Mueller also wants to learn more about Trump reportedly asking Comey to drop the FBI’s investigation into Flynn, which Trump called a "Comey lie."

The special counsel is also interested in Trump's outreach to lawmakers about congressional investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, CNN reported.

Mueller is conducting a criminal investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Trump said Wednesday he is willing to speak with Mueller as part of the investigation, and willing to do so under oath. He told reporters that he expects the interview to occur in the next two to three weeks, but said his lawyers are still determining the specifics.

Mueller declined to comment to The Hill.

CNN reported earlier Wednesday that Mueller intends to speak to former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon about Comey and Flynn as well.

Mueller’s investigation has thus far led to two indictments and two guilty pleas.
