Almost half say Trump will be cleared in Russian Federation probe

Robert Mueller's team of investigators has reportedly expressed interest in speaking with the United States president in person, though no date has been set.

She said on CBS's "Face the Nation" on October 8 that there's "no proof" yet that there was any collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's campaign, adding: "I think that proof will likely come with Mr. Mueller's investigation".

Reports surfaced this week that the president's lawyers have corresponded with FBI investigators about a potential interview between Trump and Mueller.

Still, the release bucked the two lawmakers' earlier attempts at bipartisanship on the committee's Russian Federation investigation.

This investigation has no set end date, but Mueller appears to be moving quickly, and many observers expect him to issue a report of some kind in 2018, although any talk of a timeline is speculative.

"There is collusion", the President said at a joint news conference with the Prime Minister of Norway. "[Russia President Vladimir] Putin can't love that", Trump said. He proceeded to say the words "no collusion" several times more, bringing up Hillary Clinton, his Democratic opponent in the 2016 election, and insisting that the Russian Federation investigation is "a Democratic hoax" created to deflect from their 2016 White House loss.

"We'll see what happens", Mr. Trump said, arguing that if there is no evidence of collusion, "it seems unlikely that you would even have an interview". "When they have no collusion and nobody's found collusion at any level it seems unlikely that you'd have an interview".

Trump also praised his guest for her "very resounding" election win, proving that she is "very respected" and "very liked" by her country.

Trump's lawyers have previously stated their determination to cooperate with Mueller's requests.

"It's a Democrat hoax that was brought up as an excuse for losing an election", the President said.
