Trump: Firing FBI chief 'eased pressure'

US President Donald Trump told Russian officials firing FBI director James Comey eased “great pressure”, US media report.

Citing a document summarising the meeting, the New York Times said Mr Trump called Mr Comey a “real nut job”.

Mr Comey had been running an inquiry into possible collusion between Russia and Donald Trump’s election campaign.

The White House has not disputed the report.

Meanwhile, the Washington Post reported that a current White House official is a significant person of interest in the investigation into links between the Trump campaign and Russia.

The White House has denied there was collusion between the campaign and any “foreign entity”.
