President Donald Trump's former chief of staff Reince Priebus was interviewed today by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, his lawyer Bill Burck said.

Priebus, who left the Trump administration in July, had previously said he would cooperate with the investigation, and a statement from Burck reaffirmed that on Friday: "Mr. Priebus was voluntarily interviewed by Special Counsel Mueller's team today".

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

Mueller's investigation into alleged ties between Trump campaign associates and Russian Federation during last year's election appears to be extending to current and former White House officials. He also was present during the presidential transition and served as White House chief of staff during times crucial to Mueller investigation, including while Flynn served in the administration and while Trump made the decision to fire Comey.

Priebus was chief of staff when President Trump suddenly fired FBI director James Comey in May, an incident which the president has indicated was related to the Russian Federation investigation that was at the time being led by Comey. Priebus worked as chairman of the Republican National Committee before coming to the White House. "The President waved at him to close the door, saying he would be done shortly". His voicemail box was full.

Mueller's team has also indicated an interest in interviewing a series of other current and former White House aides, including White House counsel Don McGahn and director of communications Hope Hicks.
