Special counsel Bob Mueller will interview current and former Trump administration officials as part of the Russia investigation, The New York Times reports.
Sources tell the Times that Mueller plans to interview former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and other officials from within the administration.
According to the Times, Mueller has requested information from the White House about specific meetings, who was in attendance, and whether there are notes or transcripts.
More, via NY Times:
Among the matters Mr. Mueller wants to ask the officials about is President Trump’s decision in May to fire the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, the two people said.
That line of questioning will be important as Mr. Mueller continues to investigate whether Mr. Trump obstructed justice in the dismissal of Mr. Comey…
Mr. Mueller has expressed interest in speaking with other administration officials, including members of the communications team. But Mr. Trump’s allies are particularly concerned about Mr. Mueller’s interest in talking to Mr. Priebus, a former chairman of the Republican National Committee who worked closely with Mr. Trump during the presidential campaign. Mr. Trump’s confidants at the White House say Mr. Trump was never fully convinced that Mr. Priebus would be loyal to him.
