During a joint press conference alongside Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg following a meeting at the White House Wednesday, President Trump told a reporter it was “unlikely” that he would be asked to sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller since there was “no collusion” between his 2016 presidential campaign and Russia.
Trump told the reporter, “We’ll see what happens. When they have no collusion…it seems unlikely that you’d even have an interview.”
The reporter’s probing comes in response to multiple reports in the last week stating that Mueller is likely to interview Trump in the near future as part of his ongoing investigation. NBC News also reported that Trump’s lawyers have been discussing possible stipulations to the interview, such as answering questions in writing.
Trump continued to defend himself: “There was absolutely no collusion, everybody knows it. I’ve been in office for 11 months, for 11 months they’ve had this phony cloud over this administration, over our Government, and it has hurt our Government.”
“It is 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,” he added.
Do you think Mueller will insist on interviewing Trump?
