US President Donald Trump has said he is “looking forward” to being interviewed in an investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the US election.

He said he expected to be questioned by Robert Mueller, Justice Department Special Counsel, within two to three weeks, with approval from his lawyers.

“I would love to do that as soon as possible,” Trump was quoted as saying.

Calling the Russia investigation a “witch hunt” and a “hoax”, Trump had previously said he thought it “unlikely” he would be interviewed by Mueller.

Speaking at the White House on Wednesday, Trump said he was “absolutely” prepared to be questioned under oath by the top investigator.

“There’s been no collusion whatsoever, there’s no obstruction whatsoever,” he said.
