Sen. Burr asked FBI Director McCabe if former FBI Director James Comey told President Trump that he wasn't the subject of an ongoing FBI investigation.

Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe told the Senate Intelligence Committee that he would not comment on any conversation that former FBI Director James Comey might have had with President Trump during a hearing on Thursday.

Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) asked McCabe if he had ever heard Director Comey tell President Trump that he was not the subject of an investigation.

“Sir, I can’t comment on any conversations the director may have had with the president,” McCabe told Burr.

The FBI is currently investigating the possibility of collusion between the Trump’s campaign and Russian officials.

In President Trump’s letter dismissing Comey, Trump claimed that Comey had on three separate occasions told the president that he was not a part of this investigation.
