Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been a bit of an enigma in the world of Washington politics as of late, supposedly nearing the end of his wild Russiagate investigation, while remaining nearly entirely off the radar of the mainstream media.
Here and there, a dribble of information will leak, about who did what, and who’s talking to who, but for the most part these maneuvers involve tertiary characters such as Roger Stone and Jerome Corsi.
And let’s not forget that those men have quite the history of nonsense behind them, with Corsi being the “DC Bureau Chief” for conspiracy-peddler Alex Jones, and Stone having a tattoo of Richard Nixon’s face on his back inspired by his time on that infamous team.
Now, however, it looks as though Mueller is moving into the West Wing with his inquisitions, nabbing an interview with one of the White House’s most well-spoken and fearsome personalties.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders acknowledged on Friday that she’s been interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office.
“The President urged me, like he has everyone in the administration, to fully cooperate with the special counsel. I was happy to voluntarily sit down with them,” she said in a statement. Sanders has been critical of the Mueller investigation, echoing her boss’s contention that it’s a “witch hunt.”
The interview, which was first reported by CNN, took place late last year, around the same time then-White House Chief of Staff John Kelly met with investigators from Mueller’s office, a source familiar with the matter told NBC News. The White House initially pushed back against the request to interview Kelly, but later agreed to a limited line of questioning, three people with knowledge of the matter told CNN.
Sanders has been described as a “bulldog” by us before, having taken up the mantle of Press Secretary with a gusto unlike any of her predecessors.
It will be interesting to see exactly how she weirded her formidable tongue during her time in front of the witch hunters.
