President Donald Trump on Monday said he had “never” worked for Russia. Trump’s denial came on the heels of a NY Times report that the FBI in 2017 opened an investigation into whether he had fallen under the influence of the Kremlin. Special counsel Robert Mueller is continuing to investigation Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
