Fox News’s Chris Stirewalt: If Trump Wants The Russia Probe to End, He Should Sit Down With Mueller


On Tuesday night, Fox News politics editor Chris Stirewalt weighed in on the latest reports regarding the ongoing Russia probe.

Earlier this evening, The Washington Post reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller informed President Trump‘s legal team that while he is still being investigated, he himself currently isn’t the target of a criminal investigation and that Mueller still wants to hear from the president.

Stirewalt told Fox News @ Night anchor Shannon Bream that it would be a “good idea” for Trump to sit down with Mueller if he wants this investigation to “come to a conclusion.”

“If you’re ready to be done and let the chips fall where they may and have this be over, then you do the interview,” Stirewalt said. “It is foolhardy to imagine that somehow this matter could conclude without the president providing some testimony. Now they’re gonna fight like the dickens over what  the terms are and what those things are but this has to happen or we’re not going to be finished here.

Stirewalt insisted that “no matter how you butter your bread politically,” everybody needs this investigation to “come to some sort of clean conclusion.”
