Trump stirs pot with Mueller interview offer
Trump appeared on Wednesday to make a significant gesture by telling reporters that he wanted to testify to Mueller -- and was ready to do so under oath.
His offer came a day after it emerged that the Mueller had requested an interview with the President as he apparently begins to wind up one branch of his investigation into whether Trump obstructed justice by firing FBI Director James Comey while he was probing alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.
"I am looking forward to it, actually," Trump said, before offering a preview of what his testimony might look like.
"Here is the story: There has been no collusion whatsoever. There is no obstruction whatsoever," Trump said.
Taking a step further, on the second day in a row of blockbuster disclosures about the Mueller probe, Trump offered to do the interview under oath.
