Mr Trump quizzed former chief of staff Reince Priebus about his interview with investigators, and asked White House counsel Don McGahn to deny damaging reports about the investigation, according to the New York Times.

White House chief of staff John Kelly has warned President Donald Trump to be careful about talking to witnesses in the Russian Federation investigation, a White House official told CNN on Thursday.

President Donald Trump's lawyers may offer special counsel Robert Mueller an interview under certain conditions in exchange for a speedy conclusion to the Russian Federation investigation, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

Mr Priebus told Mr Trump that the interviewers were "courteous and professional" but did not go into specifics of what they asked, according to the sources.

Additionally, CNN reported last month that Mueller's team has been asking witnesses about Trump's business activities in Russian Federation prior to the 2016 presidential campaign as he considered a run for president.

Despite Trump's pushback, 19 people and three companies have been indicted in Mueller's probe, including Trump's ex-campaign chairman and his former White House national security adviser.

Trump, who has gone back and forth about whether he'd be willing to be interviewed, would sit down with Mueller's investigators if the special counsel agrees to wrap up the probe within 60 days, a person familiar with the matter told the Wall Street Journal. CBS News has also requested a comment from the White House.

Trump stunned his own attorneys when he announced in January that he was "looking forward" to sitting down with Mueller's investigators. The Washington Post reported last week that at least four countries, including the United Arab Emirates, have discussed ways they could compromise Jared Kushner, the President's son-in-law.

A representative of the special counsel's office declined to comment on the published reports.

In January, a number of USA newspapers and broadcasters reported that Mr Trump had also sought to fire Mr Mueller, who took over the investigation following Mr Comey's departure.

At the time of his firing, Comey was directly overseeing an investigation into possible Trump campaign and Kremlin ties.
