Trump says it "seems unlikely" he'll give Mueller interview

Trump says it

Donald Trump was forced to face White House reporters Wednesday afternoon, and it did not go well for him.

Speaking in a joint news conference with visiting Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg (EDS: a woman) on January 10, Trump reiterated his claim that there was "no collusion" between his presidential campaign and Russian Federation.

The Politico/Morning Consult poll comes on the heels of a reported push by US Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team to interview Trump, according to NBC News. I can only say this: There was absolutely no collusion.

Trump also called for Feinstein to face a "tough primary" race in her reelection campaign this year.

"There is collusion, but it's with the Democrats and the Russians, not the Republicans", Trump said.

"You can't say things that are false, knowingly false, and be able to smile as money pours into your bank account", Trump said. "It's a Democrat hoax", Trump said.

The President has told friends he's willing to talk with Mueller - the man Trump views as leading a "witch hunt" against him - to make the case there was no wrongdoing, sources told CNN.

Trump repeated eight times in his response that no collusion had yet been found between him or his associates and Russian Federation.

Push has come to shove, and better to allow this new phase to take its own course - to let pernicious Republican claims that the Russian Federation investigation is an abuse of power to collapse under their own weight - than shout into the night about impeachment and other not-ready-for-prime-time abstractions.




The special counsel's team of investigators has expressed interest in speaking with Trump, but no details have been worked out.

Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein released a transcript of the interview on Tuesday, after repeated disagreements with Republicans on the committee.

"It's got to include the wall", Trump said.

Republican Sen. Thom Tillis, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he had no issues with Trump talking to Mueller's team.

Glenn Simpson, co-founder of the research group Fusion GPS, said he gave the dossier about Trump to the Federal Bureau of Investigation because he was "very concerned" about a potential national security matter.

Solberg said Norway remains committed to the accord and that she believes the focus on a green economy can lead to great investment opportunities.

Grassley told CNN he opposed Feinstein's decision and contended the release would make voluntary testimony from future witnesses more hard.

At The Week, I explained why Trump's lawyers are so terrified of what will happen if the president sits down for an interview with Robert Mueller.

Feinstein said Simpson requested the transcript of his testimony be released to the public and that the American people deserved the chance to see his words and judge for themselves.
