Trump could soon face questioning in Russian Federation probe

Jeff Sessions Is Interviewed in Mueller’s Russia Investigation

Jeff Sessions Is Interviewed in Mueller’s Russia Investigation

The Justice Department says the investigators questioned Attorney General Jeff Sessions last week, making him the highest administration figure interviewed so far in the probe of contacts between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 campaign. "There's no obstruction whatsoever, and I'm looking forward to it". "I would do it under oath, absolutely", he added.

The special counsel's investigators may be moving closer to a face-to-face interview with President Donald Trump.

Sessions and Trump have clashed repeatedly, with the president publicly criticizing his attorney general in tweets and comments.

The president also said that he would be willing to testify under oath.

Trump's presidential campaign turned over 1.4 million pages to the special counsel, and 17 campaign staffers - along with 11 individuals affiliated with the campaign - gave interviews to Mueller's team or congressional committees, according to Dowd's memo. "I would do it", he said, later adding, "I would do it under oath, yeah".

Mueller has indicted multiple former associates of the president, including his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about conversations he had with the Russian ambassador.

Trump also is likely to be questioned closely about his dismissal of Flynn for allegedly lying to Vice President Mike Pence about his pre-inaugural contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Although Trump may want to testify, White House special counsel Ty Cobb made the case last week that attorneys don't want to expose him to a potential a "perjury trap".

US intelligence agencies agreed in 2016 that Moscow was responsible for meddling in the presidential election prompting four investigations into any involvement by Trump and his associates.

The summoning of Sessions and further probe by Mueller came to light after news filtered in that the U.S. attorney general was questioned for hours by the special counsel during a meeting last week.

White House counsel Donald McGahn said he would quit rather than follow through on the order to fire Mueller, the Times reported, citing the people. But during a news conference earlier this month, when asked about reports that the special counsel planned to seek such an interview, Trump dodged the question. Mueller is also investigating contacts between Trump's 2016 campaign and Russian Federation. "It'll be bigger and better than ever", the president told reporters.
