President Donald Trump repeated his contention that there wasn't any collusion with Russian Federation, but he declined to say whether he would agree to a possible interview request from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian Federation meddling in last year's election.
"There is collusion, but it's with the Democrats and the Russians, not the Republicans", Trump said.
Pressed on the topic, Mr Trump said it "seems unlikely" that the interview would occur, given the lack of evidence to support claims of collusion.
His comments came amid news that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation was moving at a fast pace and sought an interview with Trump.
Mr Robert Mueller is said to be preparing to interview the President as part of his probe into the Trump campaign's possible ties to Russian Federation.
Mike Pettine is Packers' Defensive Coordinator
Packers now preparing to hire former Browns' HC Mike Pettine as their defensive coordinator, per league source. The team posted records of 7-9 and 3-13 under Pettine, and he was let go in favor of hiring Hue Jackson.
Trump's lawyers have previously stated their determination to cooperate with Mueller's requests.
At a press conference in the summer, Trump said he was "100%" willing to testify under oath about his conversations with James B. Comey, whom he fired as Federal Bureau of Investigation director in May.
The remarks mark a turning point from Trump's statement last June, when he said that he would be "100%" willing to testify under oath about his conversations with Comey. It's a Democrat hoax that was brought up as an excuse for losing an election that frankly the Democrats should have won because they had such a tremendous advantage in the electoral college.
The Department of Justice, headed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, reopened the investigation on January 4.
The Russia investigation has hovered over the administration as Trump continues to try to tackle complex domestic issues, specifically immigration reform that both addresses the legal status of those covered by an Obama-era immigration policy allowing children brought to the United States illegally as children, as well as funding for his long-promised border wall. "And I respect that very much", she said. "Certainly, I'll see what happens, but when they have no collusion, and nobody's found collusion, at any level, it seems unlikely that you would even have an interview".
