Donald Trump says Mueller interview 'unlikely'

Later, top Obama officials got intelligence reporting about contacts between retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, Trump's top national security aide, and Russia's then-ambassador to the U.S. As Flynn later admitted in court documents when he pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation that he and the ambassador discussed Flynn's request for Moscow not to retaliate against the punitive measures that President Barack Obama imposed in retaliation for the election interference.

When asked during a press conference whether he would sit for an interview with Mueller, Trump said, "We'll see what happens".

President Donald Trump created a firestorm on Thursday with his vulgar comments saying he preferred immigrants from Norway as opposed to Haiti and "s***hole countries" of Africa.

Mueller is also believed to be investigating whether Trump and his inner circle sought to obstruct justice, which has raised speculation that the president himself would be interviewed.

Ornstein added, however, that even if congressional Russia's probes falter on partisan lines, "The real test comes with whether the integrity of the Mueller investigation is protected and a bipartisan group of members [of Congress] make it clear that the president can't fire [Mueller] or close off the investigation". "It does hurt our government", he said.

"It was a Democrat hoax". He said of Mueller then: "I would be glad to tell him exactly what I told you". He said he'd be "glad to" speak to Mr Mueller about it.

"There was no collusion, everybody including the Dems knows there was no collusion, & yet on and on it goes", he tweeted.

Norwegians also have a life expectancy of 81.8 years on average, making them the 15th longest-living people in the world, according to the World Health Organization.

Trump, who has been faced with criticism from the Republican base over softening his stance, told a questioner that the Bill must include border security features, including funding for his pet project to build a wall along the Mexican border. He joined in August 2016 as chief executive with the backing of the Mercer family and after Trump secured the Republican nomination. The charge is denied both by Russian Federation and by the U.S. president.

Transcripts of Mr Simpson's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee were released by California Senator Dianne Feinstein.

Democrats pushed back, defending Feinstein and saying she was forced to act in the face of mounting Republican efforts to thwart and cut short multiple Russian Federation probes on Capitol Hill.

As 2018 has begun, only the Senate Intelligence Committee's investigation remains on bipartisan ground. Sen. Certainly, I'll see what happens.

"I think it would be valuable for her to testify and come before the committee", Schiff said.

Trump has derided the dossier as a politically motivated hit job.

Aides to the committee's leaders declined comment. That has angered Democrats, who say those probes are distractions from the Russian Federation investigations.

Trump says Friday: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

What is public record, so far, is that the Clinton campaign and DNC hired the firm through Marc Elias, a lawyer with the firm Perkins Coie, to conduct research on Trump and Russian Federation.

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.

Trump has often invoked Feinstein on the collusion issue. Asked about Trump's tweet, she brushed off the idea that the release had anything to do with her election.

Ronald Rotunda, who served as an adviser to independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr's in the probe of Mr. Clinton and also worked on the investigative team during Watergate, said that the legal concept of "scienter" could play a key role.
