Wash Post; Someone at White House is of signicant interest to FBI

Guardian - The FBI investigation into ties between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russian officials has reached the White House, according to a damaging new report on Friday.

The Washington Post reported that investigators have identified a current White House official as a significant person of interest, according to people familiar with the matter. The individual is described as someone who is “close to the president”.

In a statement, White House press secretary Sean Spicer did not deny the report, saying simply: “As the President has stated before – a thorough investigation will confirm that there was no collusion between the campaign and any foreign entity.”
