Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “House Investigating Whether Trump Lied To Mueller In U.S. Russia Probe”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives is probing whether President Donald Trump lied in his written testimony submitted to then-U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller as part of the completed federal investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, CNN said on Monday.

A House lawyer told a federal appeals court in Washington on Monday that lawmakers were examining whether Trump’s written answers to federal investigators were untruthful, CNN reported.

Mueller submitted a report to U.S. Attorney General William Barr in March after completing a 22-month investigation that detailed Russia’s campaign of hacking and propaganda to boost Trump’s candidacy in the 2016 election as well as extensive contacts between Trump’s campaign and Moscow.

House lawyers disclosed the investigation into Trump’s written responses in September, saying in a court filing that materials from the Mueller report could show Trump was not honest about his knowledge of his campaign’s contacts with WikiLeaks, which published emails hacked from the Democratic Party.

The redacted Mueller report materials “have direct bearing on whether the president was untruthful, and further obstructed the special counsel’s investigation, when in providing written responses to the special counsel’s questions he denied being aware of any communications between his campaign and WikiLeaks,” the House lawyers said in the filing.
