President Trump declined to commit to interviewing with special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) MuellerWhy a special counsel is guaranteed if Biden chooses Yates, Cuomo or Jones as AG Barr taps attorney investigating Russia probe origins as special counsel CNN's Toobin warns McCabe is in 'perilous condition' with emboldened Trump MORE amid the federal Russia probe, saying in comments released Friday that he has not been asked to do so.

"I don’t know. I mean I – nobody's asked me to do that," Trump told Fox Business Network's Maria Bartiromo when asked if he would do an interview with Mueller.

Bartiromo pointed to media reports that Trump's legal team was weighing whether the president should interview with the special counsel.


Trump continued to insist during the Fox Business interview that "there is no collusion" amid federal and congressional probes into his campaign associates' ties to Russia during the 2016 election.

"There is no collusion, I can tell you that," Trump said, claiming "everybody's seen that."

"You know you have Senate meetings, you have Senate hearings and nobody has asked us to do interviews anywhere. They have found no collusion," he added.

Mueller's team has interviewed a number of Trump associates, including former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, as part of the probe.
