Trump 'unlikely' to accept Mueller's Russia interview

Not Released Scarborough has regularly clashed with the commander-in-chief since he took office

The poll by Politico/Morning Consult, published on Wednesday, found that 48 percent of voters believe it is either very or somewhat likely that the usa president will be cleared in the ongoing Russia-related investigation, while 37 percent think it is not too likely or not at all likely that he will be exonerated.

Standing alongside Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, Trump called special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation a "Democratic hoax" and a "phony cloud" over his administration.

While discussions are underway about President Donald Trump possibly speaking with special counsel Robert Mueller's team, FBI investigators have not so far requested an interview with Vice President Mike Pence, a person familiar with the matter said. Asked if that meant Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner was no longer of interest to the committee, Grassley said, "no, not at all". They have also discussed the obligation of Mueller's team to demonstrate that it could not obtain the information it seeks without interviewing the President. Both have pleaded guilty in plea deals and are cooperating with Mueller.

Trump appears to be laying the groundwork to refuse the interview based on some sort of dubious legal argument, as well as his own false sense of indignation at even being asked. Most notorious was top Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok, who was caught sending hundreds of anti-Trump text messages to Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page, who also worked for Mueller.

He criticized the FBI's handling of its 2016 interview with Clinton, who was then a presidential candidate under investigation for her use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.

The president implied he'd accept anything Congress decides when it comes to immigration reforms. One way to do that, some believe, would be to have the President respond to questions in some form.

Trump also blasted Feinstein on Twitter Wednesday, calling her "sneaky", and said her move to release the transcript was "possibly illegal".

'We'll see what happens. I don't see a change, though.

"When they have no collusion, and nobody has found any collusion at any level, it seems unlikely you'd even have an interview", Trump pointed out. "We haven't closed any doors", the source said.

Trump had said he fired FBI director James Comey previous year in part because of his earlier investigation into Russian Federation and the 2016 election. Trump denies it. Thus began another chapter in the Russian Investigation: obstruction of justice.

"My positions are going to be what people in this room come up with", he said.

"We're going to continue to be fully cooperative with the special counsel as we have been".

The president himself is one of the Americans who anticipates the Russian Federation probe will exonerate him, although it's unlikely he participated in the poll himself.

Still, friends and allies caution Trump should think twice about talking. "And it's getting worse, and not a single person who works for him doesn't know he has early signs of dementia".

Feinstein said that she was trying to set the record straight after speculation about Simpson's interview.

Trump repeatedly dodged whether he would submit to an interview with Mueller by citing his claim there was no collusion during the 2016 presidential election.
