Trump Lawyers to Continue Talks With Mueller on Interview

Lawyers for President Donald Trump are expected to continue talks next week with Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team about an interview with the president, despite comments from Trump suggesting an interview is unlikely.

The lawyers may speak by phone with Muellerís team as early as next Tuesday and are continuing an exchange over logistics, said a person briefed on the situation. Working out those details could take several weeks and a series of additional phone calls, the person said. Trump lawyer John Dowd declined to comment on his communications with the special counselís office.

Mueller, whoís investigating Russia meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign and whether anyone close to Trump colluded in it, has also indicated he would like to call back several White House staffers who were interviewed early on to ask about additional information he has received, the person said. The interviews are expected to be brief and donít necessarily indicate significant changes in the investigation, according to the person.

Among those who have been interviewed by Muellerís team are Trumpís son-in-law Jared Kushner, White House Counsel Don McGahn, former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, former spokesman Sean Spicer and National Security Council chief of staff Keith Kellogg, according to people familiar with the investigation.

3. "despite comments from Trump suggesting an interview is unlikely"

He WILL be "interviewed"... whether it be by phone/video and/or deposition or an in-person appearance somewhere (including a Grand Jury). And the "negotiation" means picking the date/time for "voluntary" and if not voluntary, then he'll get a subpoena.
