Trump pushes for interview with Mueller against advice

U.S. President Donald Trump arrives at a Make America Great Again Rally at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa Florida

Trump himself is reportedly pushing for the interview to happen.

The investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller is now examining the trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on bank and tax fraud charges.

Last year, Sessions recused himself from any investigation related to the 2016 presidential campaigns soon after it came to light that he had failed to disclose during his Senate confirmation hearing contacts with Russia's ambassador to Washington.

Is the tweet suggesting Attorney General Jeff Sessions shut down the Mueller investigation, in itself, obstruction of justice? "Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to US!" "America must never accept it", Democratic congressman Adam Schiff tweeted.

Mueller's team responded earlier this week to a proposal Trump's lawyers submitted some 11 days ago that suggested the president would only answer questions about whether his 2016 campaign colluded with Russian Federation, not whether Trump obstructed justice, said Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

Coats is addressing reporters Thursday during a White House briefing on the Trump Administration's efforts to prevent future foreign and outside interference in USA elections. "The president has expressed the same opinion", Giuliani told Reuters.

Trump has harangued Mueller for including too many Democratic investigators and even made wrong claims about what precipitated the Russian Federation investigation.

Trump has mulled easing sanctions against Moscow, held warm meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin and refused to criticise him over the meddling in the 2016 election.

In the past, Trump has privately pressed Sessions to end his recusal and take control of the Mueller probe, according to people familiar with the discussions.

After complaining about the tough questions he received from American reporters in Finland, Trump has largely steered clear of the mainstream media, instead opting for safer spaces like an interview with ally Rush Limbaugh this week.

Rudy Giuliani, the president's lawyer, stressed that Trump was just issuing an opinion, though he also said the White House believes "the investigation should be brought to a close".

Mr Manafort's involvement in the Trump campaign spanned six months and he led efforts to secure the Republican nomination for Trump 2016.

News reports that Mueller's office has requested an interview with Agalarov, who a year ago emerged as a key figure in possible efforts by the Russian government to coordinate with Trump's campaign. Last month, immediately after his one-on-one meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin - Trump appeared to believe Putin's denial over the United States intelligence community's conclusion that Russia interfered in the 2016 election.

"We continue to see a pervasive messaging campaign by Russian Federation to try to weaken and divide the United States", Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said. Trump accepted Putin's denials despite the intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election, though the president later conceded there was interference.

Peter Carr, spokesman for the special counsel's office, declined to comment on Trump's Twitter post.

The special counsel is still seeking to press Trump on topics related to obstruction, including some questions about the firing of then-FBI Director James Comey, but not as many as Mueller originally sought.

"Looking back on history, who was treated worse, Alfonse Capone, legendary mob boss, killer and 'Public Enemy Number One, ' or Paul Manafort", he wrote.
