President Donald Trump's former press secretary, Sean Spicer, was interviewed Monday by special counsel Robert Mueller's team, said two people familiar with the matter.

In an interview with last month, when asked about the Russian Federation investigation by ABC News' Paula Faris, Spicer provided a consistent response to repeated questions on the subject: "I'm not gonna discuss that issue at all".

Mueller's investigators are looking for documents and emails relating to the dismissals of national security adviser Michael Flynn and FBI Director James Comey, according to sources familiar with the matter.

Mueller is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and whether there was any collusion between Trump's campaign and Vladimir Putin's government.

Reporters at the time were scrambling to get clarity about Trump's position on Comey after Trump said the day before that the FBI director had given Hillary Clinton a "free pass" in the investigation of her use of a private email server.

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer answers a question during a media briefing on June 20, 2017. Last week, former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus was interviewed and investigators recently interviewed Keith Kellogg, executive secretary of National Security Council.

"Mr. Priebus was voluntarily interviewed by Special Counsel Mueller's team today", attorney William Burck told Fox News last week.

Other former and current White House staffers expected to speak with Mueller's team include White House counsel Don McGahn and communications director Hope Hicks.
