U.S. President Donald Trump, who is under pressure after abruptly firing FBI chief James Comey, insisted on Thursday that he is not under the FBI radar in connection with an inquiry into an alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian agencies.

Trump, who slammed Comey as a “showboat,” claimed that the former FBI director had told him that he was not under investigation, writes Reuters.

Trump, who recently called “the Russia-Trump collusion story a hoax and taxpayer funded charade” in his tweet, apparently shifted from his line saying that he wants the inquiry “speeded up” to figure out if there was a problem with the election, notes the BBC.
