President Trump has decided he will talk to Special Counsel Robert Mueller for his investigation into “Russian collusion” during the 2016 election, and Trump will be under oath.
The meeting could come as early as this month, some reports say.
Mueller’s questions for Trump apparently focus on Gen. Mike Flynn, and former FBI Director James Comey…
According to The Washington Post:
“President Trump said Wednesday he is “looking forward” to testifying before special counsel Robert S. Mueller III and that he would speak under oath.
“I would love to do it, and I would like to do it as soon as possible,” Trump said at the White House. “I would do it under oath, absolutely.”
The president suggested he was being investigated for obstruction of justice as part of the Russia investigation because he was “fighting back” and reiterated there was “no collusion” between his campaign and Moscow.
“Oh well, did he fight back?” Trump said, “You fight back, oh, it’s obstruction.”
Mueller’s team has told Trump’s lawyers they want to question the president about the firing of national security adviser Michael Flynn and FBI Director James B. Comey — they have also asked witnesses in recent weeks about Trump’s attempts to oust Attorney General Jeff Sessions.”
