Russian Federation probe special counsel interviews ex-Trump chief of staff Priebus

Russian Federation probe special counsel interviews ex-Trump chief of staff Priebus”

Investigators working for Special Counsel Robert Mueller interviewed former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus on Friday, his attorney said.

Priebus, who left the Trump administration in July, had previously said he would cooperate with the investigation, and a statement from Burck reaffirmed that on Friday: "Mr. Priebus was voluntarily interviewed by Special Counsel Mueller's team today".

Priebus' lawyer, William Burck, told Politico that the one-time Trump administration staffer sat down willingly with Mueller's team.

Mueller's inquiry includes whether Trump might have obstructed justice by trying to persuade then-FBI Director James Comey to drop an investigation of Michael Flynn, the president's first national security adviser.

Mueller's team has conducted interviews with a number of current and former Trump campaign and administration staffers as the Russian Federation probe continues.

While Trump has repeatedly blasted Mueller's probe, White House lawyers have been eager to show they are cooperating with Mueller's requests.
