The special counsel's interviews with the senior officials will likely focus on Trump's firing of Comey and what motivated him.
Comey's testimony comes only a day after two Trump Administration intelligence officials, Director National Intelligence Dan Coats and NSA Advisor Michael Rogers, refused to answer questions regarding conversations they had with President Trump, about the Russian Federation investigation during a separate hearing before the Select Intelligence Committee on June 7.
The White House press office, Trump's personal attorney, Marc Kasowitz and Mueller's office didn't immediately respond to CNBC's emailed requests for comment, which were sent outside of office hours.
US President Donald Trump is being investigated for possible obstruction of justice by the special counsel appointed to probe alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential polls, according to a media report. Said political analyst Nate Silver on the fivethirtyeight.com website: "The President, less than five months into his term in office, is being investigated for obstruction of justice".
"I think he's looking for information that would bolster the case that Comey made publicly and in his memos - that he believed Trump had directed him to drop the investigation into Michael Flynn, who was President Trump's first national security adviser".
BARRETT: Right. And if you think back to Comey's testimony, he says pretty clearly that he believes his firing was an attempt to change the course of the Russian Federation investigation. Former FBI director James Comey assured him three times that he was not. Trump disputed, though, Comey's assertion he had asked for a pledge of loyalty.
CNN has been trying to get the Federal Bureau of Investigation to turn over copies of former director James Comey's memos that he prepared after conversations with President Donald Trump.
"While the president has the right to, he has no intention to do so", Sarah Sanders, a White House spokesman said.

On Wednesday night, a spokesman for Trump's lawyer did not refute the notion that Trump was under examination but decried what he said were leaks that led to the story.
Regardless of the outcome, the specter of Mueller examining the possibility of obstruction of justice appeared to be a new blow to Trump, whose first five months in office have been clouded by the federal and congressional probes into the Russian Federation issue. "The investigation has been cloaked in secrecy, and it is unclear how many others have been questioned by the FBI", it said. But frankly, it could be dawning on some Republicans that letting Mueller actually proceed with the investigation takes the heat off them to do anything.
On Tuesday, Mueller met with senators on the Senate Intelligence Committee in a classified briefing on Capitol Hill. Reporter Tony Mauro noted the addition of Dreeben may signal that "Mueller may be seeking advice on complex areas of criminal law, including what constitutes obstruction of justice".
