Sessions interviewed by Mueller team

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team as its probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election continues, CBS News' Paula Reid reports.

Reid reports that Sessions was interviewed last week in the probe. Sessions was questioned for several hours, the New York Times first reported. The interview is the first known meeting between Mueller's team and a Trump White House cabinet official as it looks for possible ties between Russian entities and the Trump campaign or its associates.

Sessions had previously come under fire for misleading Congress on his knowledge of contacts between Trump associates and the Russian government over the course of the 2016 campaign. In March, he recused himself from the government's Russia investigation.
