President Donald Trump on Wednesday appeared to back off a commitment to meet investigators looking into Russia's role in the 2016 U.S. election, saying an interview was "unlikely" to take place.
The president's legal team has anticipated that Mueller will request an interview with Trump at some point, a possibility that the special counsel's office and Trump's lawyers have have declined to comment about. "Certainly I'll see what happens, but when they have no collusion and nobody has found any collusion at any level, it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview".
Without actually answering the question, Trump responded by insisting that "there has been no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians or Trump and Russians".
President Donald Trump said during a joint press conference with the Norwegian prime minister on Wednesday that he would "see what happens" if he were asked to interview with special counsel Robert Mueller.
