Trump Publicly Wavering on Mueller Interview

Trump Publicly Wavering on Mueller Interview

Mueller and his team of investigators have reportedly said they want to interview President Trump in person as they move forward with the Russian Federation probe - and Trump's lawyers are saud reaching out for ways to protect the president by limiting the inquiry.

In October she said there was "no proof" yet that there was any collusion between Russian Federation and Mr Trump's campaign, adding: "I think that proof will likely come with Mr. Mueller's investigation".

During a news conference in June, Trump said he was "100 percent" willing to testify under oath that former FBI Director James Comey lied during his testimony to Congress when he said that Trump asked him to quash an active investigation into one of his associates in February of previous year, weeks after the president asked his former FBI director to pledge personal loyalty.

Trump joined with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, highlighting the two nations' deep roots.

Trump has repeatedly rejected allegations of his collusion with Moscow, describing Mueller's probe as a "witch hunt".

An interview would bring its own set of risks for Trump, particularly given his penchant for speaking off-the-cuff.

Trump described the probe as a cloud over his administration. Trump could give a sworn statement to Mueller without doing an interview.
