Russia probe: Trump says interview with Mueller 'unlikely'

COMMUNITY TOUR DAY Sponsored

President Donald Trump said again on Wednesday that the investigation into links between his campaign and Russian interference in the 2016 USA elections is nothing more than a witch hunt, as the President tried repeatedly to turn the attention of reporters to his election opponent Hillary Clinton, as Mr. Trump raised the possibility that there was no need for him to speak with investigators - because he did nothing wrong.

As far as any potential interview with Mueller, Trump left things vague, saying "certainly, we'll see what happens" while intimating that it might not be necessary because the collusion is unsubstantiated.

"But it's really with the Democrats and Russian Federation".

"When they have no collusion...it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview", Trump said during a press conference at the White House Wednesday, during which he called the Russian Federation investigation a "Democratic hoax".

Mueller is also believed to be investigating whether Trump and his inner circle sought to obstruct justice, which has raised speculation that the president himself would be interviewed.

Trump said he would "100 percent" be willing to share his version of the encounter with Comey under oath.

"But it has been determined that there was no collusion, and by virtually everybody, so we'll see what happens", he added. "The witch hunt continues", Trump claimed. There was no collusion, everybody including the Dems knows there was no collusion, & yet on and on it goes. "Republicans should finally take control!"

Mueller indicted former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and another campaign aide, Rick Gates, in October. The President used the bipartisan meeting before television cameras to express his eagerness to tackle comprehensive immigration reform after agreeing to a legislative fix on DACA - signaling a break with his hard-line position on illegal immigration. The president was not asked about that aspect on Wednesday. We need the wall for security.

Trump had previously said he would be "100 percent" willing to meet Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

Still, like other United States allies who share a border with Russia, Norway has been a critical U.S. partner in guarding against Russian aggression, and relations between Norway and Russia have soured in recent years amid Russia's increasingly aggressive posture.
