Trump’s possible collusion with Russia still at ‘heart’ of Mueller investigation, lead prosecutor suggestsA hint that special counsel Robert Mueller is still pursuing the question of whether there was collusion between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia has emerged during a closed-door hearing. Comments by one of Mr Mueller’s lead prosecutors, disclosed in a transcript of the hearing in Washington last week, suggest that the special counsel continues to pursue at least one theory about a possible deal between Trump’s campaign and Russia. According to the theory, while Russia was taking steps to bolster Mr Trump’s candidacy, people in his orbit were discussing deals to end a dispute over Russia’s incursions into Ukraine.
