Two days ago, The New York Times ran a report claiming that President Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey to drop the agency’s investigation into former national security adviser Mike Flynn.

“It would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something that — without an appropriate purpose.

“It’s not happened in my experience.”
