President Donald Trump said Friday that if he could be treated fairly he would "love to speak" to federal prosecutors investigating possible collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation, and he said one of his new lawyers, Rudy Giuliani, was still learning his facts.
"I would love to speak", he insisted.
Trump spoke with reporters before departing from the White House en route to Joint Base Andrews on Friday, answering a number of questions, including whether or not he's willing to be interviewed as part of the ongoing Russian Federation investigation.
But Trump concluded that he would only participate in a sit-down session if he believes 'that we're going to be treated fairly.
He added, "I can imagine some things that I would do differently but then I'd have to figure out, so what would I do then with the alternative lives that would spin out from that and would they be better or worse?"
Cobb did not personally represent the president, but he was a critical adviser, coordinating dealings with Mueller, functioning as a point person for document and interview requests and working closely with Trump's personal lawyers.
"There was no Collusion (it is a Hoax) and there is no Obstruction of Justice (that is a setup & trap)".
Trump's new lawyer, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, said any interview between Trump and Mueller must have parameters and can not last more than three hours. The questions reflected what the defense lawyers anticipated Trump would be asked, rather than verbatim queries that Mueller's team provided, the person said.More news: US accuses China of directing laser at its pilots

If Cohen paid Daniels without being reimbursed to protect Trump during the campaign, that would likely be an illegal campaign contribution; if Trump paid him back, it could be considered an unreported campaign loan; and "Giuliani suggesting it was funneled through the firm as legal fees", Larry Noble at the Campaign Legal Center tells the Post, "is evidence of an intent to hide the source, which could make it knowing and willful, which is criminal".
The president spoke to reporters on the south garden of the White Home and on the tarmac of Joint Base Andrews earlier than heading to ship remarks on the Nationwide Rifle Affiliation conference in Dallas, Texas.
"I'm not gonna answer that", Comey said a at March 2017 House intelligence committee hearing in response to the question of whether Trump himself was being investigated.
McCarthy on Friday said Mueller does have the power to file a subpoena, but that doesn't mean Trump would necessarily testify.
"He'll get his information straight, he's an unbelievable man", Trump mentioned. The former federal prosecutor, however, raised a number of questions about Trump's actions and motivations in a series of media interviews this week.
Belying their concerns, Trump and Republicans in Congress have threatened to remove Mueller and other senior Justice officials, a move that top members of Congress have also warned could result in Trump's impeachment. If you fight back they say, 'Oh that's obstruction of, obstruction of justice.'. Because everybody sees it now, and it is a pure witch-hunt.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who joined Trump's legal efforts late last month, told the Washington Post this week that Trump would only agree to a limited, 2-3 hour interview.
