While the main areas of Mueller's investigation are Russia's actions during the 2016 presidential election and any attempts by Trump to obstruct justice, none of those topics are expected to come up in Manafort's trial.
Mr. Trump also said Mr. Comey is a close friend of Mr. Mueller.
"Mueller isn't investigating 'collusion.' He is investigating possible coordination between the campaign and the Russians, particularly any actual crimes committed in the context of that coordination", Moss said.
Trump echoed comments by one of his lawyers, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, about collusion not specifically being an offense in the USA legal code. "Well the president didn't hack". "So collusion by that word is not a crime, but a conspiracy to violate campaign finance laws and other laws, that is a crime".
Trump chief of staff says he will stay at Trump's request
"I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff". Every few months, reports re-emerge about Kelly's dissatisfaction with his job and potential resignation.
Although collusion is not listed as a federal crime, a person found collaborating with a foreign government could be charged with conspiracy, among other crimes.
Trump has for months said there was "no collusion" between his campaign aides and Russian Federation and that as president he did not attempt to block Mueller's probe.
Trump fired James Comey, the former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, in May 2017 as he was leading the agency's Russian Federation investigation before Mueller was named to take over the Russian Federation probe.
Although Trump has strongly opposed views there was any collusion between Russian Federation and his campaign, he has made similar remarks as Giuliani in the past, a New York Times report highlighted.

The meeting was also attended by former campaign chair Paul Manafort, whose role Giuliani diminished Monday, and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner. 'I can't tell you, ' he siad.
"I can think of six major gaffes just since the weekend where he's had to go back on a show and clean up something he said previously on another show". He didn't say the president knew about it.
Giuliani said he had no firsthand knowledge of Mueller's plans, but he expected the special counsel to file something by September 1, two months before the midterm elections. The president has also used his Twitter to allege partisan bias among Mueller's investigative team, which he has dubbed the "13 angry Democrats".
Trump and Giuliani's views of Cohen have soured recent weeks, especially after it was revealed that several audio recordings between the President and his former confidant were among evidence produced from the raids. See, Giuliani thought it'd be a good idea Sunday and Monday to make the media rounds, get his face back out there, and also destroy his client's case, which is exactly what he did during nearly every single interview.

About 7,700 US soldiers are listed as missing from the conflict, and 5,300 of the remains are believed to still be in North Korea. But there are reports North Korea continues to build nuclear missiles.
What does this portend for special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation? "He's referring to a dispute which I imagine Mueller - I imagine he disclosed it to [Deputy Attorney General Rod] Rosenstein when he appointed him, because it would involve something that actually wasn't settled even to this day", Giuliani said. I say that to attack the legitimacy of the investigation, ' Giuliani said.
