Special Counsel Robert Mueller "has recalled for questioning at least one participant in a controversial meeting with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer at Trump Tower in June 2016, and is looking into President Trump's misleading claim that the discussion focused on adoption, rather than an offer to provide damaging information about Hillary Clinton," per the L.A. Times' David Cloud.

"The Times is not identifying the individual Mueller has asked to return for further questioning as part of an agreement to keep the identity confidential."
