WASHINGTON D.C. — White House lawyers were informed in a meeting last month that Special Counsel Robert Mueller may need to interview President Trump as part of the ongoing investigation into possible interference by Russia in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, according to a report by ABC News.

The December meeting reportedly was not the first time Mueller met with Trump's lawyers, and not the first time Mueller informed them of his wish to talk to the president. While no formal request for an interview has so far been made, a source told NBC News that one could come within weeks.

Last June, the president told ABC's Jonathan Karl that he would be "100 percent willing" to testify under oath about the circumstances surrounding his firing of former FBI Director James Comey, who was investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

If Trump refuses to cooperate with a request from the special counsel, Mueller could issue a grand jury subpoena.

The president's lawyers are considering the options for responding to a possible formal request for an interview, including providing written responses to the special counsel's written interrogatories or simply providing an affidavit signed by the president affirming his innocence and denying any collusion with Russia.

But the chances that Mueller would accept written responses in place of a live interview are slim, according to NBC News analyst and former U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia Chuck Rosenberg.

"Prosecutors want to see and hear folks in person," Rosenberg said, as reported by The New York Times. "They want to probe and follow up. Body language and tone are important. And they want answers directly from witnesses, not from their lawyers. The odds of prosecutors agreeing to written responses are somewhere between infinitesimally small and zero."
