Donald Trump's attorney Ty Cobb said the president is "very eager" to be interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller.
He made his comments on "The Takeout" podcast hosted by CBS News' chief White House correspondent Major Garrett.
Cobb disclosed there are "active discussions" about setting up a talk with Mueller, although he stressed no formal request has been made.
Cobb said he expects Mueller's investigation into Russia's meddling in the presidential campaign will have no impact on Trump and his presidency and will be completed in four to six weeks.
"I think it's more than appropriate for the Mueller people to explore anything they're interested in," said Cobb, who maintained he is focused on "getting the facts out."
But Cobb did say the probe has created some difficulties for Trump.
"It's very difficult for him to do anything other than to fight for his place in history," Cobb said.
Asked if he thought there is any danger for Trump in talking with Mueller, Cobb said he hoped any interview will be more than a "perjury trap." But he added that he did not believe that was Mueller's intention.
And he downplayed any significance of Michael Wolff's book, "Fire and Fury."
"I don't think you should take anything from the Michael Wolff book seriously," Cobb said
Just last week, Trump said it "seems unlikely" that he'd give an interview to Mueller. However, he added: "We'll see what happens."
"When they have no collusion and nobody's found any collusion at any level, it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview," Trump said.
