Spicer: Nobody In White House Has Been Interviewed As Part Of FBI Probe

March 20, 2017 2:10 p.m.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Monday that he is not aware of anyone in President Donald Trump’s administration who has been interviewed by the FBI as part of its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

“Has anyone from the White House, up to the President, been interviewed by the FBI as part of this investigation?” Associated Press reporter Julie Pace asked Spicer at his daily briefing.

“Not that I’m aware of,” Spicer said.

FBI Director James Comey on Monday confirmed to the House Intelligence Committee that his agency is conducting an ongoing investigation into whether members of Trump’s campaign coordinated with the Russian government before the 2016 election.

“There is NO EVIDENCE of a Trump-Russia scandal,” a White House official told TPM in an email. “There is NO EVIDENCE of Trump-Russia collusion.”
