Trump on prospect of meeting with Mueller: 'It seems unlikely'

President Donald Trump on Wednesday appeared to back off a commitment to meet investigators looking into Russia's role in the 2016 USA election, saying an interview was "unlikely" to take place.

But the President's lawyers have in recent weeks prepared for the likelihood that Mueller will seek an interview with the President, considering how to respond to such a request.

A source with knowledge of the meeting, which occurred last month, said that it was not the first instance in which Mueller expressed a desire to meet with Trump as he continues to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and potential collusion with the Trump campaign.

Trump had said he fired FBI director James Comey previous year in part because of his earlier investigation into Russian Federation and the 2016 election.

He continued, "When you talk about interviews, Hillary Clinton had an interview where she wasn't sworn in, she wasn't given the oath, they didn't take notes, they didn't record".

And in a odd attempt to somehow prove he is independent of Russian Federation and President Putin, Trump told reporters, "I am for massive oil and gas and everything else.Putin can't love that".

"It's a Democrat hoax that was brought up as an excuse for losing an election", the President said. "And I respect that very much", she said. "It has been determined there was no collusion".

Mueller's investigation, as well as several House and Senate probes into Russia's election meddling, are still ongoing and have yielded no conclusive results. Mueller and his investigators could use any statements they consider misleading or false against him.

"The witch hunt continues", Mr. Trump added, making clear his disdain for the investigation, which has resulted in a guilty plea against his former National Security Adviser for not telling the truth about contacts with Russian Federation, and an indictment against his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort. Manafort and Gates pleaded not guilty to 12 counts including money laundering, tax fraud, failing to register as foreign agents, and conspiracy against the US.

"I mean, certainly, I'll see what happens", he said.

Trump had previously said he would be "100 percent" willing to meet Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

"It seems unlikely that you would even have an interview", he added.
