Wash­ing­ton, Dec. 8: Spe­cial Coun­sel Robert Mueller has filed a new set of pa­pers in court that may in­crease the le­gal woes of US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump in con­nec­tion with the al­leged Rus­sian in­ter­fer­ence in the 2016 polls and pos­si­ble con­tacts be­tween Trump’s cam­paign and Moscow.

While the court pa­pers does not an­swer the cen­tral ques­tion of whether Trump or his as­so­ciates con­spired with the Rus­sians, the doc­u­ments sug­gest that the Pres­i­dent’s le­gal woes are far from over and re­veal a pre­vi­ously un­re­ported con­tact from a Rus­sian to Trump’s in­ner cir­cle dur­ing the cam­paign, ac­cord­ing to a re­port in the Wash­ing­ton Post.

The Court pa­pers di­rectly im­pli­cated Trump in plans to buy women’s si­lence as far back as 2014 and of­fer­ing new ev­i­dence of Rus­sian ef­forts to forge a po­lit­i­cal al­liance with Trump be­fore he be­came the Pres­i­dent — dis­clo­sures that show the deep­en­ing po­lit­i­cal and le­gal morass en­velop­ing the ad­min­is­tra­tion, said the re­port.
