WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump’s lawyers are seeking to negotiate a deal with special counsel Robert Mueller that uses an interview with the president as leverage to spur a conclusion to the Russia investigation, according to a person familiar with the discussions.

No.

What a dumb idea.  So far they have not found any collusion between Trump and Russia.  Mueller is now looking into the Trump organization after the campaign.  So, other than giving Mueller and cronies ammunition to use against him either now or in the future, what exactly do his lawyers really expect to gain? Why, oh why, of all people, would they trust Mueller or try to bargain with him?
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

Exactly.  Such a deal would not be in good faith, and Trump knows better.  He may be a foole in many things, but he knows better than to trade an act (meeting with Mueller) for a promise (to wrap up the investigation).
