Robert Mueller, the special counsel leading the Department of Justice's Russia probe, is looking to speak with White House officials — including former chief of staff Reince Priebus — as he continues to probe whether President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russia.

The New York Times cites three sources who said Mueller is in talks with the White House regarding his desire to speak with current and former members of the White House staff.

Priebus, the former head of the Republican National Committee, worked as Trump's chief of staff until his ouster last month.

The Times reports that Mueller is particularly interested in Trump's firing of FBI director James Comey in May and, presumably, whether he was trying to derail the bureau's Russia probe. Mueller himself led the FBI from 2001-2013.

Mueller has requested from the White House information pertaining to specific meetings that have taken place, the Times reports.

Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort finds himself a target of Mueller's investigation as well. His home in Alexandria, Va. was the subject of a pre-dawn FBI raid last month, and this week he changed up his legal team.
