President Trump has reportedly dismissed his legal team’s advice against sitting down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators and expressed an eagerness to testify in the Russia probe. Three sources cited by The New York Times on Wednesday said Trump told his aides he believes his testimony can put an end to the investigation and convince Mueller’s office that the inquiry is a “witch hunt.” His lawyers have reportedly been willing to call off all negotiations for the interview in recent days, but Trump has demanded they continue. While Mueller’s office has reportedly refused to budge on plans to question the president about possible obstruction of justice, investigators did agree to allow Trump to answer some questions in written form, according to the report. Written responses would only be allowed, however, if the president is willing to answer follow-up questions in person, a stipulation that Trump’s legal team is reportedly fighting.
