Trump asked Comey if he was under investigation

(NBC News) President Donald Trump, in an exclusive interview Thursday with NBC News’ Lester Holt, called ousted FBI chief James Comey a “showboat” and revealed he asked Comey whether he was under investigation for alleged ties to Russia.

“I actually asked him” if I were under investigation, Trump said, noting that he spoke with Comey once over dinner and twice by phone.

“I said, if it’s possible would you let me know, am I under investigation? He said, ‘You are not under investigation.’”

“I know I’m not under investigation,” Trump told Holt during the 31-minute White House interview.
