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


A Politico/Morning Consult poll found 48 percent of respondents said special counsel Robert Mueller will exonerate Trump in 2018 while just 37 percent said it was not too likely or not at all likely Trump will be cleared of any wrongdoing related to Russian interference.

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.

The investigation has two spearheads: special counsel Robert Mueller, operating under the aegis of the justice department (executive branch); and congressional committees (legislative branch).

The single greatest Witch Hunt in American history continues.

The FBI is investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election and whether the Trump campaign colluded with the foreign adversary.

A plurality of voters also think Mueller will clear members of the president's family, though by a closer margin than compared to Trump himself.

Thank you for your feedback.

At Wednesday's joint press conference with the Norwegian prime minister, Erna Solberg, Trump again protested his innocence with a defence that included the unexpected argument that his defeated election rival, Hillary Clinton, would have played into Russia's hands by favouring windmills.

Trump paid tribute to Norway's use of hydropower, adding: "I wish we'd do some of that".

Trump said "we'll see what happens" when asked if he would provide an interview to Mueller's team.

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 has been no official request by Mueller's office to interview the president yet, but Trump's lawyers are anticipating that Mueller may request information from Trump before winding down the investigation into Russia's attempted meddling in the 2016 election.

The 71-year-old president has strenuously denied that his campaign worked with Russian Federation to undermine the campaign of Trump's rival Hillary Clinton.

The comments come amid reports that Trump's legal team is preparing a response to a possible interview request from Mueller's team.

Facing a rightwing backlash over his apparent willingness to accept a path to citizenship for Dreamers, Trump denied if he might sign an immigration deal that does not include funding for a border wall. "Without the wall, it all doesn't work", he insisted.
