Part of Mueller's investigation includes a review of some of Trump's official actions, including the firing of former FBI Director James Comey a year ago, to determine if the president attempted to obstruct justice.

"I would love to speak because we've done nothing wrong", he added.

Host Frank Stasio talks about the headlines from Washington with Political Junkie Ken Rudin.

President Donald Trump said Friday that he would "love to speak" with special counsel Robert Mueller, but only if he's "treated fairly". Why don't we have Republicans looking also? Plus, Washington continues to stir about the performance by comedian Michelle Wolf at the White House Correspondents' dinner.

Trump's new lawyer, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, said any interview between Trump and Mueller must have parameters and can not last more than three hours.

Addressing reporters shortly after at Andrews Air Force Base, Trump hinted that he would agree to the meeting only if he was assured that he would be treated fairly, claiming that the investigation is now a "witch hunt" and that Mueller's team consists of "angry Democrats".

In a second tweet, Trump said: "It would seem very hard to obstruct justice for a crime that never happened".

Matt Ryan, Falcons agree on new contract
That would put the total around $150 for the life of the extension, while keeping Ryan in Atlanta through 2023, his age-37 season. If the Falcons had chosen to play games with Ryan's deal it could have caused Jones to become happy with his current contract.

"I would love to speak", he insisted.

Asked what questions might be appropriate, the lawyer Rudy Giuliani, a former NY mayor, suggested two to Reuters: "Was there some agreement with the Russians?"

"If I thought it was fair, I would override my lawyers", he continued, suggesting his team of attorneys are against the sit-down meeting. The House Intelligence Committee released a report last week in which the panel's GOP members largely corroborated Trump's position that there was no collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation. "Nothing I want to do more", the president said. On Fox News, host Neil Cavuto-a longtime advocate for the Trump administration-appeared to turn on Trump and Giuliani on Thursday.

Cobb's departure was not unexpected given that he had largely wrapped up his duties of providing documents to Mueller and shepherding aides through voluntary interviews with the special counsel's team. It is longstanding policy for the Department of Justice not to indict a sitting president; as TIME reported in March, that means that if Mueller finds any serious wrongdoing on the president's part the agency will likely bring those findings to the House of Representatives, which would determine whether to begin impeachment proceedings.

But other members of the legal team share Trump's view that they should take a more confrontational approach with the special counsel, including lawyer Jay Sekulow, who has urged the group to consider the pros and cons of fighting a subpoena, according to people familiar with his advice.

"Rudy understands this better than everybody but when he made certain statements, he just started yesterday, so that's it", Trump said.

Giuliani has done numerous television interviews in recent days, including with ABC News, and has stood behind his comments.
