Reince Priebus interviewed in Mueller's Russia investigation, lawyer says

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

Former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus was interviewed Friday by special counsel Robert Mueller's team of investigators as part of an ongoing investigation into potential coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, his attorney said.

Priebus, who was sacked as chief of staff in July, is one of several current and former White House officials who Mueller has been interested in interviewing as part of his expansive investigation, which started out as a probe of Russian interference in the presidential campaign.

In a statement, Priebus' lawyer William Burck said his client was interviewed voluntarily.

Politico reported on Thursday that Trump lawyers were mulling a potential interview between Mueller and Trump.

Priebus has been with Trump longer than most of his political associates and is expected to be able to give insight into Trump's decision making patterns, which could impact how the Special Counsel views the firing of FBI Director Jim Comey. Priebus worked as chairman of the Republican National Committee before coming to the White House.

Priebus stepped down as chief of staff in July, one of a string of high profile departures from Trump's tumultuous first six months in office.

Priebus did not answer his cell phone Friday evening.

Special counsel investigators were expected to begin interviewing current and former White House staff regarding the Russian probe in recent weeks, two sources familiar with the matter told CNN.
