Special Counsel Robert Mueller has begun talking to senior people in the Donald Trump administration. Now, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is in the special counsel’s sights. The AG recused himself from the Russia investigation last March, because he was involved in the Trump campaign. What did Sessions tell Mueller?

The special counsel questioned him for several hour

Trump expected Sessions to have his back, apparently not understanding that the Justice Department operates independently. During Sessions’ confirmation hearings with Congress, he did not disclose that he met two times with the Russian ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyah, during the campaign. The AG was one of the first Trump campaign supporters.

Mueller would be interested in a potential obstruction of justice. Trump fired former FBI director, James Comey, after he refused to drop the investigation into then national security adviser, Michael Flynn. Since then, Flynn has turned state’s evidence against the Trump administration.

Sessions was involved with the letter Trump wanted about Comey, which was part of the former FBI director’s firing.

Normally, the special counsel saves the top-level interviews for the end of an investigation, but this has been anything but normal.

A Justice Department spokesperson, Sarah Isgur Flores, confirmed that Sessions had been interviewed, according to The New York Times. This was the first time that Mueller’s team interviewed a member of the Trump cabinet.
