Special counsel Robert Mueller and his team of prosecutors could interview President Trump on a limited number of questions relating to the Russia probe within the next several weeks, The Washington Post reported Monday.
“This is moving faster than anyone really realizes,” said a person close to the investigation, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
The source added that Trump is comfortable with participating in the questioning and believes it will show that his campaign did not collude with Russia during the 2016 election.
“The White House does not comment on communications with the Office of the Special Counsel out of respect for the Office of the Special Counsel and its process,” White House lawyer Ty Cobb said in a statement to the newspaper.
Mueller’s office is reportedly planning to meet with Trump’s legal team soon to set up the possible conditions for the interview.
