US President Donald Trump said on Friday shifted his position over possible talks with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, saying his lawyers have advised him against any talks but that he would submit to questioning if it was “fair.”
Trump has repeatedly said he wanted to talk to Mueller, a fellow Republican investigating alleged Russian meddling in the US 2016 election and possible collusion by the Trump campaign.
“I would love to speak. I would love to. Nobody wants to speak more than me … because we’ve done nothing wrong,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “But I have to find a way to be treated fairly.”
“If I thought it was fair, I would override my lawyer,” he added.
