Trump-Russia inquiry: President says he is unlikely to be interviewed
US President Donald Trump has said it is “unlikely” he will be interviewed by Robert Mueller – the man investigating possible ties between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia.
There was no collusion, Mr Trump said, adding: “I’ll see what happens.”
In June 2017, Mr Trump said he would “100%” be interviewed under oath.
He has consistently denied that his campaign worked with Russia to undermine his opponent Hillary Clinton, calling the accusations a “witch hunt”.
Earlier this week the US media reported that Mr Trump’s lawyers were in talks with the Mueller investigation to set a date for an interview.

“When they have no collusion – and nobody has found any collusion at any level – it seems unlikely that you would even have an interview,” Mr Trump told reporters on Wednesday.
