Reince’s revenge?—brought to you by Politico.
Former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus was interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team on Friday, according to his lawyer, William Burck.
“Mr. Priebus was voluntarily interviewed by Special Counsel Mueller’s team today. He was happy to answer all of their questions,” Burck said. […]
Mueller’s team is interested in a number of actions Trump took in office, including the abrupt firing of FBI Director James Comey, a misleading statement written on Air Force One about Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with with a Kremlin-linked lawyer during the campaign, and meetings Trump held as president with Russians, including former ambassador Sergei Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
Priebus is likely one of the few high-level White House staffers who has any chance of expressing pleasure about being interviewed by investigators. It’s hard to know what kind of legal liabilities Priebus might have, but simply put: He’s not Jared Kushner.
