President Trump is downplaying the possibility that he'll take part in an interview with FBI investigators.

Sources confirmed to NBC News earlier this week that Mr. Trump's lawyers have been in discussions about a possible interview with members of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigative team looking into allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 election, including possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

"Fox News has been reporting and will continue to report that two people have pleaded guilty" of "lying to the FBI about matters Russia", and "the investigation continues, reportedly, into Trump team ties to Russians and potential money laundering and all the rest".

"Certainly I'll see what happens", Trump told reporters Wednesday in the White House when asked if he is open to meeting Mueller. Russian Federation & the world is laughing at the stupidity they are witnessing.

Mueller's team has already indicted four advisers from the Trump campaign, two of whom have pleaded guilty to lying about their contacts with Russian Federation. "And I respect that very much", she said. Almost half, 45 percent, said Democrats would take control of the House, compared to just 38 percent who said that outcome was not too likely or not likely at all. "But when they have no collusion - and nobody has found any collusion at any level - it seems unlikely that you would even have an interview", Trump said. "[Russia President Vladimir] Putin can't love that", Trump said. He said there had been "no collusion" and "no crime".

Trump has derided the dossier as a politically motivated hit job.

His comments marked a departure from last June, when Trump said he would be "100 percent" willing to testify about his interactions with former FBI Director James Comey.

In a tweet earlier Wednesday, Trump lashed out at Sen.

"Oh come on", she said. Richard Burr. Neither senator would comment on the meeting's objective.
