The interview took place Monday and lasted more than an hour, according to reporter Yashar Ali.

Dmitry Gorin, Griffin's criminal defense attorney, said she was simply exercising her constitutional rights, and she intends to fully cooperate with the investigation.
“She basically exercised her First Amendment rights to tell a joke,” Gorin told The New York Times. “When you look at everything in the media, all the times entertainers make videos or express themselves in other ways, you’ve never seen an entertainer, let alone a comedian, be subject to a criminal investigation.”
Griffin lost several endorsements and her New Year's Eve gig on CNN over the controversial photo.
She tearfully apologized last month, saying that she felt her career was now over and that Trump "broke" her.
