White House says Trump lost confidence in Comey
The White House says the US president Donald Trump had been considering firing the FBI director, James Comey, since he was elected. "He wasn't doing a good job," is the only comment Mr Trump's made so far. His press team have given more - they say that everyone, from FBI staff upwards, had lost confidence in Mr Comey. Trump's opponents think it's more to do with the FBI's investigation into what ties there are between the Trump administration and Russia.
