Washington: Special Counsel and former FBI director Robert Mueller, probing Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election, wants to question President Donald Trump on the issue, a media report said on Wednesday.

The Washington Post, citing two people familiar with Mr Mueller’s plans, said the special counsel was seeking to question Mr Trump about his ousting of FBI director James Comey and NSA Michael Flynn. They told the newspaper that Mr Trump’s attorneys have worked out terms for the President’s interview with Mr Mueller’s team which could be presented to the special counsel “as soon as next week”. “The President’s legal team hopes to provide Mr Trump’s testimony in a hybrid form — answering some questions in a face-to-face interview and others in a written statement,” said the Post.
