Trump instructed lawyer to induce AG to remain on Russian Federation case

Trump 'Unlikely' to Meet Mueller, Backpedals on Previous Commitment Trump instructed lawyer to induce AG to remain on Russian Federation case

Earlier this week the U.S. media reported that Mr Trump's lawyers were in talks with the Mueller investigation to set a date for an interview.

"It seems unlikely that you would even have an interview", he added.

Trump, who was asked if he would be willing to be interviewed, or would set any terms and conditions, went on to criticise the way in which the Federal Bureau of Investigation interviewed his old rival Hillary Clinton about her use of a private email server as secretary of state. "There is collusion but it's really with the Democrats and the Russians, far more than it is with the Republicans and the Russians". If the report provides evidence of criminal activity by top Trump campaign staff or potentially by the president himself - who has denied all wrongdoing - Congress could come under intense pressure to mount a prosecution. "Everybody knows it, every committee". "I will say this: I am for massive oil and gas and everything else and a lot of energy".

But the President's lawyers have in recent weeks prepared for the likelihood that Mueller will seek an interview with the President, considering how to respond to such a request.

Mueller's investigation, as well as several House and Senate probes into Russia's election meddling, are still ongoing and have yielded no conclusive results.

"Big Little Lies" Absolutely Dominated At The Golden Globes Because Duh
I do believe and I hope that we can elicit change through the stories we tell and the way we tell them. "Let's keep the conversation alive".


Trump has repeatedly attacked the probe, and has falsely asserted that it has been proven that there was no collusion between Team Trump and Vladimir Putin's Russian Federation, including in a tweet on Wednesday. Putin can't love that.

"But Hillary was not for a strong military and Hillary, my opponent was for windmills and she was for other types of energy that don't have the same capacities at this moment, certainly".

Trump called that decision "unfair".

"It's an agreement that I have no problem with but I had a problem with the agreement that they signed because, as usual, they made a bad deal", he said.

Trump paid tribute to Norway's use of hydropower, adding: "I wish we'd do some of that". We could have been very closed and it would have taken years. The President used the bipartisan meeting before television cameras to express his eagerness to tackle comprehensive immigration reform after agreeing to a legislative fix on DACA - signaling a break with his hard-line position on illegal immigration. "Any solution has to include the wall because, without the wall, it all doesn't work", he said. "Welcome back to the studio", he told journalists.
