A year ago when he was asked if he would testify under oath as part of Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the election, Trump said yes "one hundred percent".

"Even if you and everyone who worked for you is innocent - which some of them have already admitted they are not - that witch hunt was worse than this one", Kimmel assured Trump.

"It was someone like us who made a decision to pick up the phone and report something", Simpson said.

"Certainly I'll see what happens", he said during a news conference following a bilateral meeting with Norway's prime minister, Erna Solberg.

An interview request from Mueller would lead to negotiations with Trump lawyers about the conditions, with Trump's team pushing for limiting the scope of questions or providing answers in writing, The Hill reported.

Leonnig reports Trump is eager to sit down with Mueller's team in an effort to clear his name, but his lawyers are understandably more cautious.

Trump signaled that he would be open to it but said he did not have any reason to think he'd be called in for questioning.

"It has hurt our government". "It was a Democrat hoax". "'We are going to take a strong look at our country's libel laws, so that when somebody says something that is false and defamatory about someone, that person will have meaningful recourse in our courts, ' Mr. Trump said during a public portion of a cabinet meeting in the White House".

Ms. Alcindor, who is Haitian-American, also quoted Mr. Altidor as saying: "Haitians fought along USA soldiers in the Revolutionary War, and we continue to be great contributors to American society".

Democrats on Capitol Hill have redoubled their efforts to draw attention to broad issues of election security and what they characterize as unsafe inaction by Republicans, who control all levels of government in Washington before this year's midterms.

In a separate tweet, Mr Trump accused Democratic senator Dianne Feinstein of being "underhanded and a disgrace" for disclosing details of a dossier of allegations about his ties to Russian Federation during the presidential campaign.

Mueller's team has interviewed a number of Trump aides, including Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and former chief of staff Reince Priebus.

Feinstein unilaterally released a lengthy transcript of Simpson's testimony without telling the majority Republican bloc on the Judiciary Committee. Chuck Grassley. She is the top Democrat on the panel.

'But again, I'll speak to attorneys, I can only say this, there was absolutely no collusion, ' the president stated. "Must have tough Primary!"

Comey was overseeing the Russian Federation probe at the time. "And I respect that very much and that this is an issue for American politics", she said.

Mr Trump has derided the dossier as a politically motivated hit job. Florida Rep. Tom Rooney, one of several Republicans leading the intelligence committee probe, has said it's time for the investigation to wind down.

Mueller has also tentatively set a trial date in May for former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, who was indicted in October on charges, including money-laundering conspiracy, related to his lobbying work on behalf of a Russia-friendly Ukrainian political party. In November, after speaking with Mr. Putin, Mr. Trump said he believed that the Russian leader was honest in his denials of interfering with the 2016 race.
