Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer was interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team to discuss former FBI Director James Comey’s firing in May and President Trump’s meetings with Russian officials.
Mueller, who is spearheading the federal investigation into Russian meddling during the 2016 campaign and whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians, pressed Spicer for details on Monday about Comey and Trump’s meetings with Russian officials, according to Politico. The interview reportedly lasted the majority of the day.
