Mueller interviews Stephen Miller in Russian Federation investigation

J. Scott Applewhite | AP | BDN

Stephen Miller, a senior aide to President Donald Trump, met with special counsel Robert Mueller in connection with his investigation into Russian interference during the 2016 presidential election, signaling that the inquiry has extended to the highest reaches of the administration.

Among the topics of discussion was Miller's role in the firing of FBI Director James Comey, as Mueller examines the possibility of obstruction of justice. He is one of Mueller's few interviewees now working in the Trump White House.

Miller was also at the meeting, the official said.

The Philadelphia Eagles and DT Tim Jernigan agreed to a four-year contract extension, the team announced on Thursday evening. More than $62 million in guarantees is now earmarked for two players on the interior of the defensive line.

Miller helped #45 pen a memo back in May laying out why Comey was getting shitcanned. That memo was never sent, but is reportedly now in Mueller's possession. Miller's potential usefulness to the probe doesn't end with the Comey firing letter: campaign worker George Papadopoulos told other Trump staffers at a March 2016 meeting that he could arrange a meeting between Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin; Miller attended that meeting, a source told CNN. Despite President Donald Trump's best efforts, it's increasingly apparent that the White House is not going to be able to brush off the mounting evidence of Kremlin meddling.

Mueller's team has also talked to key former aides including former White House Chief of Staff Reince Preibus, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and National Security Council Chief of Staff Keith Kellogg.

McGahn is on Mueller's list of folks to interview, as are communications director Hope Hicks and former Hollywood publicist Josh Raffel, who was tapped by Jared Kushner for a role in the White House Office of American Innovation.
