President Trump on Monday said he will "strongly consider" giving written or in-person testimony in the House impeachment inquiry, despite his repeated refusal to cooperate with the investigation thus far.

Trump responded to Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) suggestion on "Face the Nation" a day earlier in which she said the president could "come right before the committee and talk... or he could do it in writing."

"Even though I did nothing wrong, and don't like giving credibility to this No Due Process Hoax, I like the idea & will, in order to get Congress focused again, strongly consider it!" Trump tweeted.

The White House has directed officials not to comply with the impeachment inquiry, and it's unclear whether Trump would follow through on testifying himself.

He previously said during former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation that he would sit for an interview, only to provide Mueller with written answers to several questions.
