Mueller Interview With Trump Is Said to Be Likely

Mueller Interview With Trump Is Said to Be Likely

Two more - including former White House national security advisor Michael Flynn - have pled guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about their contacts with Kremlin-connected officials.

"I understand Chris severed his relationship with the FBI out of concern that he didn't know what was happening inside the FBI and there was a concern that the FBI was being manipulated for political ends by the Trump people", Mr Simpson said.

Numerous congressional committees along with special counsel Robert Mueller are now investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between Trump's team and Moscow during the race.

Mr. Trump has repeatedly denied colluding with Russian Federation, and on Wednesday he referred to the special counsel's investigation as the "single greatest Witch Hunt in American history".

President Donald Trump has once again labelled the ongoing probe into potential coordination between his campaign and Moscow the "single greatest witch hunt" in U.S. political history.

"There is collusion, but it's really with the Democrats and the Russians", he said, adding, "the witch hunt continues".

Mr Trump called the investigation a "phony cloud" over his administration. "It does hurt our government", he said.

"The president again calling the Russian investigation a Democratic hoax".

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

"I'll speak to attorneys", Trump told reporters in the East Room during a news conference with Prime Minister Erna Solberg of Norway, when asked whether he would speak with Mueller without preconditions.

Trump Jr., the president's son-in-law and senior adviser and former Trump campaign chairman all attended the meeting with the Russian lawyer and lobbyist.

"It seems unlikely you'd even have an interview", he said.

The poll by Politico/Morning Consult, published on Wednesday, found that 48 percent of voters believe it is either very or somewhat likely that the usa president will be cleared in the ongoing Russia-related investigation, while 37 percent think it is not too likely or not at all likely that he will be exonerated.

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

The material wasn't classified, and Feinstein said Wednesday that she didn't do anything illegal.

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

Psychiatrist Richard Friedman argues that we don't need to give Donald Trump a psychological examination to make a judgment about whether he's fit to be president.
