The New York Times first reported that the special counsel would accept some answers in writing from the president in its investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Giuliani's startling admission was tucked inside an expansive New Yorker profile of the former New York City mayor and Trump attorney, published online Monday.

The person familiar with the letter said Mueller's office indicated it would later assess what additional information it needs from the president, leaving open the possibility that Mueller's team might still seek answers on obstruction-related questions in an in-person interview.

The question of whether Trump will submit to an interview has been a long-running debate inside the president's legal team.

After weeks of back-and-forth, Mueller warned Trump's legal team in a tense March meeting that he could subpoena Trump if he refused to grant an interview voluntarily. For one thing, Trump asserts, Mueller interviewed with Trump for the FBI Director job, and didn't get it, and is presumably disgruntled.

Giuliani, who like the president has repeatedly described the Russian Federation probe as a "witch hunt", told journalist Jeffrey Toobin that Trump's original legal team had struck a deal with Mueller about his expected final report that would allow the White House to "object to the public disclosure of information that might be covered by executive privilege".

Trump's lawyers have tried to put off a formal interview, saying repeatedly that to determine whether the Trump campaign conspired with Russia's election interference and whether Trump tried to obstruct the inquiry, Mueller can find the answers in the interviews his investigators have conducted with witnesses, including senior White House aides and administration officials, and more than 1.4 million documents turned over by the White House.
