White House downplays aides’ roles

Trump seeks to distance himself from Russia probe
White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters Monday that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was a “volunteer of the campaign” during President Donald Trump’s run for the White House.
Comey confirms Russia probe

WASHINGTON – FBI Director James Comey confirmed Monday that the bureau is investigating possible links and coordination between Russia and associates of President Donald Trump as part of a broader probe of Russian interference in last year’s presidential campaign.
The extraordinary revelation, and the first public confirmation of the wider investigation that began last summer, came in a congressional hearing examining Russian meddling and possible connections between Moscow and Trump’s campaign.
In a bruising five-hour session, the FBI director also rejected the new president’s claim that his predecessor had wiretapped his New York skyscraper, and he corrected, in real time, the president’s Monday tweets about his testimony.
Comey noted that the FBI does not ordinarily discuss ongoing investigations, but he said he’d been authorized to do so given the extreme public interest in this case.
