Trump Says He'll Speak to Mueller Under Oath

President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that he's "looking forward" to speaking with special counsel Robert Mueller.

"I would do it under oath," Trump told reporters outside the White House during an impromptu news conference. Trump's announcement comes one day after two sources told the Washington Post that Mueller intended to question Trump about his decisions to fire national security adviser Michael Flynn and former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey.

"Here is the story: There has been no collusion whatsoever," Trump said, referring to accusations that his campaign colluded with Russia in the 2016 election. "There is no obstruction whatsoever. And I am looking forward to it."

The Post reports that Trump's legal team is creating some "negotiation terms" for the Mueller interview and hopes to "provide Trump's testimony in a hybrid form," through both face-to-face and written statement answers.

The news came as Trump was preparing to depart the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, the New York Times reports.
