Trump lawyers ‘in talks over Mueller interview’

Donald Trump’s lawyers are in talks with investigators who are seeking to interview the US president as part of a justice department probe, reports say.

The Washington Post, quoting an unnamed person close to Mr Trump, says investigation lead Robert Mueller is likely to interview him within weeks.

Mr Trump’s legal team has not confirmed the reports.

Mr Mueller is investigating possible collusion between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia in the US elections.

Tensions between Mr Mueller, the special counsel appointed to look into alleged Russian interference, and the president have risen since the investigation led to charges against several former members of Mr Trump’s campaign team.

Mr Trump’s administration denies working with Russia on the election, and the president has labelled the investigation “a witch hunt”.
