>> US Attorney General Jeff Sessions was questioned by a special prosecutor investigating possible collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign. The Department of Justice on Tuesday confirmed that Sessions met with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office for the first time last week. Trump on Tuesday said he was not concerned by the development.
00:00:23
>> No, I didn't, but I'm not at all concerned.>> But the meeting marks the first time Mueller's team has interviewed a member of Trump's cabinet. Reuters correspondent, Sarah Lynch, covers the Justice Department.>> We don't know exactly what Mueller asked Jeff Sessions during what was apparently hours of questioning, but we would look at a couple of key areas.
00:00:41
For starters, he had several meetings when he was working for Trump's campaign with the former Russian Ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, which he did not disclose. And that's become quite an issue in Congress, where he's been accused of perhaps lying to Congress about that. So that would be one area.
00:00:57
The meetings that he had with Kislyak, what was discussed, and the fact that they weren't disclosed, and why.>> Investigators may also be interested in Trump's decision to fire FBI Director, James Comey.>> I think we're also looking at the obstruction of justice case involving the president and whether he intended to try to disrupt or stop the investigation into Russian collusion with the campaign, allegedly, by firing Comey.
00:01:19
We know that Jeff Sessions played a key role in helping to draft the memo that was used to justify Comey's firing.>> Trump has vehemently denied allegations his campaign worked with Moscow to win the election.>> There has been no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians, or Trump and Russians, no collusion.
00:01:38
Thank you all very much.>> Thanks everybody.>> The Washington Post, on Tuesday, reported Mueller may seek an interview with Trump himself in the weeks to come.
