Trump Says He's Willing to Speak Under Oath to Mueller in Probe

Mr Trump said he "would like to do it as soon as possible. subject to my lawyers and all of that".

Discussions between Trump's personal lawyers and Mueller's team have been under way about the possibility of an interview with Trump and what the scope of it might be, according to a person familiar with the talks.

Trump's lawyers have been talking to the investigation team led by Mueller about an interview, and the form it might take, United States media reports said.The questioning could happen face-to-face, in writing, or it could be a combination of both.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he was willing to speak under oath with special counsel Robert Mueller as part of his investigation into the Trump campaign's alleged ties to Russia's election interference in 2016.

Egypt's army 'arrests Anan for incitement' over presidential bid
Anan announced his run on Saturday, a day after the current president, Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, confirmed his run at a second term. In a televised statement broadcast Saturday, Anan announced his decision to run in elections slated for March.

Sessions previously recused himself from the ongoing investigation, angering Trump who has reportedly fumed in private meetings with Sessions about the decision.

Sessions was the highest-ranking Trump administration official and first Cabinet member known to have been questioned by Mueller's team.

Mr Mueller's interest in Mr Sessions also might include what he knows about any attempts by Mr Trump to obstruct the Russian Federation investigation.

Sessions had a key role in the May 9, 2017 firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, whose pursuit of the Russian Federation meddling case angered Trump. "When they have no collusion", he said two weeks ago, "it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview".

Obviously this is the attitude we need to show in the next game [at home to Brighton and Hove Albion] - it's massive for us. The idea is to win games and be consistent and have the facility to fight for the top four", Pochettino added.

But Trump has since said he was thinking of "this Russian Federation thing" when he fired Comey.

"I'm looking forward to it, actually", Mr Trump, speaking to reporters at the White House, said of an interview with Mr Mueller. Cobb also clarified if the special counsel does call upon Trump, his attorney would be there to guide him through the meeting.

He said he's concerned that Mueller will end his probe with a "whimper", going after "low-hanging fruit" on matters "not directly related to the thrust of the investigation".

USA intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian Federation attempted to interfere in the 2016 presidential election to the benefit of Republican candidate Trump and to the detriment of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
