Trump declines to commit to Mueller interview for Russian Federation probe

Trump declines to commit to Mueller interview for Russian Federation probe

President Donald Trump repeated his contention that there wasn't any collusion with Russian Federation, but he declined to say whether he would agree to a possible interview request from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian Federation meddling in last year's election.

Pressed on the topic, Mr Trump said it "seems unlikely" that the interview would occur, given the lack of evidence to support claims of collusion.

ADVERTISEMENTTrump's legal team is reportedly looking to find out if Trump would be directly interviewed by Mueller.

"There has been no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians or Trump and Russians", Trump said during a press conference Wednesday at the White House.

Mr Robert Mueller is said to be preparing to interview the President as part of his probe into the Trump campaign's possible ties to Russian Federation. Moscow has also been refuting these allegations.

The president has repeatedly used the phrase "no collusion" in response to questions about the ongoing Russian Federation investigation - 16 times in 30 minutes during an interview with the New York Times at his golf course in Florida late last month.

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

Trump also railed against a frequent target, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. "That's perhaps ridiculous and a lot of people looked at it as a pretty serious breach".

The President appeared to be referring to a 2016 interview the Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted with Ms Clinton regarding her private email server. Comey said in a statement last summer that although Clinton's behavior had been "extremely careless", the bureau would not recommend criminal charges be brought against her. The Justice Department which chose the special counsel is run by Trump's attorney general, Jeff Sessions.

"The single greatest Witch Hunt in American history continues", Trump tweeted.

"But it has been determined that there was no collusion, and by virtually everybody, so we'll see what happens", he added.

He was responding to Comey's testimony to Congress that Trump had asked him for personal loyalty and to relax his investigation of former national security advisor Michael T. Flynn, two things that Trump has denied.
