Report: Robert Mueller Wants to Interview Priebus in Russia Probe

By Josh Delk, The Hill

obert Mueller, the special counsel in charge of the Russia probe, plans to interview current and former senior Trump administration officials as part of his ongoing investigation, according to a new report on Saturday.

Mueller is reportedly looking to interview former administration officials including Reince Priebus, who recently resigned as White House chief of staff, three sources close to the discussions told the New York Times.

Mueller is asking for records including details of specific meetings with administration and campaign officials, and any related documents such as transcripts. The meetings he's asking about include those related to President Trump's decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey, according to the report.

Priebus would likely know a number of specifics about all meetings in the White House.

Mueller recently assembled a grand jury as part of the investigation, which has the power to subpoena records and ask for witness testimonies on the case.

The investigation encompasses Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and any possible collusion between members of Trump's campaign or administration and Moscow.

Mueller’s interest in Trump’s senior advisers, especially those who have revealed meetings with Russian officials during the campaign, was expected. However, it is further indication that his probe is expansive and becoming more intense.

Ty Cobb, a special counsel to the president, too the paper the White House would "continue to fully cooperate” with Mueller’s investigation.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

I'm quite sure Mueller will leave no stone unturned. He's in search of a crime. Sure, Trump is a scum, but as Chomsky says there is no readily observable crime that he's committed. But Mueller will find something he can prosecute. That's why he was hired.
