President Donald Trump on Wednesday morning again labeled the probe into potential coordination between his associates and Russian Federation the "single greatest witch hunt" in U.S. history.
"I encourage Norway to follow through on its commitment to meet the 2 percent of GDP defense spending obligation", said Trump during a joint press conference at the White House with visiting Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg.
In October she said there was "no proof" yet that there was any collusion between Russian Federation and Mr Trump's campaign, adding: "I think that proof will likely come with Mr. Mueller's investigation". "Were going to see what happens", the USA president said.
Despite dodging questions this week about his willingness to be interviewed by the special counsel, Trump said in June that he was "100%" willing to testify under oath about his conversations with James Comey, the Federal Bureau of Investigation director he fired.

The special counsel's team of investigators has expressed interest in speaking with Mr Trump, but no details have been worked out. He insists the voluntary commitments in the Paris deal imposed an unfair burden on the United States, the world's No. 2 emitter of carbon pollution.
