Donald Trump asked key witnesses if Russian Federation investigators were 'nice'

US President Donald Trump listens during a joint news conference at the White House in Washington US

Trump's interaction with McGahn centered around a January New York Times story that revealed that the White House counsel threatened to quit after Trump asked him to fire Mueller.

Trump has denied there was any collusion.

Mr Trump reportedly wanted to know how the interview went, and if the investigators were "nice".

President Trump's legal team is looking to negotiate a deal in which Trump would agree to an interview if special counsel Robert Mueller commits to setting a deadline for his investigation into Russian election meddling, according to a report. But McGhan pressed back and reminded Trump that he had asked him to order Mueller's termination.

Trump has repeatedly decried the investigation as a "witch hunt" and there have been some reports about how people around the President, including his lawyers, have been talking about when Mueller might wrap this up. While the conversations with the two - White House counsel Don McGahn and former chief of staff Reince Priebus - likely did not amount to witness tampering, experts told the Times, they are potentially problematic.

And now it looks like we know Michael's thoughts on the situation - and he wants to lend a helping hand. Understandably, Robb was anxious about reporting this story to her orthodontist.

Trump's lawyers are considering a few options for their conditions: suggesting a deadline to end the probe 60 days after the interview, and perhaps limiting the scope of his questions, people familiar with the matter told the Journal. The president's legal team expect those questions "to focus largely on his decision to fire former national security adviser Mike Flynn and former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey", the report continued. "There is no obstruction whatsoever", Trump told reporters at the time. The Washington Post reported last week that at least four countries, including the United Arab Emirates, have discussed ways they could compromise Jared Kushner, the President's son-in-law.

Mueller, who was hired after Comey's firing, is also probing whether Trump obstructed justice when he terminated Comey.

In January, a number of United States newspapers and broadcasters reported that Mr Trump had also sought to fire Mr Mueller, who took over the investigation following Mr Comey's departure.

Comey was sacked by President Trump during his investigation of possible Russian collusion with the Republican's presidential campaign.
