By Daily Wire. President Donald Trump said Wednesday night that he is “looking forward” to being questioned by Special Counsel Robert Mueller — under oath — in the investigation into whether Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election.
“I’m looking forward to it, actually,” Trump said at the White House. As for the session would occur, Trump said, “I guess they’re talking about two or three weeks…. I’d like to do that as soon as possible.”
“But I’d love to do it,” he declared. Trump again insisted there has been no collusion — and no obstruction of justice in the May firing of FBI director James Comey. “Here is the story: There has been no collusion whatsoever. There is no obstruction whatsoever. And I am looking forward to it.”
During an exchange with reporters, Trump vowed to do the interview under oath — “subject to my lawyers.”
“I would do it under oath. I would do it,” he said, later adding, “I would do it under oath, yeah.” (Read more from “Trump Says He Would ‘Love to’ Answer Special Counsel Mueller’s Questions – Under One Condition” HERE)

His lawyers have been negotiating for weeks with Mr. Mueller’s team about the prospect of having him answer questions in the inquiry, including what topics would be covered. Mr. Trump said last year he would be willing to speak with Mr. Mueller, but he has more recently suggested that should not be necessary because the allegations being examined were baseless.
