President Donald Trump's lawyers and special counsel Robert Mueller discussed a potential January 27, 2018, interview of the President before talks between the two sides stalled, sources briefed on the discussions told CNN.

The President's legal team discussed the logistics of holding the multi-hour interview session at Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland, the sources said. But there's disagreement among people involved over how close the two sides were to an agreement before the President's team rejected the plan.

The possible date for an interview, which has not been previously reported, appears to have been the only date discussed so far, according to one of the sources.
