President Donald Trump has denied that he is a secret agent for Russia, after a report that the FBI investigated that possibility in 2017.
A day after the New York Times filed the claim, Jeany's Pirro of Fox New asked Trump in an interview on Saturday night with the question: "Are you or have you ever worked for Russia, Mr. President? & # 39;
& # 39; I find it most insulting that I was asked, & # 39; Trump replied. I think this is the most insulting article I've ever written. & # 39;
& # 39; It was a big insult and the New York Times is a disaster like a newspaper, & # 39; Trump said.
Trump called Jeanine Pirro Jeanette on Saturday night to deny that he is a secret agent of Russia after a New York Times report that the FBI investigated the possibility
Referring to unspecified former law enforcement officials, the Times reported that the FBI opened the combined criminal and counter-espionage survey in Trump in May 2017.
Trump fired Comey on May 9, 2017, referring to a letter from Deputy Prosecutor General Rod Rosenstein that sharply criticized Hillary Clinton's e-mail investigation by Comey.
The FBI, however, became concerned because Trump acted on behalf of the Russian interests by shooting Comey.
Trump rejected the idea in Saturday's interview, but without ever denying that he worked as a secret agent for Russia.
Trump said he had fired Comey because he was a terrible liar, and he did a terrible job as the director of the FBI. & # 39;
& # 39; And of course nothing has been found, & # 39; Trump said about the alleged investigation.

No evidence has come to public attention in the 20 months since Comey was dismissed, indicating that Trump is a secret agent, or that he is guilty of a criminal conspiracy with the Russian government.
"I can tell you this, if you ask the people in Russia, I have been tougher against Russia than anyone else," Trump said.
