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

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". "So we'll see what happens", Trump added.

"It seems unlikely that you would even have an interview", he added. "It was a Democrat hoax".

President Donald Trump on Wednesday appeared to back off a commitment to meet investigators looking into Russia's role in the 2016 USA election, saying an interview was "unlikely" to take place.

"There was no collusion, everybody including the Dems knows there was no collusion, & yet on and on it goes", Trump tweeted.

But the president's legal team is considering a number of possible options for such an interview, including an in-person interview of Trump, written responses to questions submitted by Mueller's investigative team or an affidavit signed by the president stating his position on the case.

"I've been in office now for 11 months", he said. A Politico/Morning Consult poll released this week found that a plurality of respondents, 48 percent, believed that Trump would be exonerated by Mueller.


"I will say this, there is collusion but it's really with the Democrats and the Russians, far more than it is with the Republicans and the Russians", Trump said.

Often, Trump's denials of collusion came on Twitter, which you'll probably not be shocked to learn.

But on Wednesday, asked if he is open to meeting Mueller and whether he would set strict conditions, Trump told reporters at the White House: "We'll see what happens".

Trump's denials of collusion also don't address a more pressing concern: whether by firing Comey he tried to obstruct the Russian Federation investigation.
