Trump declines to commit to Mueller interview for Russian Federation probe

"If I could make one national security recommendation to the president it would be stop watching Judge Napolitano on Fox", Schiff said on CNN, referring to Andrew Napolitano, a Fox News analyst.

While discussions are underway about President Donald Trump possibly speaking with special counsel Robert Mueller's team, FBI investigators have not so far requested an interview with Vice President Mike Pence, a person familiar with the matter said.

Rosenstein appointed Mueller special counsel days later. He is authorized to investigate Russia's interference in the 2016 election, its possible links to the Trump campaign, and "any matters that may arise directly from the investigation". "I wish we would do some of that".

In the last one week, news reports have appeared in the USA media that Mueller was seeking an interview with Trump as part of his investigation.

When asked whether he would talk to Mueller's team, Trump deflected the question by repeatedly stating there was "no collusion" between his campaign team and Russian Federation.

Solberg is highlighting the two nation's deep roots and says she assured the president that Norway is an ally and a friend "that you can count on".

He also reportedly represents White House Counsel Donald McGahn and former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus in relation to the Russian Federation investigation.


Trump on Wednesday pivoted from the prospect of an interview to criticizing the FBI for its handling of the investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while at the State Department.

Trump, speaking alongside Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos in May after he fired James Comey as Federal Bureau of Investigation director, reacted to the appointment of a special counsel by saying, "Well, I respect the move but the entire thing has been a witch hunt".

We know for a fact that there is zero evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians in any criminal way.

The President's lawyers have previously stated their determination to cooperate with requests in the probe, which has already resulted in charges against four of Mr Trump's campaign advisers.

Norway purchased 52 F-35 jets and Trump appeared to "misread a written statement and combine the figure of 52 planes with the F fighter designation", the BBC reported.

Trump has often invoked Feinstein on the collusion issue. Her staff helped conduct the interview with Simpson, who had also asked for the interview to be released.
