Interview with Mueller 'unlikely': Trump

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".

Donald Trump has reiterated that there has been no collusion between his team and Moscow.

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.

At Wednesday's joint press conference with the Norwegian prime minister, Erna Solberg, Trump again protested his innocence with a defence that included the unexpected argument that his defeated election rival, Hillary Clinton, would have played into Russia's hands by favouring windmills. Russian Federation and the world is laughing at the stupidity they are witnessing.

Democrats have claimed the dossier to be a roadmap to alleged collusion and corruption by Trump and his officials, while Republicans insist that it is full of unverified claims that the Federal Bureau of Investigation might have used to improperly secure a warrant to spy on Trump's campaign and transition. "And I respect that very much", she said. "Republicans should finally take control!" the commander-in-chief wrote.

"When they have no collusion, and nobody has found any collusion at any level, it seems unlikely you'd even have an interview", Trump pointed out.

Trump, asked Wednesday about his comments, said that any immigration deal "has got to include the wall". The president called the move "a disgrace", but the information wasn't classified and Feinstein didn't need authorization to release it. "[Russia President Vladimir] Putin can't love that", Trump said. Her staff helped conduct the interview with Simpson, who had also asked for the interview to be released.

"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".

In a tweet earlier Wednesday, Trump lashed out at Sen.
