MUELLER: Donald Trump.

Representative SWALLWELL: Thank you. Director Mueller, as a prosecutor you would agree that if a witness or suspect lies or obstructs or tampers with witnesses or destroys evidence during an investigation that generally that conduct can be used to show a consciousness of guilt. Would you agree with that?

MUELLER: Yes.

SWALWELL: Let's go through the different people associated with the Trump campaign and this investigation who lied to you and other investigators to cover up their disloyal and unpatriotic conduct. (And he then proceeded to do that, naming Mike Flynn, Michael Cohen, George Papadopoulos, Paul Manafort. Now, Roger Stone, one of Trump's longest-lived advisors, can be added to that list.)

SWALWELL: And your investigation was hampered by Trump campaign official's use of encryption communications. Is that right?

MUELLER: We believe that to be the case.

SWALWELL: You also believe to be the case that your investigation was hampered by deletion of electronic messages. Is that correct?

MUELLER: It would be, yes. Generally, any case would be if those kinds of communications are are used.

. . . . .

SWALWELL: Did you want to interview the president?

MUELLER: Yes.

SWALWELL: Director Mueller, on January 1, 2017, through March 2019, Donald Trump met with Vladimir Putin in person 6 times, called him 10 times and exchanged 4 letters with him. Between that time period, how many times did you meet with Donald Trump?

MUELLER: I'm not going to I'm not going to get into that.

SWALWELL: He did not meet with you in person. Is that correct?

MUELLER: He did not.

SWALWELL: Why is it so important that witnesses cooperate and tell the truth in an investigation like this?
