'Seems unlikely' I'll need to speak with Mueller

Mueller adds cyber crimes prosecutor to Russia probe team

President Donald Trump would not commit Wednesday to being interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller as part of the Russian Federation investigation and called the prospect "unlikely", despite saying a year ago that he would be willing to speak with him.

At a joint press conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, Trump stuck to his main talking point about the investigation, that "there is no collusion" between his campaign and Russian agents.

Asked again about a possible Mueller interview, Trump said, "I'll speak with attorneys".

Sources familiar with the matter previously told NBC News that Trump's legal team was preparing for the possibility off an interview with Mueller's team, including written responses to questions in lieu of a formal sit-down.

Mueller has been investigating whether anyone from Trump's team assisted with Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential campaign, but also whether Trump tried to obstruct justice by impeding the probe.

When Roberts asked Trump whether he would be open to meeting with Mueller "without condition" or only do so under strict limitations on the scope of questioning, Trump responded that because there was "no collusion", it would be "unlikely that you'd even have an interview".

Trump said he would "100 percent" be willing to share his version of the encounter with Comey under oath.

"I've been in office for eleven months now, and for eleven months, they've had this phony cloud over this administration, over our government", he added. "It was a Democratic hoax that was brought up as an excuse for losing an election".

During his press conference, Trump reiterated his claim that Democrats fabricated the Russian Federation controversy to distract from their loss to him in 2016. But it has been determined that there is no collusion and by virtually everybody. Mueller and his investigators could use any statements they consider misleading or false against him.

"I mean, certainly, I'll see what happens", he said. "When they have no collusion and nobody's found collusion at any level it seems unlikely that you'd have an interview".
