Trump – Russia

The F-B-I’s Trump-Russia investigation has reportedly moved into the White House, as the president heads overseas.

The Washington Post reports a senior Trump adviser is now considered a “person of interest” in the probe into possible co-ordination between the election campaign and Russia.

Meantime, the New York Times reports the president told Russian officials he felt the dismissal of F-B-I Director James Comey relieved “great pressure” on him.

And the Senate Intelligence Committee has announced that Comey has agreed to testify at an open hearing.

All of this comes as Trump makes his first overseas trip as president, beginning in Saudi Arabia today.

Air Force One touched down in Riyadh this morning after an overnight flight from Washington.
