President Donald Trump's former chief of staff Reince Priebus and White House counsel Don McGahn have both hired a lawyer to advise them in connection to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling, Law360 reported on Sunday.

The two have both retained the services of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP partner William Burck.

The hiring of Burck follows a report on Friday in The Washington Post that Mueller told the White House that his team wants to interview six current and former advisers, including Priebus and McGahn, in connection to the probe.

Law360 reported that Priebus will be questioned about Donald Trump Jr’s meeting last June with a Russian lawyer, while McGahn will be asked about the president’s firing earlier this year of FBI Director James Comey.

Mueller’s investigation has already impaneled a grand jury, and the FBI raided in July the home of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort in Virginia, the Washington Examiner reported.
