The Trump administration officials who are known to have given interviews to Mueller

Several of these witnesses are still working in senior positions at the White House, while others have moved on from the Trump administration after tumultuous or short-lived tenures.
CNN previously reported that some of these officials are worried that the Mueller report could reveal what they told the special counsel about internal White House happenings. These current and former officials fret that this could earn the ire of Trump, who prizes loyalty.
The Justice Department is expected to release a redacted version of Mueller’s nearly 400-page report on Thursday.
Here’s a list of the Trump administration officials known to have given interviews to Mueller. His team interviewed about 500 witnesses, so this list provides a small slice of the investigation. In addition to the 19 officials named on this list, another six officials from the White House counsel’s office provided voluntary interviews to the special counsel, Trump’s legal team revealed last year. Those officials haven’t been publicly identified.
