Sen. Jack Reed: Trump Will Be Grilled by Special Counsel

Sen. Jack Reed said Friday he expects President Donald Trump to be deposed by former FBI chief Robert Mueller, the special counsel appointed by the Justice Department to probe Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election and whether the Trump campaign was involved.

"I think that's ultimately what will happen," Reed, a Rhode Island Democrat, told CNN's Wolf Blitzer.

"Because in the course of these investigations … part of this … goes to the rationale for the firing behind [former FBI Director James] Comey — and the rationale of trying to deflect, if not stop, the investigation of [former national security adviser Michael] Flynn involves to some degree the president.

"I would expect at some point, not right away, but at some point, that Mr. Mueller would feel he has to depose the president."

On Thursday, Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee that Trump asked him to stop the investigation into Flynn's contacts with Russia. Comey was later fired by Trump.
