during and after the election?
11) Why did you not investigate the work of Nellie Ohr on behalf of Fusion GPS, along with her ties to Ukrainian member of Parliament Serhiy Leschenko?
12) Did you investigate Christopher Steele’s discussions with State Department official Kathleen Kavalec?
13) Did you investigate election meddling by any countries other than Russia?
14) Why did your report omit information regarding Fusion’s employment by Russian clients while they were also employed by Perkins Coie on behalf of the DNC?
15) Why did you report omit Christopher Steele’s direct ties to Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska—including the fact that Steele was actually employed by Deripaska?
16) Why was selective editing used in the representation of the transcript of a phone call between the president’s attorney, John Dowd, and the attorney for former national security adviser Michael Flynn?
17) Did you fully investigate the origins of the alleged DNC server hack, and what forensic evidence was actually examined?

DNC lawsuit: “In July 2015, Russian Intelligence gained access to [DNC] networks and maintained that access until at least June 2016,”
18) Did you investigate the FBI’s initiation of its July 31, 2016 counterintelligence investigation and the role John Brennan had in providing the information that helped establish it?
19) Why was selective editing used in the representation of communications between former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen and Giorgi Rtskhiladze, who was born in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia and has been a U.S. citizen since 2017?
20) Why did you use May 6, 2016, as the date of a meeting between George Papadopoulos and a representative of a foreign government—and was this in reference to Australian diplomat Alexander Downer?
21) Why did you fail to note that Rod Rosenstein and then-AG Jeff Sessions had discussed the need to remove James Comey as FBI director prior to Sessions’s confirmation as AG?
22) Why was George Nader, a witness who is mentioned more than 100 times in your report, allowed to leave the country, and why wasn’t it disclosed that he was charged for possession of child pornography?
23) Why have you not made publicly available the unredacted versions of the two additional scope memos from Rod Rosenstein? Do any additional memos exist?
24) Who leaked Gen. Michael Flynn’s phone calls with the Russian ambassador—a felony violation? Was there a FISA or national security letter issued on Flynn?
25) Is there a 302 FBI document from Jan. 19, 2017, on Gen. Michael Flynn?
26) Why did the special counsel’s office delete all the data from Peter Strzok’s phone?
27) Why did you bring Peter Strzok and Lisa Page onto your team after they had been involved in the investigation into the Hillary Clinton email server investigation? Were you aware of their personal relationship?
28) Why did the special counsel interview Peter Strzok approximately one week before he was removed from the special counsel investigation?
29) Why did you staff your investigation with people who appeared to have a political bias and had publicly demonstrated support for Clinton and the Obama administration?
30) Please describe your May 16, 2017, meeting with President Donald Trump and then-DAG Rod Rosenstein. Was the possibility of your becoming the FBI director discussed at the meeting?
31) When did you learn of the Strzok emails and did you learn of them from IG Michael Horowitz or from acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe? Did McCabe play a role in Peter Strzok’s removal from the special counsel’s investigation?
32) Why did you choose to step outside a normal prosecutorial role and comment publicly that your investigation did not exonerate President Trump?
33) Why did you fail to charge Joseph Mifsud, despite your findings that he lied to the special counsel team? Are any of the people listed in your report, such as Mifsud, Konstantin Kilimnik, or Felix Sater, U.S. government informants?
Many more questions could be added - and some obvious questions may have been left off.

But this listing should provide an ample starting point.
