According to a source close to the investigation who spoke with the Journal, the president's legal team is considering potentially using a sit-down meeting with Mueller in exchange for a number of factors, "including that the special counsel commit to a date for concluding at least the Trump-related portion of the investigation".
Mueller's investigators are aware of two occasions where Trump asked witnesses about conversations they had with investigators, The New York Times reported Wednesday, citing three people familiar with the encounters.
The two witnesses in question are White House counsel Don McGahn II, and former Chief of Staff and RNC Chair Reince Priebus. As part of his probe, Mueller is also investigating any potential obstruction of justice.
Trump's team expects the questions to mainly focus on the firings of former FBI Director James Comey and former national security advisor Michael Flynn, the Journal said.
A headline like "Trump Spoke to Witnesses About Matters They Discussed With Special Counsel" can seem boring in comparison.

Team Trump also wants to limit the scope of the topics Mueller can cover, the paper said, focusing only on Mike Flynn, the ex-national security adviser who has already pleaded guilty, and James Comey, the former top G-man who was sacked over the investigation into Russian election meddling and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. In December, during a meeting in the West Wing, the president brought up Priebus' meeting with Mueller, asking how it went and if investigators had been "nice".
Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III has gathered evidence that a secret meeting in Seychelles just before the inauguration of Donald Trump was an effort to establish a back channel between the incoming administration and the Kremlin - apparently contradicting statements made to lawmakers by one of its participants, according to people familiar with the matter.
Trump has denied there was any collusion.
Comey was sacked by President Trump during his investigation of possible Russian collusion with the Republican's presidential campaign.
Legal experts expressed doubt that Mueller would agree to set a deadline for his investigation under any circumstances.
