"All the press that have dealt with me in this investigation know, often to their frustration, that I don't discuss the contents of our investigative interviews".

Multiple reports this week said that Mueller is likely to interview Trump in the coming weeks as part of the special counsel investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential race. The others' expertise is mainly in a variety of white-collar crimes, including fraud, money laundering and public corruption, though Mueller also has appellate specialists and one of the government's foremost experts in criminal law.

The FBI begins a counter-intelligence investigation of Russia's attempt to influence the presidential election, including whether Donald Trump's campaign associates were involved. "There is collusion, but it's really with the Democrats and the Russians", he told reporters.

"Certainly I'll see what happens", Trump said.

Senate Democrats released an extensive report on Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election, saying that it fit into a almost two-decade pattern of meddling with governments around the world.

In a separate tweet, Mr Trump accused Democratic senator Dianne Feinstein of being "underhanded and a disgrace" for disclosing details of a dossier of allegations about his ties to Russian Federation during the presidential campaign.

Richard Gates, Manafort's business associate, was also indicted, along with former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos and former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty separately to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Trump's words differed from what he said at a news conference in June, shortly after fired FBI Director James Comey had told Congress that Trump asked him for a pledge of loyalty.

Trump claimed on Wednesday there was "no collusion" between his campaign and Russia, even though his team attended secret meetings with Russian officials, some that included the promise of dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Some social media users speculated that Trump is "feeling the heat" as the investigations gain momentum early this year. It also would invite Mueller to respond by subpoenaing Trump to the grand jury - far less friendly terrain for the president. "We're getting more powerful by the month, by the day", Trump said.

The text messages were released to lawmakers on Capitol Hill in December and Republicans have seized on the messages as proof that Mueller's probe is biased against Trump.
