President Donald Trump is eager to meet with special counsel Robert Mueller's team to clear his name, and in recent days has pushed his legal team to come to an agreement for a sit-down interview, according to three sources who spoke with The New York Times.

The report comes a day after Mueller responded to a letter from Trump's attorneys regarding the scope and format of a potential interview. The special counsel still wants to ask the president about obstruction of justice and other topics, but Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani has said Trump's team wants an interview limited to questions involving alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election, arguing no "legal basis" exists for the president to be questioned about obstruction.

According to Fox News, Mueller has agreed to cut the number of questions for the president to answer to 49, and wants to ask questions both orally and written for Trump to respond to.

Trump's legal team is said to be preparing a response to send to Mueller within the next three days, per the Times.
