Trump calls interview with special counsel 'unlikely'

President Trump. Shealah Craighead  Official White House

President Donald Trump said Wednesday it "seems unlikely" that he'll have to meet with Special Counsel Robert Mueller regarding the ongoing investigation into allegations that Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 election, repeatedly adding that there was "no collusion".

"There is collusion, but it's really with the Democrats and the Russians", Trump quipped, telling reporters "the witch hunt continues".

Trump's position, stated during a news conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg at the White House, came in the wake of reports this week that Mueller and his team raised the possibility of an interview with the president during a meeting with his attorneys. No formal request has been sent, and no date has been set, but Mr Trump's lawyers are reportedly debating how best to handle the request when it comes.

Mueller has been investigating whether anyone from Trump's team assisted with Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential campaign, but also whether Trump tried to obstruct justice by impeding the probe.

President Donald Trump is accusing Democratic Sen. For 11 months, they've had this phony cloud over this administration, over our government.

He also called it a "Democrat hoax that was brought up as an excuse for losing an election that, frankly, the Democrats should have won because they have such a tremendous advantage in the Electoral College".

"It has been determined that there is no collusion by virtually everybody".

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.

"I can only say this, there was absolutely no collusion", the President said, again making the case that the investigation was damaging the United States. "Certainly, I'll see what happens, but when they have no collusion, and nobody's found collusion, at any level, it seems unlikely that you would even have an interview".
