FBI Director James Comey was at the White House on Friday, days after he confirmed his bureau is investigating ties between associates of President Trump and Russia.
The White House said Comey visited to attend a “routine interagency meeting,” but did not say with whom he met.
No meeting with Comey was listed on the president's public schedule. Comey was spotted leaving the White House less than an hour later after television cameras showed him entering the West Wing.
The director on Monday made a bombshell revelation during testimony before the House Intelligence Committee that the FBI is probing whether members of Trump's presidential campaign and transition team cooperated with Moscow’s efforts to meddle in the 2016 election.

The FBI director's last known visit to the White House came two days after Trump’s inauguration, when the president warmly shook his hand at a reception for first responders and law enforcement officials.
