Trump says Russia probe is a 'Democrat hoax'

President Trump praises the relationship between the USA and Norway during a joint press conference with the country's Prime Minister Erna Solberg on Wednesday.

Trump also dodged a question on whether or not he would agree to be interviewed as part of the Special Counsel investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the elections past year.

The president's legal team is reportedly considering a number of possible options for such an interview, including an in-person interview of Trump, written responses to questions submitted by Mueller's team or an affidavit signed by the president stating his position on the case.

"It has been determined that there is no collusion by virtually everybody. There was no collusion, everybody including the Dems knows there was no collusion, & yet on and on it goes", Trump tweeted Wednesday.

Mr Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, may also be looking at whether Mr Trump and his inner circle sought to obstruct justice, which has raised speculation that the president himself would be interviewed.

When asked whether he would talk to Mueller's team, Trump deflected the question by repeatedly stating there was "no collusion" between his campaign team and Russian Federation.

Solberg is highlighting the two nation's deep roots and says she assured the president that Norway is an ally and a friend "that you can count on".


ROBERTS: Are you open to meeting with him?

Reminded that Trump has publicly doubted the science behind global warming, Solberg said, "We believe that the science is proof".

Trump says during a joint news conference with the prime minister of Norway that "we'll see what happens" on whether he'll provide an interview to Mueller's team.

Ms Feinstein told reporters that she didn't tell Mr Grassley beforehand, and "I owe him an apology and I will give him an apology as soon as I see him". "Hillary Clinton had an interview where she wasn't sworn in". That's perhaps ridiculous, a lot of people looked on that as being a very serious breach and it really was, ' he said. She wasn't given the oath.

The FBI released notes from that interview with Clinton in September of 2016.

On the subject of Russia's meddling in the USA election to help Trump, Solberg said there was no evidence that Russian Federation had interfered in Norway's recent elections. But whether an oath is given or not, it is a crime to lie to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "For 11 months, they've had this phony cloud over this administration, over our government".
