Sources go on to tell ABC News as far as the White House is aware she never met with the special counsel during that time. Mueller’s team contacted the Trump legal team anytime they had a request to speak with an administration member.

It’s unclear when that alleged interview would have happened.
The special counsel has not responded to an ABC News request for comment.
