Donald Trump contradicted multiple official reports from White House staff saying the Russia investigation had nothing to do with Donald Trump firing FBI Director James Comey, who was in charge of the investigation at the time. In an NBC interview, Trump said of firing Comey: "I decided to just do it. I said to myself, I said, ‘You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story, it’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won."
