US White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said on Friday she had been interviewed by the special counsel investigating Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Reuters reported.

"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 him," Sanders said in a statement provided to Reuters. 

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating the allegations and whether anyone in Trump's campaign may have colluded with Russia. He is also looking into whether Trump may have tried to obstruct the investigation, according to Reuters.
