Had you watched the actual "impromptu" press conference when he made the "I'm looking forward to it." statement you would have noted that he added the "...depending on the what the lawyers say." meaning he would follow the advice of his counsel. Who would not follow the advice of counsel?
As usual, the liberal media doesn't report an important part of the President's statement. They do that all the time. I'm going to ENJOY watching them fry.

Who knows, it could be all smoke and mirrors and this interview might not be what we think.
"Good afternoon Mr. President. Here is what I've discovered so far about Hillary et al..."

The President has few choices. If The President wants to talk to the FBI voluntarily, then that's how it will happen. By the way, you can not lie to the FBI without breaking the law. If the President refused to testify, he'll be issued a subpoena (just like President Bill Clinton had). Then The President will talk to a Grand Jury. No lawyers in a Grand Jury, just the Prosecutor and you testifying. It is against the law to lie to a grand jury. The only other option would be taking the fifth. But we all know The President has nothing to hide, SO WHY WOULD HE HAVE TO DO THAT?
Sorry, but it's not up to Trump's lawyers whether or not he has to talk to the FBI. If the FBI want The President to talk to them, The President will. NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW. Not Bill Clinton, in his day. Not Trump now.
Hillary Clinton must answer questions in writing but need not appear for a deposition in a lawsuit that challenges her use of a private email server while she was secretary of State, a federal judge ruled Friday.
