Trump answers question about possible Mueller interview by attacking Hillary Clinton

Trump Says He's Not Considering Firing Mueller

"Certainly I'll see what happens", he said during a news conference following a bilateral meeting with Norway's prime minister, Erna Solberg.

Trump's legal team has reportedly talked about options for the interview that include written responses to questions instead of a sit-down interview.

The Russia investigation has hovered over the administration as Trump continues to try to tackle complex domestic issues, specifically immigration reform that both addresses the legal status of those covered by an Obama-era immigration policy allowing children brought to the United States illegally as children, as well as funding for his long-promised border wall. "When they have no collusion and nobody's found collusion at any level it seems unlikely that you'd have an interview".

Russian Federation and the entire world are laughing at the stupidity of the probe into the alleged collusion between the Trump campaign team and Moscow, US President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter on Wednesday. There was no collusion, everybody including the Dems knows there was no collusion, & yet on and on it goes. Russian Federation and the world is laughing at the stupidity they are witnessing. "[Russia President Vladimir] Putin can't love that", Trump said.


The remarks mark a turning point from Trump's statement last June, when he said that he would be "100%" willing to testify under oath about his conversations with Comey. Asked in recent press conference whether he would do an interview with Mr Mueller, the President quickly switched topics.

Democrats said Trump is trying to block the investigation, citing his call to Republicans to "take control" of it.

Ryan K. Dickey was assigned to Mueller's team in early November from the Justice Department's Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section, a special counsel's office spokesman said.

The original Federal Bureau of Investigation counter intelligence probe was launched in part because a Trump campaign adviser was said to have told an Australian diplomat that Russian Federation had emails that could embarrass Democrats, and in July 2016, private Democratic messages thought to have been hacked by Russian Federation began appearing online. Norway is a major supporter of the worldwide pact, but Trump said the proposed restrictions on energy use hurt American businesses.
