Donald Trump has agreed to speak to Russian investigation special counsel Robert Mueller and has said that he would agree to do so under oath.

Mr. Trump, earlier, had hinted that it "seems unlikely" that he would allow Mr. Mueller to "interview" him.

"I am not at all concerned", Mr Trump told reporters at the White House when asked about the development involving Mr Sessions. Ms. Sanders said Mr. Trump wants the controversy to come to an end.

The president suggested he could be investigated for obstruction of justice as part of the Russian Federation investigation because he was "fighting back" and reiterated there was "no collusion" between his campaign and Moscow.

The president's statements suggest that he sees an investigation of possible obstruction of justice as an unfair attack on his attempts by him or others to mount a defense.

This was as a report said the president himself could face an interview request within weeks.

Trump added that a sit-down would be "subject to my lawyers".

The White House initially said the firing was based on the Justice Department's recommendation and cited as justification a memo that faulted Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Mr Mueller's office also interviewed former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey shortly after Mr Trump fired him in May.

When asked if he'd sit for questioning, Trump told reporters: "I'm looking forward to it", adding he would do it "under oath".

Former chief White House strategist Steve Bannon is expected to meet with Mueller's team this month.

Mueller has quietly moved closer to those around Trump by interviewing Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former FBI Director James Comey in recent weeks, officials said. Comey later told congressional lawmakers who are conducting separate Russian Federation investigations that he did not oblige the president's request for loyalty nor his suggestion that the FBI should "let go" of the Flynn case.

'Apparently it was not clear to Flynn that this was about his personal conduct, ' another said, 'So he didn't think of bringing his own lawyer'.

It was at that ceremony on January 22 in the Blue Room of the White House where Comey, as he later told a friend, tried to blend into the curtains to avoid notice by the President. "Only then could you seek to interview the president, when you have most of what you need, because you can't go back for another round", a commentator said. "You do sort of looking at that and wonder what's going on". Sessions had asked FBI Director Christopher Wray to make a fresh start within the senior ranks of the FBI, prompting Wray to warn at one point that he would resign if pressured to do so, according to a person familiar with the matter.
