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.
The US President has declined to commit to an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller who is leading an investigation into the alleged collusion between Trump and Russian Federation, a probe the current occupant of the White House has repeatedly called a "witch hunt".
The prospect of an interview with the president has come up in recent discussions between Mueller's team and Trump lawyers, but no details have been worked out, including the scope of questions that the president would agree to answer if an interview were to actually take place, according to the person.

"I will say this, there is collusion but it's really with the Democrats and the Russians, far more than it is with the Republicans and the Russians", Trump said.
Trump has often invoked Feinstein on the collusion issue. That has angered Democrats, who say those probes are distractions from the Russian Federation investigations.
Trump paid tribute to Norway's use of hydropower, adding: "I wish we'd do some of that".
