WASHINGTON /January 10, 2018 (AP)(STL.News) — President Donald Trump is playing down the possibility that he’d give an interview to investigators looking into any coordination between his presidential campaign and Russia. His reasoning is simple enough: With no collusion, there’s no reason to have an interview.
Trump made the remarks Wednesday during a news conference with Norway’s prime minister.
The special counsel’s investigators have expressed interest in speaking with Trump, but no details have been worked out. Trump’s lawyers have previously stated their determination to cooperate with the probe, which has already resulted in charges against four Trump campaign advisers.
Trump has long maintained there was no coordination between his campaign and Russia and that the investigation is nothing more than a “witch hunt.”
