Mueller’s team has already questioned former FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the first time anyone who worked in the Trump administration has been directly interviewed.

The overall investigation may drag on for many months, but it is becoming clear that the president is most likely going to have to answer Mueller's questions in person, which may prove to be an explosive encounter, as well as another defining moment of an already extraordinary presidential term.

This comes after rumors circulated earlier this year that Jenner was expecting her first child with boyfriend Travis Scott. While the starlet has never publicly confirmed the news, the ad was enough to convince many fans that the 20-year-old is indeed pregnant. No comment on the issue yet from Kylie.

ICYMI: Could Manufacturing Clouds Solve Global Warming? Scientists are Studying it.

To combat the warming of Earth’s atmosphere, U.S. scientists are considering stratospheric climate geoengineering, or in other words, spraying sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere to manufacture clouds.
