Trump team ‘fear White House staff wearing wires’ to collect evidence for Russia investigation

Trump team ‘fear White House staff wearing wires’ to collect evidence for Russia investigation

The White House staff are worrying very much because of the special prosecutor’s Russia investigation, the members of Trump office fear their colleagues are secretly wearing recording devices to surreptitiously collect conversations for Robert Mueller.

The West Wing begins handing over documents requested the team led by prosecutor Mueller and investigating possible links between the Trump campaign and Russia. How to respond in this case, it’s still unclear for the White House, that’s why everybody feels uncomfortable. There are mounting anxiety and disagreement at the same time, which adds an element of uncertainty in the working environment.

This disagreement spilled out in public at a steak restaurant close to the White House, where two lawyers working for Donald Trump held a loud and indiscreet conversation in earshot of a reporter from the New York Times. According to its reporter, the anxiety in the White House was such that some staff no longer felt able to trust their colleagues. That is how the working environment turns into a nightmare.

Recently, the White House officials privately express fear that colleagues may be wearing a wire to surreptitiously record conversations for prosecutor Mueller who is heading an investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia’s alleged attempt to interfere with the 2016 election.

Last week, Mueller’s team of 17 prosecutors includes experts in transnational crime and money laundering, started his epic investigation in the White House.
