President Trump blasts report that, after the dismissal of James Comey, the FBI initiated a counter-intelligence investigation to see if the president might have been acting on behalf of Russia, dismisses any notion of wrongdoing surrounding 2017 Hamburg meeting with Vladimir Putin; chief Fox News’ White House correspondent John Roberts reports.
President Donald Trump reacted sharply to a New York Times report published Friday that said after he fired FBI Director James Comey, the bureau began to investigate whether Trump was “knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence.”
Trump also addressed the reports with Judge Jeanine Pirro.
“Are you now or have you ever worked for Russia, Mr. President?” Fox News host – and vocal Trump supporter – Jeanine Pirro asked Trump during a phone interview Saturday night.
“I think it’s the most insulting thing I’ve ever been asked,” Trump replied. “I think it’s the most insulting article I’ve ever had written. And if you read the article, you’d see that they found absolutely nothing.”
