Trump Denies Asking Comey to Drop Flynn Investigation

President Donald Trump denied asking FBI Director James Comey to drop an investigation targeting his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

During a news conference at the White House Thursday, Trump rejected any suggestions that he tried to interfere with the investigation. He assailed the FBI probe, saying that it unfairly targets him.

“The entire thing has been a witch hunt,” Trump said. “I think it divides the country.”
