Mueller Had No Interest In Bannon Until Book

A lawyer close to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation told the Daily Beast that before the release of Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury, the special counsel’s  team indicated “zero interest” in questioning President Trump’s former chief strategist Stephen Bannon for their Russia probe.

Bannon himself told Wolff that he didn’t expect to hear from Mueller: “I know no Russians, I don’t know nothin’ about nothin. I’m not being a witness. I’m not hiring a lawyer.”

He’s now  expected to talk with the special counsel’s team by the end of the month.
