Special Counsel Robert Mueller is looking to interview a range of current and former White House staffers – including top former aides Sean Spicer and Reince Priebus – as part of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, Fox News has learned.
The investigators want to speak with aides connected to Donald Trump Jr.’s controversial meeting at Trump Tower last year with a Russian lawyer, among other incidents.
The Washington Post first reported that Mueller is specifically looking to interview a half-dozen Trump associates connected to those episodes.
The list includes press aide Hope Hicks and White House Counsel Don McGahn, as well as Spicer and Priebus – who until recently served as White House press secretary and chief of staff, respectively.
Mueller has not requested to speak with the president himself, Fox News is told.
