Trump says he’s ‘looking forward’ to Mueller interview

President Donald Trump did not mince words on Wednesday when he said he’s “looking forward” to testifying in special counselor Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to USA Today.

“I’m looking forward to it actually,” Trump told reporters. “There has been no collusion whatsoever, there has been no obstruction whatsoever.”

Trump said he would testify “under oath, absolutely.”

Trump said he wasn’t sure yet if Mueller would be fair to him in questions.

Earlier this month, Trump said he wouldn’t commit to an interview.

"Certainly I'll see what happens," he said at the time. "But when they have no collusion, and nobody's found any collusion at any level, it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview."
