'Seems unlikely' I'll need to speak with Mueller

Special counsel Robert Mueller has added a prosecutor who specializes in cyber crimes to his team investigating Russia's interference in the election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

Four former Trump campaign members have already been charged in connection with Mr Mueller's probe, though none of the charges specifically mentioned collusion.

"We'll see what happens", Mr. Trump said, arguing that if there is no evidence of collusion, "it seems unlikely that you would even have an interview".

As far as any potential interview with Mueller, Trump left things vague, saying "certainly, we'll see what happens" while intimating that it might not be necessary because the collusion is unsubstantiated.

"There has been no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians or Trump and Russians", Trump said during a press conference Wednesday at the White House.

Mueller and his team are investigating whether Russian Federation and Trump's Republican campaign co-ordinated to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election and whether Trump worked to obstruct an FBI investigation into his aides.

President Trump said there is "no collusion" on Wednesday.

The remarks mark a turning point from Trump's statement last June, when he said that he would be "100%" willing to testify under oath about his conversations with Comey.

"I've been in office for eleven months now, and for eleven months, they've had this phony cloud over this administration, over our government", he added.

"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.

The Department of Justice, headed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, reopened the investigation on January 4. He proceeded to say the words "no collusion" several times more, bringing up Hillary Clinton, his Democratic opponent in the 2016 election, and insisting that the Russian Federation investigation is "a Democratic hoax" created to deflect from their 2016 White House loss. "It has been determined there was no collusion".

The special counsel's team of investigators has expressed interest in speaking with Trump, but no details have been worked out.
