Initial talks underway about Trump interview in Mueller Russia probe

Justice Department veterans said Mueller would almost certainly want to interview the president directly in the probe, which has so far resulted in two indictments and two guilty pleas.

“Prosecutors want to see and hear folks in person,” said Chuck Rosenberg, former U.S. attorney and former Comey chief of staff. 

“They want answers directly from witnesses, not from their lawyers. The odds of prosecutors agreeing to written responses are somewhere between infinitesimally small and zero.”
