Trump says interview with Mueller ‘unlikely

Trump refuses to commit to Mueller interview for Russian Federation probe

Donald Trump's lawyers are reportedly discussing ways in which the President could be interviewed as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into alleged ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign. They can also call high-profile witnesses for questioning, schedule public hearings and release testimony or other information.

The investigation has two spearheads: special counsel Robert Mueller, operating under the aegis of the justice department (executive branch); and congressional committees (legislative branch).

Mr Mueller is trying to determine if Mr Trump's campaign advisers colluded with the Russian government to influence the 2016 presidential election.

At some stage, Mueller is likely to submit his report to Congress.

Thank you for your feedback.

Trump has repeatedly attacked the probe, and has falsely asserted that it has been proven that there was no collusion between Team Trump and Vladimir Putin's Russian Federation, including in a tweet on Wednesday.

Lawyers for the president have spoken with FBI investigators about a potential interview, three people familiar with the matter. Democrats are running for office and trying to say things.

He made this comment during a joint press conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg. "But when they have no collusion - and nobody has found any collusion at any level - it seems unlikely that you would even have an interview", Trump said.

"I've written twice in my column a quote about one of - the people closest to Donald Trump during the campaign saying he's got early stage dementia", Scarborough said.

Trump also repeated that the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US election is a "Witch Hunt" and says "Republicans should finally take control!"

The president's lawyers have previously stated their determination to cooperate with Mueller's requests.

President Trump said plans to build the border wall are still included and also spoke on DACA.
