SHOW TRANSCRIPT

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told CNN on Friday that she has been interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller's team.

The interview is one of the final known interviews by the special counsel's team. Mueller's team conducted the interview late last year, around the same time the team met with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

Sanders said: "The President urged me, like he has everyone in the administration, to fully cooperate with the special counsel. I was happy to voluntarily sit down with them."

The White House didn't immediately agree to grant the special counsel's interview with Sanders. The administration opposed the special counsel's previous request to interview Kelly, as well. The focus of the interview is not currently known.
