One of the worst presidential chiefs of staff in American history, Reince Priebus, was voluntarily interviewed by members of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team.
I’m sure that went well!
From The Washington Times:
Reince Priebus, President Trump’s former chief of staff, was interviewed Friday by members of special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of investigators as part of the Justice Department’s sprawling probe centered around last year’s election, according to his attorney.
“Mr. Priebus was voluntarily interviewed by Special Counsel Mueller’s team today,” William Burck, a lawyer for Mr. Priebus, said in a statement. “He was happy to answer all of their questions.”
The interview took place at the special counsel’s office in Washington, D.C., and had been in the works for several weeks, according to multiple news reports.
Mr. Priebus didn’t respond Friday to requests for comment, the reports said, and Mr. Mueller, a former FBI director appointed in May to investigate the 2016 U.S. presidential election, has refused to publicly discuss the probe.
Mr. Priebus was chairman of the Republican National Committee during Mr. Trump’s successful 2016 campaign and subsequently served as the president’s first chief of staff prior to resigning July 27, six months and a week into his White House tenure. He was replaced the next day by John Kelly, a retired Marine general and Mr. Trump’s first secretary of Homeland Security.
