During an interview with The Wall Street Journal on Thursday, President Donald Trump doubled down on his assertion that his campaign did not collude with Russian Federation, that there was "no crime" and "no obstruction".

In June 2017, Mr Trump said he would "100%" be interviewed under oath.

To make better sense of the story and understand what it might mean for Mueller's investigation, I talked this morning with Just Security 's Andy Wright, who before joining the faculty of Savannah Law School worked as associate counsel in the White House Counsel's Office during the Obama administration.

Trump lawyer John Dowd declined to comment on his communications with the special counsel's office. It's unclear when Pence learned about Flynn's deceit. The Democrats' questioners wanted answers about how the investigation took shape and what it found.

"I think that if there's credible information that Ivanka Trump had contact with any participants in that meeting, at the time of the meeting, that she should be brought in", Schiff said. "It's all fake news".

Trump, while replying to questions at his news conference, appeared to discount the possibility of being interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller in the ongoing probe to determine if there was any "collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation in the run-up to the presidential election.

Bannon drew the ire of the White House last week when The Guardian revealed that author Michael Wolff quoted him in his book "Fire and Fury" as saying a Trump Tower meeting involving Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign was "unpatriotic" and perhaps "treasonous".

At first, the White House said Trump's decision was based entirely on the recommendation of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who had penned a memo about Comey, at Trump's request, the day after meeting with Trump to discuss his performance. Trump usually takes two questions from US journalists when he has a joint news conference with a foreign head of state.

"President Donald Trump announced on Wednesday that the first of 52 "F-52 and F-35" fighter jets have been delivered to Norway - proudly touting the "$10 billion" sale of military equipment to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally during a news conference with the Norwegian prime minister.

And what was Trump asked about? "But it is unclear whether their investigation will conclude soon enough to serve as a cautionary lesson for future election cycles, which experts believe will be as susceptible to foreign meddling as the 2016 presidential contest was".

Passing on to Congress criminal charges such as money laundering - and possibly triggering impeachment proceedings - would be driven by Mr. Mueller's desire to sidestep the debate over whether a special counsel even has the authority to bring charges directly against a sitting president, the nation's chief law enforcement officer, sources say.

Trump stuck to his familiar talking points in his answers to the questions, saying, "There has been no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians, or Trump and Russians".

As Trump mentioned on Wednesday, Norway plans to purchase up to 52 F-35s but the Norwegian government has authorized funding for only 40 aircraft to date, according to Lockheed Martin spokeswoman Carolyn Nelson. She said they are hurting prospects for a bipartisan agreement on immigration.

Trump called the investigation a "phony cloud" over his administration. Though Rosenstein was critical of Comey in his memo, he did not recommend Comey be fired.

Mueller's team told the White House last month that they are likely to request an interview with the president, the Washington Post has reported. "They have actual health care, and longer life expectancy", author Stephen King wrote on Twitter.
