Trump 'Unlikely' to Meet Mueller, Backpedals on Previous Commitment

Share

President Donald Trump says that it "seems unlikely" that he'd give an interview in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into potential coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday morning again labeled the probe into potential coordination between his associates and Russian Federation the "single greatest witch hunt" in U.S. history.

"I'll speak to attorneys", Mr. Trump told reporters in the East Room during a news conference with Prime Minister Erna Solberg of Norway, when asked whether he would speak with Mr. Mueller without preconditions.

Senate Democrats released an extensive report on Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election, saying that it fit into a almost two-decade pattern of meddling with governments around the world. Because of the secrecy surrounding grand jury investigations, we don't know exactly what Mueller has found. Trump may repeat this denial as frequently as he likes (as he did again Wednesday on Twitter), but the grand jury is still out on the question of collusion (or, more accurately, criminal conspiracy).

His comments marked a departure from last June, when Trump said he would be "100 percent" willing to testify about his interactions with former FBI Director James Comey.

"If I were his lawyer, I'd say, 'Keep your mouth shut and just talk to me or you'll end up like Bill Clinton, '" Jarrett said on "Lou Dobbs Tonight".

Republicans who spent the early months of 2017 working with Democrats on investigations into Russian interference in US elections have pivoted as the new year begins and midterm elections loom, leaving the conclusions of those congressional probes in doubt.

The tweet also continues Trump's public criticism of Clinton.

Trump announced a year ago his intention to pull the US out of the climate pact and the president has repeatedly expressed skepticism about climate change science, calling global warming a "hoax" created by the Chinese to damage American industry. "Russia & the world is laughing at the stupidity they are witnessing". Trump's comments Wednesday suggest he might not agree to sit down with prosecutors voluntarily.

Schumer continued, "Here is the president of the United States imploring his party to take control of the investigation".

Mr. Calabresi, who once clerked for conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, said Congress is exactly where charges against a sitting president should be debated. I suppose it's also technically possible that the F-52 is such a super-secret new fighter that we've never heard of it before now, although I'm not convinced that Norway would be the number-one market for that kind of tech. Mueller also extracted a plea deal from Flynn, but again not for acts related to Russian Federation collusion but for misleading federal authorities.

Democrats and Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee are all but certain to issue separate, bipartisan reports that will be believed by members of their own parties. Trump usually takes two questions from USA journalists when he has a joint news conference with a foreign head of state.

Grassley said in an angry news release on Tuesday that he was "confounded" by the release and argued that it could undermine attempts to get additional witnesses.
