Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, making him the first known member of President Donald Trump’s cabinet to be interviewed as part of the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The New York Times reports that Sessions was questioned by Mueller’s team recently both as part of the Russia probe and as part of a probe to determine if Trump obstructed justice when he fired former FBI Director James Comey last year. According to the Times, Sessions was questioned for “several hours.”
