Friday could prove a big day for the probe in Russian mediation in the 2016 elections, as the deadlines arrive at the Special Council Robert Mueller to release more documents on two former Trump allies.
At the same time, former FBI director James Comey is scheduled to testify to Congress in a door interview, but he has been granted permission to speak publicly and Mueller
Comey, fired by Trump in May 2017, is at the heart of investigations as to whether Trump tried to prevent the special investigation investigation and Mueller is said to investigate whether Trump hindered justice by shooting Comey when he monitored the Russian probe.
Special Adviser Robert Mueller is expected to submit several important applications for Russia’s probe to meet a deadline on Friday, 7 December.
The documents describe the collaboration between former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen and what his law describes as lies told to those of the former Trump campaign, chairman Paul Manafort, which led to his appeal being collapsed.
Mueller is expected to submit his convictions for Cohen, who in November committed financial crime and lied to the congress of a Russian property project that Trump pursued during the 201
6 presidential campaign. Trump claims that Cohen is located.

The team will also reveal what they say is “crimes and lies “by Manafort. They claim he lied to the FBI and Mueller office, which led to his action being lifted.
Mueller has not yet shown what Manafort claimed to have relied on, but said in November that he lied “in a variety of subjects” and would provide further information on a subsequent application.
The Wall Street Journal reported in November that Mueller believes that Manafort lied about his lobby entrance and meets a Russian-Ukrainian political operative
However, it is possible that Mueller’s submission will be heavily edited, as was the case with Mueller’s judgmental memo for former security adviser Michael Flynn was released on Tuesday.

In addition to Mueller filming, more information may come out against Trump on Friday as Comey testifies to the Court Committee. The testimony will take place privately, but under an agreement with the committee, Comey will talk about the question after the interview. A transcript will also be released.
Comey discusses the FBI’s handling of the probe in Russian interference in the 2016 election, as well as the FBI’s investigations by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
Trump has said on national television that “this thing of Russia” had been a factor in his decision to shoot Comey.
Trump tweeted on Friday morning that “Robert Mueller and Leakin” Lyin “James Comey are best friends” and claimed it was a “conflict of interest” for Mueller.
Comey has previously described attempts by the president and his circle to draw him to his trust as a mob boss and said that Trump was known to “lie about everything” and had a need for “complete control”.
