Russia's Lavrov says he did not discuss Comey with Trump: Interfax

Russia's Lavrov says he did not discuss Comey with Trump: InterfaxRussian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Saturday he had not discussed the firing of the former FBI Director James Comey with U.S. President Donald Trump, Interfax news agency reported. “We did not touch this issue at all,” Interfax quoted Lavrov as saying. The New York Times has reported that Trump told Lavrov and Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak at a White House meeting last week that firing Comey relieved “great pressure” the president faced from a law-enforcement probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
