Trump reverses on prospect of Mueller interview

President Trump is downplaying the possibility that he'll take part in an interview with FBI investigators.

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.

In a separate tweet, Trump accused Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein of being "underhanded and a disgrace" for disclosing details of a dossier of allegations about his ties to Russian Federation during the presidential election campaign.

The prospect of an interview with the president has come up in recent discussions between Mueller's team and Trump lawyers, but no details have been worked out, including the scope of questions that the president would agree to answer if an interview were to actually take place, according to the person.

Norway Prime Minister Erna Solberg, who appeared with Trump at the joint press conference, seemed to back away from a question about whether she was "laughing at the Russian Federation investigation". Russian Federation & the world is laughing at the stupidity they are witnessing.

Trump 'Unlikely' to Meet Mueller, Backpedals on Previous Commitment

That first burst in March, the day that then-FBI Director James B. Comey first acknowledged that the bureau was looking at any collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian actors. "I will say this: I am for massive oil and gas and everything else and a lot of energy". Almost half, 45 percent, said Democrats would take control of the House, compared to just 38 percent who said that outcome was not too likely or not likely at all.

"When they have no collusion and nobody's found any collusion at any level, it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview", Trump said Wednesday during a joint news conference with the prime minister of Norway.

Watch Trump make those comments below, via Fox News. And as the top Democrat on the committee, she didn't need authorization from Grassley to release it. A Politico/Morning Consult poll released this week found that a plurality of respondents, 48 percent, believed that Trump would be exonerated by Mueller. Feinstein told reporters that she didn't tell Grassley beforehand, and "I owe him an apology and I will give him an apology as soon as I see him". He said there had been "no collusion" and "no crime".

Once again on Wednesday Trump did not criticise Russia's President Vladimir Putin directly, but he did contend that he is not pursuing policies calculated to please the Kremlin. Richard Burr. Neither senator would comment on the meeting's goal.
