Mueller’s latest target in Russia probe: RNC staffers


Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team will begin questioning various Republican National Committee (RNC) staffers regarding the Party’s digital apparatus that aided the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election.

A Wednesday report from Yahoo claims Mueller’s team is looking into the combined effort by the Party and the campaign to reach out to voters in key swing states. Sources told the news outlet that Mueller wants to determine if the digital efforts are related to possible Russian interferences seeking to influence American voters.

So far, in the probe, Mueller has questioned President Trump‘s former chief of staff Reince Priebus, former press secretary Sean Spicer and current communications director Hope Hicks.

In October, Mueller issued charges against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business associate, Richard Gates.

General Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his foreign contacts earlier this month and is said to be fully cooperating with Mueller’s investigation.
