Investigators had asked the National Front leader to testify about the employment conditions of her bodyguard and chief of staff, said to have been paid with Parliament funds to work for the national party, against the assembly's rules. She described France under her governance as a champion of "oppressed people, which speaks out for the voiceless and carries something powerful and great".
Her lawyer said Friday that Le Pen would talk to police only after the April-May election.
A recent Ifop survey found Macron would beat National Front party leader Marine Le Pen in the May run-off voting with 61 percent against 39 percent if they both make it to the second round.
Femen said on Facebook that "nothing in Marine Le Pen's programme promotes the emancipation of women".
White supremacists including Duke, a former Ku Klux Klan imperial wizard, enthusiastically supported Trump in the 2016 United States presidential race. Legier was later released without being put under formal investigation.

Unfortunately for Australia's young workers, our country has the lowest youth wage compared to minimum wage, in the world. Ms Petterson said she paid her staff above the current award but said higher rates hampered growth for some businesses.
Last month, she said that she would not completely take France out of the euro, the European Union common currency, but that she would create a "national currency" for the people, while a common currency would still be used by states and worldwide companies. Ms Le Pen was said to have produced a false employment contract on behalf of Ms Griset, a long-time friend, as part of the money-spinning arrangement.
Not surprisingly, Le Pen had warm words for Donald Trump; she was among the first foreign politicians to hail his November victory, even before it was formally announced.
"I will not respond [to the summons] during the election campaign", said Le Pen on Friday. Le Pen has called for France to leave the European Union and the euro. Fillon would get 57 percent to Le Pen's 43 percent in the May 7 second round, it showed.
Influential centrist Francois Bayrou on Wednesday decided not to run in the French election and struck an alliance with candidate Emmanuel Macron that may boost the latter's chances in the tight race. She wants to take France out of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military alliance, the Euro, and probably out of the EU. However, she has been under fire over the cost of her "national currency" proposal and accusations of fake jobs in the European Parliament. Adding to European concerns, far-right Dutch candidate Geert Wilders, another EU basher, is similarly coasting in the polls ahead of March elections in the Netherlands. Republican Francois Fillon would allow the deficit to increase to 3.7 percent this year and remain above 3 percent in 2018 as he cuts taxes, falling below the symbolic threshold in 2019.
