FBI probed whether Trump was working for Moscow - NYT


The White House has condemned a New York Times report that the FBI opened an inquiry into whether President Trump was secretly working for Russia, BBC reports.

Law enforcement officials became concerned by Mr Trump's behaviour in May 2017, when he sacked FBI director James Comey, the paper says.

The investigation reportedly examined whether Mr Trump was a national security threat.

Mr Trump said there was no reason and no proof for setting up such a probe.
