As discussions continue about whether President Donald Trump will sit down for an interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team, FBI investigators have yet to request an interview with Vice President Mike Pence, a person familiar with the situation told NBC News.

"This says a lot about what Trump thinks it means to be an American", said Hilde Restad, an associate professor in global affairs in Norway and a former US resident.

"When they have no collusion and nobody's found any collusion at any level, it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview", Mr Trump said yesterday during a joint news conference with the prime minister of Norway.

"What we saw with Watergate was the model of a committee where the ranking Republican set the tone by saying the key here is what did the president know and when did he know it? - and followed through with an investigation with integrity", he said.

The comments implied a U-turn from last June when the president said he would be "100 per cent" willing to testify under oath about his interactions with James Comey, whom he fired as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

In case you weren't counting - and I was - Trump uses the exact phrase "no collusion" seven times in that answer.

The comments come after Trump had already lashed out at the investigations on Twitter Wednesday morning, urging Republicans to take control of the inquiries and repeating his claim that they are on a "witch hunt".

Trump has since backtracked on meeting with Mueller as the special counsel's investigation escalated dramatically in the intervening months.

Republican senators say they don't recall vulgar Trump comment
Democratic congressman Luis Gutierrez called Trump "a racist who does not share the values enshrined in our Constitution". There is no other word you can use but "racist". "You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as shitholes".

Trump, White House aides and many Republican lawmakers continue to raise doubts about its contents.

Transcripts of Mr Simpson's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee were released by California Senator Dianne Feinstein. "The Democrats, by contrast, are insisting on a ridiculous, endless investigation for public relations purposes, in order to distract from their inability to provide evidence for the wild arguments they've been making to the media all year".

Though the White House hasn't clarified Trump's erroneous information, it appears that the President may have misread a written statement that was given to him.

The Point: Trump is obsessed and irritated by the ongoing Russian Federation investigations and the questions he continues to get about them. Feinstein told reporters that she didn't tell Grassley beforehand, and "I owe him an apology and I will give him an apology as soon as I see him".

Flynn, however, admitted to misleading Pence about the nature of his conversations with the former Russian ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak.

Still, the release was a blow the two lawmakers' earlier attempts at bipartisanship on the committee's Russian Federation investigation. Mark Warner, D-Va., have worked closely together as panel staff has quietly interviewed more than 100 witnesses. "He says "Just let me at it", and that's the problem".

He is authorized to investigate Russia's interference in the 2016 election, its possible links to the Trump campaign, and "any matters that may arise directly from the investigation".

Late Friday, Trump sent senators a long list of demands on immigration that could prevent Democrats from negotiating a deal to help so-called Dreamers, or young undocumented immigrants who came to the country as children. In the end, much depends on the course Mueller takes and whether the two sides can reach a deal or end up having a lengthy legal fight to decide the issue.
