President Trump has said that he has answered questions for Special Counsel Robert Mueller's "Russiagate" investigation, but has not submitted those answers yet. "I've answered them very easily", Trump said, adding one has to "always be careful when you answer questions with people that probably have bad intentions".
"I'm sure they're tricked up", Trump said.
Trump had huddled with lawyers at the White House this week but made clear: "My lawyers don't write answers, I write answers".
While the President is no stranger to criticising the Special Counsel, the tweets sent on Thursday were unusually specific.
The Trump administration is growing increasingly anxious and bracing for a slew of indictments as a result of the special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation, according to a new Politico report. "Now, the questions were very routinely answered by me".
Rudolph Giuliani, the president's lawyer, told The Washington Post that the legal team was still deciding whether some of Mueller's questions they agreed to answer in September would cause legal problems for the president. Mr. Whitaker has been a vocal opponent of the special counsel probe.

"The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess", Trump tweeted Thursday as part of a series of morning posts.
Four people connected with Mr Trump's campaign and presidency - campaign chairman Paul Manafort, advisers Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos, as well as former national security adviser Michael Flynn - have been charged and further indictments could be issued. "They have found no collusion and have gone absolutely nuts".
His written response, though not yet delivered, signals a new phase in the Mueller probe, the year-and-a-half-long investigation that has produced guilty pleas and convictions from several top Trump aides even as the special counsel and the White House have engaged in lengthy negotiations about how - or if - the president would give evidence.
In 2016, USA intelligence agencies concluded that Russian Federation had used a state-authorised campaign of cyber attacks and fake news stories planted on social media in an attempt to turn the election against Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton.
Democrats and a number of Republicans have raised concerns about Mr Whitaker's appointment, with a bipartisan group of USA senators renewing a push for legislation to protect the special counsel. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican, has opposed any such legislation.
