Davis, who claims her high-end prostitution ring served about 10,000 powerful figures in New York City, has repeatedly insisted she does not know about collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, the subject of Mueller's probe.

Davis, who was released from a two-year jail sentence in May 2016, has said she could not know about Russian collusion because she was in prison during most of Trump's presidential campaign. Davis was arrested for allegedly selling drugs to a federal informant.

Four sources told CNN last week that Mueller's team is interested in Davis's relationship with Stone. 

Stone last month said he is “probably” the unnamed person referenced in Mueller’s indictment against 12 Russian intelligence officers. Mueller's report mentions an individual "who was in regular contact with senior members of the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump” and exchanged Twitter messages with Guccifer 2.0, an online persona allegedly used by the Kremlin officials. 

"Kristin Davis is a long time friend and associate of mine," Stone said in a statement for CNN. "I am the Godfather to her 2 year-old son. She knows nothing about Russian Collusion, WikiLeaks collaboration or any other impropriety related to the 2016 election which I thought was the subject of this probe. I am highly confident she will testify truthfully if called upon to do so."
