Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators have reportedly finished interviewing all White House Staff in the probe over Russian Collusion. Officials believe this may signify the investigation is coming to an appropriate end.
LA Times reported: Investigators working for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III have finished interviewing White House officials, according to Ty Cobb, an attorney on President Trump’s legal team.
“All the White House interviews are over,” Cobb said in an interview on Tuesday, adding that the Trump camp hopes the special counsel’s office brings its probe to “a prompt and appropriate conclusion.”
A spokesman for the special counsel’s office declined to comment. Mueller was appointed earlier this year to examine whether anyone from Trump’s team coordinated with Russia’s interference in last year’s campaign.
Cobb represents the White House and helped arrange interviews with the special counsel’s team. He declined to say when the last one took place or which administration officials were questioned.
His insistence that the investigation could wrap up soon has prompted criticism in the past. Rep. Adam Schiff of Burbank, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, previously called the idea “complete fiction.”
“I can see why that would be political wishful thinking on the part of the White House, but I don’t see how it would be possible,” he said.
