John Dowd said the president's team of lawyers has not yet reached a decision on whether Trump will sit down for an interview with Mueller, according to the Daily Beast.

Dowd was reiterating comments previously made by White House lawyer Ty Cobb.

“He’s ready to meet with them, but he’ll be guided by the advice of his personal counsel,” Cobb told media outlets Wednesday.

The comments follow Trump telling reporters at the White House on Wednesday that he is "looking forward" to the opportunity to sit down with Mueller, insisting that he has done nothing wrong.

"There’s been no collusion whatsoever. There’s no obstruction whatsoever, and I’m looking forward to it," Trump said.

The president also acknowledged at the time that whether he speaks to investigators would depend on the advice of his lawyers. 

“You know, again, it’s ... subject to my lawyers and all of that — but I would love to do it,” he said.

Mueller is investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
