U.S. House Democrats eye reported FBI probe of Trump

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A U.S. House of Representatives committee will look into a news media report that the FBI investigated whether President Donald Trump has been working on behalf of Russia, against U.S. interests, the panel’s Democratic chairman said on Saturday.

The New York Times reported that the probe began in the days after Trump fired James Comey as FBI director in May 2017 and said the agency’s counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether Trump’s actions constituted a possible threat to national security.
