Seems unlikely interview with Mueller would happen: Trump

Press Trust of India  |  Washington 

today said it "seems unlikely" that he would have an interview with who is investigating the potential links between the Trump campaign and in the 2016 US presidential

Mueller, a former highly decorated FBI director, has already interviewed several of the close aides and family members of Trump over the issue.

In the last one week, reports have appeared in the US media that Mueller was seeking an interview with Trump as part of his investigation.

Trump's attorneys were said to have asked whether it could be in the written format.

At a joint conference with Prime Minister, Norway, Erna Solberg, Trump hinted that the interview was unlikely to happen.

"We'll see what happens. I mean, certainly I'll see what happens. But when they have no collusion and nobody's found any collusion at any level, it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview," Trump said.

He termed the allegations as a "Democratic hoax brought up as an excuse for losing an election".

"The Democrats should have won, because they have such a tremendous advantage in the Electoral College," the US said.

He denied any coordination between the Trump Campaign and during the presidential

"It has been determined that there's been no collusion," Trump said.

The US said he will speak to his attorneys regarding the issue.

He ridiculed Hillary Clinton, her opponent in the elections, for being interviewed by the FBI in the email case in 2016.

"And when you talk about interviews, had an interview where she wasn't sworn in. She wasn't given the oath. They didn't take notes. They didn't record. It was done on the weekend. That is perhaps ridiculous, and a lot of people looked upon that as being a very serious breach. And it really was," Trump said.

"There is collusion, but it's really with the Democrats and the Russians far more than it is with the Republicans and the Russians. So the witch hunt continues," he said.
