Mueller Hires Top Cyber Crime Prosecutor For Russia Investigation

The president's legal team has been discussing the. possible parameters and scope of an interview with the special counsel's office as part of its investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump's campaign, NBC News has reported.

"We're going to see what happens", the United States president said. He eventually said that "it seems unlikely that you would even have an interview", given the his assertion there hadn't been any collusion between him or his associates and Russian Federation. Before and since the tweet, Trump and his lawyers have said the President is not under investigation.

Trump has said Democrats and other critics are using Russia as excuse for Hillary Clinton's loss in the 2016 election, and unfairly trying to tie the president to Russians who hacked Democratic emails and promoted "fake news" about Clinton.

Trump says during a joint news conference with the prime minister of Norway that "we'll see what happens" on whether he'll provide an interview to Mueller's team. "It's a Democrat hoax", Trump said.

Citing multiple indictments and guilty pleas in the Russian Federation investigation, Fox News host Shepard Smith flatly denied President Donald Trump's Wednesday claim it was a "Democrat hoax". Four former Trump campaign members have already been charged in connection with Mr Mueller's probe, though none of the charges specifically mentioned collusion.

"Working with countries, whether it's Russian Federation or China or India, or any of the countries that surround this world and encompass this world, is a very good thing. Republicans should finally take control!" "We need the wall for stopping the drugs from coming in", Trump said when asked if he would sign a bill that didn't include funding for the wall.

Muller has interviewed a number of Trump's senior aides and associates in recent months, including White House adviser Jared Kushner, also the president's son-in-law, former chief of staff Reince Priebus, communications director Hope Hicks and White House counsel Don McGahn.

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

Glenn R. Simpson, co-founder of the research firm Fusion GPS, arrives for a scheduled appearance before a closed House Intelligence Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington. "The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public".

Trump should be asked why, exactly, he thought the statement should be changed, and if it's because he believed it would be wrong or illegal for the meeting to have been about dirt on Hillary Clinton (which is what Trump Jr. was promised).

Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, an Iowa Republican, objected to Feinstein's release of the testimony.
