The New York Times is reporting that the special counsel investigating Russian election meddling and obstruction of justice has given US President Donald Trump's lawyers a list of almost four dozen questions.

The Times reports that the questions from Robert Mueller's team cover Trump's motivations for firing FBI Director James Comey and contacts Trump's campaign had with Russians as well as other matters.

The Times reports that it obtained a list of the questions.

According to the newspaper, many of the questions centre on the obstruction issue, including Trump's reaction to Attorney General Jeff Sessions' recusal from the Russia investigation, a decision Trump has angrily criticised.

The questions also touch on the Russian meddling and whether the Trump campaign co-ordinated with the Kremlin in any way.
