Sources told CNN on Tuesday that Mueller has indicated interest in questioning President Donald Trump about his dismissals of former FBI Director James Comey and former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
President Trump on Tuesday addressed reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has testified before Robert Mueller's special counsel, and that Sessions, upon his request, had pressured FBI Director Christopher Wray to force out FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
When President Trump fired Acting Attorney General Sally Yates over her refusal to defend his travel ban, Boente took over and said he would defend the measure.
President Donald Trump asked the acting Federal Bureau of Investigation director who he voted for in the presidential election during an introductory meeting in May 2017, and criticized his wife over her political campaign, the Washington Post reported Tuesday.
The Justice Department confirmed that Dana Boente, the outgoing U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia who has also been acting as head of the department's national security division, will become the FBI's general counsel.
Just as word was getting out about Sessions' testimony, news broke that Comey had spoken with special counsel investigators past year. Sessions recused himself from the FBI's Russian Federation probe, to Mr. Trump's great frustration.

McCabe recently announced he plans to retire by March. "He did not even a little bit".
Last year, Trump suggested Sessions should have fired McCabe, whom the president described as "a Comey friend who was in charge of Clinton investigation but got.big dollars ($700,000) for his wife's political run from Hillary Clinton and her representatives". He replaces James A Baker, an ally of Comey's who was reassigned in December.
The administration says the decision is part of Mr. Trump's pledge to put American companies and jobs first.

Trump on Tuesday kept up his Twitter pressure on the nation's premier law enforcement agency, noting that FBI officials have admitted that they can not locate thousands of text messages between two senior officials accused of displaying anti-Trump bias in their work on investigations involving the president. But Trump has made no secret of his desire to use independent agencies to pummel his political enemies, saying in a November radio interview that he was "very frustrated" with the F.B.I.'s failure to investigate the Obama administration's Uranium One deal, but that unfortunately "as a president you're not supposed to be involved in that process".
