President Donald Trump plans to meet on Tuesday with former Director James Comey and FBI agents who are leading an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election, according to White House officials.
Trump is expected to discuss his administration’s response to the FBI probe, which began last month, with Comey and former acting Attorney General Sally Yates, the officials said.
Trump has been under pressure to acknowledge the Russia investigation and the possibility that he obstructed justice.
He’s also said he doesn’t believe his attorney general should recuse herself from the Russia probe.
Comey and Yates are part of a team that is investigating whether there was any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials during the 2016 presidential campaign.
The White House declined to comment on whether the president would meet with Comey or Yates.
The meeting will be part of the president’s trip to Asia, where he will be visiting Japan, South Korea and China.
Trump was scheduled to travel to Japan and South Korea on Tuesday.
