Trump says ‘it seems unlikely’ that special counsel Robert Mueller would interview him for the Russia probe ‘because nobody’s found any collusion at any level’

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he doesn’t see why he’d be asked for an interview from special counsel Robert Mueller because investigators have not found any evidence of collusion between his campaign and Russia.

Trump signaled that he’d be open to it but did not have any reason to think he’d be called in for questioning.

‘We’ll see what happens. Certainly I’ll see what happens. But when they have no collusion and nobody’s found any collusion at any level it seems unlikely that you’d even have an interview,’ he said at a news conference.

Trump made an example of Hillary Clinton, his former political opponent, who was not placed under oath when she was interviewed by the FBI in the summer of 2016 in her email case.

‘They didn’t take notes. They didn’t record, it was done on the Fourth of July weekend. That’s perhaps ridiculous, a lot of people looked on that as being a very serious breach and it really was,’ he said.

The president punted to his lawyers to decide what he should do.

‘I’ll speak to attorneys, I can only say this, there was absolutely no collusion,’ the president stated.

Trump said the allegations have been a ‘phony cloud’ over his administration since he took office.

‘It has hurt our government. It does hurt our government. 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 have such a tremendous advantage in the Electoral College,’ he said.

‘But it has been determined that there is no collusion by virtually everybody so we’ll see what happens.’

Mueller and his team of investigators have reportedly said they want to interview President Trump in person as they move forward with the Russia probe – and Trump’s lawyers are said to be reaching out for ways to protect the president by limiting the inquiry.

It has long been understood that investigators would seek answers from the man who presided over the campaign and White House that has been probed over issues ranging from any collusion to possible obstruction of justice and other matters.
