Past year when he was asked if he would testify under oath as part of Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the election, Trump said yes "one hundred percent". "And I respect that very much and that this is an issue for American politics", she said.

- While firmly criticizing the Russian Federation investigation, President Donald Trump was non-committal on whether he would agree to a possible interview with the U.S. Justice Department's special counsel Robert Mueller. "Or would you demand that a strict set of parameters be placed around any encounter between you and the special counsel?" Republicans have in turn criticised Democrats for trying to draw out the probe and say there's no clear evidence of collusion between Trump and Russian Federation.

He ridiculed Hillary Clinton, her opponent in the elections, for being interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the email case in 2016.

Trump, meanwhile, has repeatedly derided the Mueller probe as the greatest "witch hunt" in the country's political history and denied any collusion took place. "When they have no collusion and nobody's found collusion at any level, it seems unlikely that you'd have an interview".

Trump had previously said he would be "100 per cent" willing to meet Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

It has always been understood that investigators would seek answers from the man who presided over the campaign and White House that has been probed over issues ranging from any collusion to possible obstruction of justice and other matters. Trump's attorneys are looking for ways to limit the President's exposure, including requesting Mueller abide by certain parameters for the interview.

To recap, Mueller's appointment as special counsel in May came with broad jurisdiction.

In the book, Bannon said it was "treasonous" of Trump's son Donald Trump Jr.to accept a meeting with a Russian lawyer in June 2016 who he thought would provide damaging information about Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton as part of a Russian government effort to help his father's campaign. She wasn't given the oath.
