Trump still 'intends' to talk to Mueller, says White House aide

President Trump still plans to talk to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, White House principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said Sunday on ABC's This Week.

"The president has told me twice now, once last year and once this year, that he will meet and talk to the special counsel, answer questions under oath," said host Jonathan Karl. "I assume the president plans to keep his word on that?"

"Well, look, he's also said that that will be in consultation with his attorneys. They have been in touch with the special counsel and they're going to be communicating back and forth," Shah answered. "I'm sure [Trump] intends to [talk]. But what I'm saying is that his attorneys are communicating with the special counsel on the specifics."

Below, watch Shah's interview, which also addresses Trump's upcoming meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, and read yours truly on why Trump's lawyers would want him to keep quiet, guilty or not. Bonnie Kristian
