FBI special prosecutor, Robert Mueller, wants to speak with Donald Trump … and the president is ready to comply.
Even though Trump has labeled Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russia a “witch hunt” and a “hoax”, Ty Cobb, Trump’s lawyer, says his client is “very eager” to speak with Mueller.
“I’ve got nothing to hide so why shouldn’t I talk with the guy?” asked Trump. “I’m the least collusiony president in history.”
“I think it’s more than appropriate for the Mueller people to explore anything they’re interested in,” Cobb said, claiming he is focused on “getting the facts out.”
But there appears to be a slight hitch.
As has been the case throughout the ongoing FBI investigation, Trump and his legal team do not seem to be on the same page.
After Cobb’s announcement, Trump tweeted, “ I am more than happy to discuss anything that happened before June 16, 2015.”
Trump’s cutoff date coincides with the day he formally announced his presidential campaign at Trump Tower in New York City.
