Mueller adds cyber crimes prosecutor to Russian Federation probe team

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that it "seems unlikely" that he would give an interview in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into potential coordination between Russian Federation and his election campaign.

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

Democrats have claimed the dossier to be a roadmap to alleged collusion and corruption by Trump and his officials, while Republicans insist that it is full of unverified claims that the Federal Bureau of Investigation might have used to improperly secure a warrant to spy on Trump's campaign and transition.

The president's comments Wednesday mark a departure from his previously expressed willingness to meet with the special counsel.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that the president's lawyers are preparing for the possibility that Mueller's team will ask to conduct an interview with the president himself.

The special counsel and congressional committees investigating the matter have yet to reach a conclusion about whether any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation took place. The Democrats, Trump claimed, "all say there's no collusion".

The Russia investigation has hovered over the administration as Trump continues to try to tackle complex domestic issues, specifically immigration reform that both addresses the legal status of those covered by an Obama-era immigration policy allowing children brought to the United States illegally as children, as well as funding for his long-promised border wall.

SpaceX launched a classified, multibillion-dollar spy satellite for the USA government on Sunday ― and then something went wrong. In a statement, the Department of Defense said, "As a matter of policy we do not comment on classified missions".

Trump's words differed from what he said at a news conference in June a year ago, shortly after fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey had told US Congress that Trump asked him for a pledge of loyalty.

Asked at that June press conference whether he'd speak to Mueller, Trump told reporters he "would be glad to tell him exactly what I just told you".

"The president again calling the Russian Federation investigation 'a Democratic hoax.' It is not", Smith said.

President Trump is downplaying the possibility that he'll take part in an interview with FBI investigators. Almost half, 45 percent, said Democrats would take control of the House, compared to just 38 percent who said that outcome was not too likely or not likely at all. He said there had been "no collusion" and "no crime".

By far the greatest amount of pressure on the White House so far is coming from the special counsel, Robert Mueller, whose team of 17 prosecutors was authorized in May to investigate "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump" and related matters.

The material was not classified and Feinstein on Wednesday said that she did not do anything illegal.
