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

As special counsel Robert Mueller has ramped up his own Russian investigation and brought charges against four of President Donald Trump's former campaign advisers, Republicans have changed focus in their own Russia probes.

Mr Trump said "we'll see what happens" when asked if he'd provide an interview to Mr Mueller's team.

Mueller and his team are investigating whether Russian Federation and Trump's Republican campaign co-ordinated to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election and whether Trump worked to obstruct an FBI investigation into his aides.

"Frankly, its an agreement that I have no problem with, but I had a problem with the agreement that they signed, because, as usual, they made a bad deal", Trump told a news conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg.

"When you talk about interviews, Hillary Clinton had an interview where she wasn't sworn in, she wasn't given the oath, they didn't take notes, they didn't record and it was done on the Fourth of July weekend", Mr Trump said.

GOP leaders are staying quiet while more moderate Republicans are speaking out against President Donald Trump's incendiary comments in a White House meeting Thursday about "shithole" countries in Africa. More alarmingly, Republicans in Congress are joining Trump and conservative media outlets in brutal attacks on the integrity of the FBI and the US intelligence community, which are conducting the investigation.

And he says the GOP has not supported efforts to get information from the White House about the firing of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, saying the White House has ignored bipartisan requests while the GOP has done little to pursue it.

"I think that if there's credible information that Ivanka Trump had contact with any participants in that meeting, at the time of the meeting, that she should be brought in", Schiff said.

That has angered Democrats, who say those probes are distractions from the Russian Federation investigations.

Any move by special counsel Robert Mueller to go beyond collusion and obstruction of justice to probe possible money laundering by President Trump and his family could trigger a major constitutional clash - and present Congress with a massive political headache. Trump targeted the price tag before he was commander in chief, saying he would save billions, and Lockheed Martin responded with commitments to lower its costs.

Trump touched on a wide range of topics as he took questions at Camp David. She added that Norwegians generally didn't want "to be flattered by this US president in this way".

Ornstein compared the Russian Federation probes to Congress' investigation of the Watergate scandal that caused former President Richard Nixon to resign in 1974.

While CNN pointed out that those pushing the president to avoid Mueller include "key allies on Capitol Hill" and lawyers on his team, they also highlighted that there are other Trump supporters that say he should cooperate in a way that "limits his potential legal exposure".

"Every single witness we've interviewed has been consistent on what they have testified to", he said. Her staff helped conduct the interview with Simpson, who had also asked for the interview to be released. Adding that he'll see "what happens", the president noted that they "have no collusion" to make the case that it won't be necessary.

Lockheed Martin - the primary defense contractor for the fifth-generation F-35 fighter - declined to comment on whether a F-52 aircraft is in development but the company has never publicly mentioned plans for an aircraft by that name. Florida Rep. Tom Rooney, one of several Republicans leading the intelligence committee probe, has said it's time for the investigation to wind down. "We haven't closed any doors", the source said.

Democratic Senator from California Dianne Feinstein.

"I feel strongly about the environment", he said.

Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, also criticised Trump's tweet, saying it "smacks of interference in investigations and I think that's inappropriate".

Two Trump campaign aides - including campaign manager Paul Manafort - have been indicted in the investigation.
