WASHINGTON (AP) – Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of investigators has expressed interest in speaking with President Donald Trump as part of a probe into potential coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign.

But no details are set, including a date for any potential interview, the scope of questions for the president or even whether an interview will take place.

That’s according to a person familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity Monday to discuss the investigation and said it wasn’t surprising Mueller’s team would want to interview Trump.

A spokesman for Mueller declined to comment, as did Trump lawyer John Dowd.

A White House spokesman pointed to a statement from White House lawyer Ty Cobb saying the White House doesn’t publicly discuss its conversations with Mueller.
