Trump Says He Did Not Discuss Russia Probe With Acting Attorney General Whitaker
On Friday, Trump said he did not discuss the Russia probe with Matt Whitaker before appointing him as acting attorney general.
According to Reuters, Trump also said he had not ruled out sitting down for an interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Robert Mueller is probing alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election and any possible collusion with Trump’s campaign.
Whitaker took over at the Justice Department on Wednesday after Trump asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign.
