TRUMP: Well, again, John, there has been no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians, or Trump and Russians.
That same day Trump resurfaced dubious claims about the investigation into former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state. Prior to this meeting with Trump, Solberg had a press conference with the Norwegian media, after which she made a decision to catch a few Pokemon during her brief time off.
The special counsel's team of investigators has expressed interest in speaking with Trump, but no details have been worked out.
To recap, Mueller's appointment as special counsel in May came with broad jurisdiction. "It was a Democrat hoax" he said.
U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, defended his handling of the Judiciary Committee's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, saying he hasn't talked with the White House or other Republicans about how to stifle the inquiry.
Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, referred Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence officer who compiled a dossier with allegations concerning President Trump and Russian Federation, to the Justice Department for investigation. Trump denied that, and said he'd be "100 percent" willing tell his version of events under oath.
Trump's testimony about the Comey and Flynn firings could be key for Mueller's investigation.
Trump has since backtracked on meeting with Mueller as the special counsel's investigation escalated dramatically in the intervening months.
"I wish we'd do some of that".
"If I could make one national security recommendation to the president it would be stop watching Judge Napolitano on Fox", Schiff said on CNN, referring to Andrew Napolitano, a Fox News analyst. "But when they have no collusion and nobodys found any collusion at any level, it seems unlikely that youd even have an interview", Trump said. Trump's lawyers have been making a pretense of cooperating with Mueller, but that pretense may have ended Wednesday.
-Norwegian relations, they also took questions at the end of the presser. Comey memorialized contemporaneously (took notes) on this dinner meeting and shared those notes with other Federal Bureau of Investigation officials. They didn't record. It was done on the 4th of July weekend. "And it really was".
Trump critics on Twitter celebrated the news as a sign that the probe is not shutting down anytime soon, perhaps failing to realize that Dickey was hired two months ago.
Trump then pivoted from his call for Republicans to wrest control of the investigations and attacked the FBI agents whose anti-Trump text messages were released by Congress late a year ago. Her staff helped conduct the interview with Simpson, who had also asked for the interview to be released.
