Mueller adds cyber crimes prosecutor to Russian Federation probe team

Washington [U.S.A.] January 11 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump on Wednesday said it was "unlikely" that he will be required to give an interview in connection with the Russian collusion investigation. "When they have no collusion, and nobody has found any collusion, at any level, it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview".

"When they have no collusion...it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview", Trump said during a press conference at the White House Wednesday, during which he called the Russian Federation investigation a "Democratic hoax".

Trump's lawyers have previously stated their determination to cooperate with Mueller's requests.

Mueller has been investigating whether anyone from Trump's team assisted with Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential campaign, but also whether Trump tried to obstruct justice by impeding the probe. "[Russia President Vladimir] Putin can't love that", Trump said.

Trump said he would "100 percent" be willing to share his version of the encounter with Comey under oath.

As has become routine, Trump fervently denied Wednesday that any collusion took place and described such a suggestion as "a phony cloud" that has hung "over this administration and our government". It's a Democrat hoax that was brought up as an excuse for losing an election that frankly the Democrats should have won because they had such a tremendous advantage in the electoral college.

The Point: Trump is obsessed and irritated by the ongoing Russian Federation investigations and the questions he continues to get about them.

Trump also claimed that "virtually everybody" determined he didn't collude with the Russians. Mueller and his investigators could use any statements they consider misleading or false against him. So far, four individuals in Trump's orbit have been charged as part of Mueller's investigation - former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former campaign adviser and longtime Manafort associate Rick Gates, early foreign-policy adviser George Papadopoulos, and former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

"I can only say this, there was absolutely no collusion", the President said, again making the case that the investigation was damaging the United States.
