WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus has been questioned by US Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team in the investigation into Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election, Priebus’ attorney William Burck said.
"Mr. Priebus was voluntarily interviewed by Special Counsel Mueller’s team today. He was happy to answer all of their questions," Burck stated on Friday as quoted by Politico.
The Intelligence Committee said it has scheduled 25 additional interviews in October.
Trump has dismissed the allegation as untrue and a politically-motivated witch hunt. Russia has also repeatedly denied the allegations saying they are absurd.
