Amid reports that special counsel Robert Mueller will soon seek to question President Trump as part of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, Trump on Wednesday called such an interview "unlikely". During a news conference in June, Trump said he was "100 percent" willing to testify under oath that former FBI Director James Comey lied during his testimony to Congress when he said that Trump asked him to quash an active investigation into one of his associates in February of a year ago, weeks after the president asked his former FBI director to pledge personal loyalty.

A spokesman for the special counsel's office declined to comment on the possibility of a Pence interview.

Trump called the investigation a "phony cloud" over his administration.

"It has hurt our government". "It was a Democrat hoax".

The White House said in advance of the meetings that Trump and Solberg would discuss regional and global security issues with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, including the coalition aligned against the Islamic State group, along with economic issues and trade.

"Our position has always been that if asked we'll cooperate", the source said. He said he'd be "glad to" speak to Mueller about it.

Trump, meanwhile, has repeatedly derided the Mueller probe as the greatest "witch hunt" in the country's political history and denied any collusion took place. "I think that if there's credible information that Ivanka Trump had contact with any participants in that meeting, at the time of the meeting, that she should be brought in", Schiff said.

"Working with countries, whether its Russian Federation or China or India, or any of the countries that surround this world and encompass this world, is a very good thing".

The dodge was a marked change from June, when Trump defended his firing of FBI Director James Comey, denying that it was related to his handling of the Russian Federation investigation, and said he would "100 percent" be willing to give a sworn statement to Mueller.

The material was not classified and Feinstein on Wednesday said that she did not do anything illegal.
