Trump ‘Looking Forward’ To Interview With Mueller
President Trump said Wednesday that he’s “looking forward” to meeting with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Trump also told reporters at the White House that he is willing to speak to Mueller under oath during an interview that he expects to take place within two or three weeks.
“I’m looking forward to it, actually,” Trump told reporters when asked whether he will meet with Mueller, a former FBI director tapped in May to investigate possible collusion involving the Trump campaign as well as obstruction of justice.
“There’s been no collusion whatsoever. There’s been no obstruction whatsoever, and I’m looking forward to it,” Trump said during the impromptu press gaggle.
“I would love to do it,” he continued moments later, adding: “I should say, subject to my lawyers.”
Earlier this month, Trump expressed skepticism that he would even need to meet with Mueller.
“When they have no collusion — and nobody’s found any collusion at any level — it seems unlikely that you’d even have an interview,” Trump said earlier this month.
Trump also said that he would speak under oath to Mueller, though he did so while taking a jab at Hillary Clinton.
“Did Hillary do it under oath?” he asked one reporter before asserting that Clinton did not testify under oath as part of the FBI’s email investigation.
“I would do it,” he said of testifying under oath.
