Trump 'looking forward' to being questioned

Sessions was the first member of Trump's Cabinet known to have been questioned by Mueller's office.

Mueller wants to question Trump in the coming weeks about the firing of former FBI Director James Comey as well as the ouster of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, the Washington Post reports.

What began as a probe into whether or not the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election has turned into one focused on obstruction of justice.

Trump last week said he did not expect to meet with Mueller.

"I'm looking forward to it actually", Trump told reporters in the West Wing of the White House shortly before departing for Davos.

Trump made a decision to assert that Mueller had unacceptable conflicts of interest and moved to remove him, according to the people familiar with internal conversations.

Such questioning is further indication that Mr Mueller's criminal investigation into purported Russian interference in the election and potential collusion by Mr Trump's campaign includes examining the President's actions around the probe.

Trump's remarks reignited the news cycle on the Russian Federation collusion investigation after several details of the investigation started to leak into the media.

Trump said as recently as December that he was not considering firing Mueller, but speculation over the possibility has been widespread.

Trump has repeatedly denied making any demand, calling Comey's account a "lie". But the White House appears keenly aware that any attempt to get rid of Mueller could create a massive public relations headache that could envelop the administration.

Dowd's suggestion came a day after Trump's assertion that he wanted to speak with Mueller, and to do so under oath. "It's a manifestation of the media".

Reacting to The New York Times' story. Sen. Flynn and Papadopoulos are cooperating with the special counsel's office.

It appears that justice department special counsel Robert Mueller may get to question the president as part of his probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election.

"I'm looking forward to it, and I would like to do it as soon as possible", he said. There is no obstruction whatsoever.

"Certainly I'll see what happens", he said during a news conference this month.

And later, he told reporters that he would do so under oath.

What's more, he would "absolutely" do it under oath.
