Russian Federation inquiry: President says he's unlikely to be interviewed

"Never before in American history has so clear a threat to national security been so clearly ignored by a USA president", the Democrats' report charged.

Among the possible scenarios: whether the interview is merely a box to check to finish an investigation, as with Hillary Clinton's interview about the private email server; whether Mueller wants the President to speak as a witness to others; or whether it becomes a full examination of a target of the investigation.

"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 during a joint news conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg.

According to CNN, Trump has told friends he is willing to talk with Mueller to make the case there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation during the 2016 election. More alarmingly, Republicans in Congress are joining Trump and conservative media outlets in brutal attacks on the integrity of the FBI and the USA intelligence community, which are conducting the investigation.

A day after Comey's testimony, Trump said on June 9 that he was "100 percent" willing to talk under oath to Mueller.

What does the president mean when he urges his fellow Republicans to "finally take control" of the Russian Federation investigation?

The investigation has not yet requested to interview the president, but earlier this week U.S. media reported that Mr Mueller had told the president's lawyers he meant to seek an interview.

President Donald Trump is catching much deserved heat for his disparaging remarks about Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries during an immigration meeting earlier this week.

Trump's comments appear to be at odds with what he said during an interview last May with NBC's Lester Holt, which took place two days after Comey's dismissal. It's a Democrat hoax that was brought up as an excuse for losing an election that frankly the Democrats should have won because they have such a tremendous advantage in the electoral college. 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".

But Burr has indicated the panel is considering punting until later this year on the question of whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation, issuing instead a bipartisan report focused on election security as the 2018 midterms get underway.

The special counsel's team of investigators has expressed interest in speaking with Mr Trump, but no details have been worked out. Panel heads Sens. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Mark R. Warner (D-Va.) continue to cooperate as they interview witnesses.

"We found out recently, there were people in the Federal Bureau of Investigation plotting to bring the president down", as U.S. Sen.

The interview is set to be behind closed doors.

"With that being said, I have personally directed the fix to the unmasking process since taking office and today's vote is about foreign surveillance of foreign bad guys on foreign land".

According to the report, Trump's lawyers began their own internal discussions on the subject "shortly after the president's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was indicted in late October for money laundering in connection with his business dealings with Ukraine".

He also served as assistant counsel to Vice President Al Gore in the Clinton White House, where he managed responses to investigations conducted by Congress, the Justice Department, and Office of the Independent Counsel.
