Did Matt Drudge Reveal POTUS Set For Mueller Grilling? “Upcoming Questioning of Trump Should Be Televised!”
In a rare tweet Monday, media pioneer Matt Drudge suggested Robert Mueller’s “upcoming questioning of Trump,” should be televised — perhaps revealing, despite recent reports, that President Trump is set to be interviewed by the Special Counsel.

“Mueller’s upcoming questioning of Trump should be televised! Simply too much distrust in process. Grand Jury heavily stacked with Dem voters,” tweeted Drudge.
Over the weekend, President Trump told Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo that no request has been made to interview with Mueller.
The Hill reports:
“I don’t know. I mean I – nobody’s asked me to do that,” Trump told Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo when asked if he would do an interview with Mueller.
Bartiromo pointed to media reports that Trump’s legal team was weighing whether the president should interview with the special counsel.
Trump continued to insist during the Fox Business interview that “there is no collusion” amid federal and congressional probes into his campaign associates’ ties to Russia during the 2016 election.
“There is no collusion, I can tell you that,” Trump said, claiming “everybody’s seen that.”
