President Donald Trump’s legal team is preparing for a potential interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller and is in preliminary discussions with his office on the parameters of such an encounter, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The negotiations come as Mueller appears to be taking a pause from holding interviews with current White House officials. No administration officials have been questioned by Mueller in about a month, and he has no follow-ups scheduled at this point, the person said, adding that this may be a sign Mueller is winding down the White House end of his investigation into possible collusion with Russia.
