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, ' he said at a news conference.

President Donald Trump could sit down with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators as soon as the next few weeks, though any cooperation from the president is being carefully negotiated right now, according to The Washington Post's Carol D. Leonnig.

In June, Trump said he was "being investigated" for firing Comey, and again called it a "witch hunt". Flynn is one of four former Trump campaign officials to face criminal charges in Mueller's inquiry. "It came as the president's advisers have been discussing whether Mr. Trump should submit to what would be an extraordinary but not unprecedented instance of a president being interviewed by a prosecutor investigating him for wrongdoing".

"The single greatest Witch Hunt in American history continues".

The President also took the opportunity to attack his former Democratic political opponent Hillary Clinton, and insisted any collusion that's happened has been between Hillary Clinton and the Democrats, and the Russians.

The reports said Trump's team was weighing several options in response, including submitting written responses, submitting an affidavit saying Trump did nothing wrong, or avoiding an interview all together.

Trump is right that Clinton's Federal Bureau of Investigation interview was not done under oath.

The US president said he will speak to his attorneys regarding the issue. Trump has contended that the investigations are an excuse by Democrats to explain his upset win over Clinton, a former secretary of state.

Trump critics on Twitter celebrated the news as a sign that the probe is not shutting down anytime soon, perhaps failing to realize that Dickey was hired two months ago.

"You'll see that a lot with me", Trump said about his fiery tweets and nuclear missile threats.

Schiff said Thursday that the committee has interviewed 56 witnesses - half the number of people that have appeared before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Schiff said, meaning there are "dozens" of witnesses they have yet to bring in.

"The innuendo and misinformation circulating about the transcript are part of a deeply troubling effort to undermine the investigation into potential collusion and obstruction of justice", she said.

The interview is set to be behind closed doors. That also prompted criticism of the Iowa Republican. Dianne Feinstein. He called her "sneaky" for releasing Russia-related congressional testimony.

Schiff placed the blame largely on Republican Devin Nunes, saying the GOP chairman of the committee - who stepped aside from running the investigation for much of previous year - has blocked dozens of requests for witnesses and subpoenas, with the support of House Speaker Paul Ryan.
