Biden: Trump should "obviously" let Mueller interview him

Former Vice President Joe Biden told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell that President Trump should "obviously" allow Special Counsel Robert Mueller to interview him in the ongoing Russia probe:

— Former Vice President Joe Biden
  • On Trump's attacks against the FBI: "Putin must be sitting behind his desk in the Kremlin going, 'It’s working man.' The rest of the world gets the message that the United States of America’s chief law enforcement agency is not truthful; is not honest; is plotting against him as a deep state — my God."

  • On 2020: "I’m focused on one thing. Electing a Democratic Congress to stop this erosion of our — of the core of who we are. And I’ll look at that a year from now."
