There has been no official request by Mueller's office to interview the president yet, but Trump's lawyers are anticipating that Mueller may request information from Trump before winding down the investigation into Russia's attempted meddling in the 2016 election.
The White House has repeatedly said it will fully cooperate with the investigation, though Trump has also repeatedly called it nothing more than a "witch hunt".
President Donald Trump said Wednesday it "seems unlikely" that he'll have to meet with Special Counsel Robert Mueller regarding the ongoing investigation into allegations that Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 election, repeatedly adding that there was "no collusion".
President Trump speaks during a news conference with Prime Minister Erna Solberg of Norway in the East Room at the White House on Wednesday. "When they have no collusion, and nobody has found any collusion, at any level, it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview".
"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", he said.
The comments implied a U-turn from last June when the president said he would be "100 per cent" willing to testify under oath about his interactions with James Comey, whom he fired as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
"I'll see what happens" in regards to offering testimony to special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, he said.
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 comments come amid reports that Trump's legal team is preparing a response to a possible interview request from Mueller's team.
"I'll see what happens".
He also complained that when former 2016 election rival Hillary Clinton was interviewed by agents as part of the email probe, she was not under oath.
Asked whether he would be willing to meet special counsel Robert Mueller, Trump deflected the question by repeatedly denying that investigators had found any evidence of collusion between his campaign team and Russian Federation.
Once again on Wednesday Trump did not criticise Russia's President Vladimir Putin directly, but he did contend that he is not pursuing policies calculated to please the Kremlin. Comey said in a statement last summer that although Clinton's behavior had been "extremely careless", the bureau would not recommend criminal charges be brought against her.
Facing a rightwing backlash over his apparent willingness to accept a path to citizenship for Dreamers, Trump denied if he might sign an immigration deal that does not include funding for a border wall. "So we could conceivably go back in". "Without the wall, it all doesn't work", he insisted.
