Le F.B.I. refuse de laisser tomber le dossier des relations entre Trump et la Russie

L'administration Trump aurait demandé au F.B.I. de mettre de côté les histoires récentes qui lient l'entourage de Donald Trump à la Russie. Les liens directs entre une administration et le F.B.I. ne sont pas fréquents.

 "The discussions between the White House and the bureau began with FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus on the sidelines of a separate White House meeting the day after the stories were published, according to a U.S. law enforcement official.

A White House official disputes that account, saying that McCabe called Priebus early that morning and said The New York Times story vastly overstates what the FBI knows about the contacts. The White House official said that Priebus later reached out again to McCabe and to FBI Director James Comey asking for the FBI to at least talk to reporters on background to dispute the stories. A law enforcement official says McCabe didn't discuss aspects of the case but wouldn't say exactly what McCabe told Priebus."
