Special counsel Robert Mueller assembled a team of lawyers for his investigation of Russian interference in the election and potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Mueller brought on private-sector attorneys and prosecutors from the Department of Justice.
Trump lawyers set to meet with Mueller While the lawyers have met with Mueller's team before and might again, the sources believe the upcoming meeting has greater significance because it comes after the completion of interviews of White House personnel requested by the special counsel and after all requested documents have been turned over.
Mueller could still request more documents and additional interviews. No request to interview the President or the vice president has been made, sources tell CNN.
No good cause to fire Mueller But Trump's team, led by John Dowd and Jay Sekulow, is hoping for signs that Mueller's investigation is nearing its end, or at least the part having to do with the President. Their goal is to help Trump begin to emerge from the cloud of the ongoing investigation, several of the sources explained.
The sources acknowledge that Mueller is under no obligation to provide any information and concede they may walk away with no greater clarity.
At a minimum, the lawyers hope to get a sense of what avenues Mueller is still working to investigate.

Reached Friday, Sekulow said, "We do not and will not discuss our periodic communications with the special counsel.
The Trump team's hopes for an investigation nearing its end contrast with a widely held view by other lawyers representing clients who have been interviewed. Those attorneys say that some of the questions asked by investigators suggest an inquiry with much more work left to be done.
Republicans ratchet up Mueller criticism Some of those questions focused on the Comey firing and efforts over the summer by White House officials, including the President, to issue a public statement in the name of Donald Trump Jr. Both lines of inquiry could indicate more work being done on whether anyone has tried to obstruct the criminal investigation, lawyers involved say.
Trump's lawyers are finding one other hopeful sign: Davis was not involved in the specific prostitution service Spitzer used that led to his resignation in Stone acted as Davis' campaign strategist in when she ran for New York governor on a platform that included legalizing marijuana and prostitution.
Andrew Miller, another former Stone associate who has been subpoenaed to appear before the Mueller grand jury, served as Davis' campaign manager in her unsuccessful bid. In lateDavis joined Stone's payroll to assist in email blasts, media bookings and other clerical matters, according to a source familiar with the situation. Trump and his administration clash over Russia It's not clear what the focus of Davis' voluntary interview was or how she may fit into the broader Mueller investigation about Russian interference in the election and potential collusion between Trump associates and Russians.

Mueller's team has been looking into possible contact between Stone and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange during the campaign, as well as Stone's finances. Prosecutors appear to be delving into Stone's personal life as well.
At least two witnesses were asked whether Stone was the father of Davis' son, according to people familiar with the questioning. The questions appear to have irked Stone, at least on Instagram. He posted a photo earlier this week of Davis and her child with the caption, "Why do FBI agents dispatched by Robert Mueller keep asking a number of my current and former associates if I am this baby's father?
