Mueller Reportedly Interviewed White House Advisor Stephen Miller in Russia Probe

It looks like Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference and any possible collusion between Trump campaign associates and Russian officials is now reaching into the president’s inner White House circle.

According to CNN, White House senior policy advisor Stephen Miller has been interviewed as part of Mueller’s investigation. Miller is the highest-level current White House aide to have been interviewed by the special counsel.

Per one of CNN’s sources, Miller was asked about his role in the firing of former FBI Director James Comey. It has been reported that Mueller is potentially looking at obstruction of justice charges related to the May termination of Comey.

CNN also noted that investigators are interested in speaking to those who attended the March 2016 campaign meeting in which former campaign advisor George Papadopoulos said he could set up a meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. Miller was one of those in attendance.
