Trump Says It's'Unlikely He'd Give FBI an Interview Trump Says It's'Unlikely He'd Give FBI an Interview

Special Counsel Robert Mueller questioned Attorney General Jeff Sessions for several hours last week, making Sessions the first known member of President Donald Trump's cabinet to be interviewed in Mueller's Russian Federation probe, The New York Times first reported Tuesday.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions was interviewed last week by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office in connection with its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, a Justice Department spokesman said Tuesday.

Sessions is the first member of President Trump's cabinet known to have been questioned by the special counsel's office in its investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

Attorney General Sessions was a Trump campaign insider.

The former Republican senator recused himself last March from any matters associated with the 2016 election, including the Russian Federation investigation, after the disclosure that he had met with Russia's ambassador to the USA while he was a leading adviser for Trump during the campaign. Sessions was an early supporter of Trump's presidential run. Sessions was deeply involved with the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, and one suspects that Mueller was especially interested in how the decision to fire Comey was made and implemented.
