Trump attorney: I will decide if Trump sits for interview with Mueller

Trump attorney: I will decide if Trump sits for interview with Mueller Trump attorney: I will decide if Trump sits for interview with Mueller

"I've said it before, and I am saying it again: firing the Special Counsel is a red line that the President can not cross", Warner said in a statement reacting to a bombshell report by The New York Times that Trump attempted to fire Mueller last summer.

Responding to Trump's comments later Wednesday, White House lawyer Ty Cobb said, "While Mr. Trump was speaking hurriedly before departing for Davos, he remains committed to continued complete cooperation with the OSC and is looking forward to speaking with Mr. Mueller". Comey himself has spoken with Mueller's team and turned over memos that documented the unusual contacts - but Mueller will likely want to hear the president's side of the story. But even if Mr Trump is not interviewed by Mr Mueller's team under oath, it would still be a crime for him to lie to federal agents, said Mr Andrew Wright, a former associate counsel to President Barack Obama.

Mr. Mueller's office also interviewed former FBI Director James Comey shortly after Mr. Trump fired Mr. Comey in May 2017, a person familiar with the matter has told Reuters.

When asked by reporters late Wednesday about being questioned by Robert Mueller, the president said he's "looking forward to it, actually".

Mueller's investigation into the Russian election interference has reached into Trump's Cabinet, with the interview last week of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak while Sessions was a USA senator and a Trump campaign advocate, and later played a role in Comey's firing.

Mueller learned about this incident as he interviewed current and former White House officials in recent months, so presumably he's added attempting to fire him to the long list of times Trump may have obstructed justice.

Stephen Curry hits 14000 career points versus Timberwolves
The Timberwolves are not going to win this game, but they should be able to keep the game close , and under double digits. Towns, widely regarded as a future National Basketball Association superstar, believes his team is on the right track.

"Yesterday, they were talking about two or three weeks", he said. When "you fight back", he said, it is interpreted as obstruction. I mean, I've been reading about it from you people. Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts and is cooperating with Mueller's investigation.

The great Russian Federation investigation has overshadowed and imperilled the Trump Presidency since its earliest days.

The key to a legitimate Russian Federation investigation has always been Republicans not named Donald Trump.

Asked why Trump doesn't call bluffs or accept resignations when backed into a corner by his aides, one Republican close to the White House replied: "Because it looks like a sign of weakness and he knows that".

Mueller is expected to ask about collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation - which Trump denies. He has been involved in almost every key decision the President has made - like the firing of former FBI Director James Comey - that was being scrutinized by Mueller.

The report states that Trump began to cite numerous conflicts of interest that would have precluded Mueller from overseeing the investigation. "But I think he's going to be fair", Trump told the Times' Michael Schmidt last December.
