I think Mueller will treat me fairly

While there's no public evidence that this occurred, Mueller reportedly has already interviewed staffers "to determine if the joint [RNC-Trump campaign] effort was related to the activities of Russian trolls and bots aimed at influencing the American electorate".

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he believes Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating possible collusion between Trump campaign officials and Russian Federation in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, will treat him fairly.

The comments, made in an interview with The New York Times at his West Palm Beach golf club, come even as fellow Republicans have argued the Mueller investigation is tainted by anti-Trump bias within the Justice Department and the FBI. While he did not answer the Times' question if he thought one of former president Barack Obama's attorney generals, Eric Holder, was more loyal than Sessions, he said Holder "totally protected" Obama, something he has "great respect for".

"There´s been no collusion".

"He worked for me for - what was it, three and a half months?" he told the Times, mentioning Manafort´s connections to other Republicans including John McCain and Ronald Reagan.

The Trump administration and the GOP have been pushing for a swift end to the probes.

When asked whether he would order the Justice Department to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails, Trump apparently remained focused on the Moscow inquiry.

"But for purposes of hopefully thinking I'm going to be treated fairly, I've stayed uninvolved with this particular matter", Trump said.
