Russian Federation probe is 'Democrat hoax'; won't commit to meet Mueller

US President Donald Trump speaks during a joint news conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg in the East Room of the White House in Washington. Africans woke up on Friday Jan. 12 2018

News reported on Monday that President Donald Trump's lawyers are talking with FBI investigators about a potential interview between Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team and the president, and even looking for ways to possibly avoid it happening altogether.

Addressing reporters during a press availability at the White House yesterday afternoon, President Donald Trump refused to say definitively whether he would sit down for an interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller if a request was made. "But when they have no collusion - and nobody has found any collusion at any level - it seems unlikely that you would even have an interview", Trump said.

Responding to a question on USA desire to improve the relationship with other countries, President Donald Trump has said that working with countries like India, Russia and China is a good, not bad thing.

Mr Trump's words differed from what he said at a news conference in June, shortly after fired FBI Director James Comey had told Congress that Mr Trump asked him for a pledge of loyalty.

"And, you know, you can talk all you want about Russian Federation, which was all a - you know, fake news, fabricated deal - to try and make up for the loss of the Democrats and the press plays right into it", said Trump.

Democrat Dianne Feinstein of California caused an uproar earlier this week by releasing the transcript of private conversations between congressional investigators and a political researcher who, on behalf of Democrats, hired a former British spy in 2016 to document any ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

This account was first disputed in early February of past year when the Washington Post reported that Flynn had discussed USA sanctions against Russian Federation with Kislyak and therefore what Pence told the American public had not been true.

Trump first insisted that he canned Comey on the recommendation of his Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General, only to then tell NBC's Lester Holt that he had the Russian Federation investigation on his mind. She released the transcript of Glenn Simpson's interview over the objections of the committee's Republican chairman, Iowa Sen.

Although Bannon was sacked from his White House position by Trump in August, he had been a close Trump associate since he joined the Trump campaign and helped the political novice defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

Others condemned the USA president's comments as inappropriate or racist.

Multiple media outlets reported this week that Trump's legal team is now in talks with Mueller about approaching a possible interview with Trump.

President Donald Trump on Thursday took to Twitter to question the future of his government's premier domestic surveillance tool ahead of a key vote, only to make a spectacular U-turn an hour later. Adding that he'll see "what happens", the president noted that they "have no collusion" to make the case that it won't be necessary.

It's also worth noting that the president's voluntary witness interview is still subject to the federal false statements statute, 18 U.S.C. Sec.

Lockheed Martin - the primary defense contractor for the fifth-generation F-35 fighter - declined to comment on whether a F-52 aircraft is in development but the company has never publicly mentioned plans for an aircraft by that name. Mark Warner, D-Va., have worked closely together as panel staff has quietly interviewed more than 100 witnesses.

"I feel very strongly about the environment".

In October, Mr Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and his business associate Rick Gates were accused of conspiring to defraud the United States in dealings with Ukraine.

Democratic Senator from California Dianne Feinstein. In the end, much depends on the course Mueller takes and whether the two sides can reach a deal or end up having a lengthy legal fight to decide the issue.
