FBI’s James Comey Spotted at the White House

In the middle of an investigation into alleged ties between Donald Trump‘s presidential campaign and Russia, FBI Director James Comey was seen walking into the White House on Friday.

Comey’s visit to the White House lasted about one hour, CNN White House Reporter Jeremy Diamond said on Twitter.

The reason for the visit was because of a regular meeting, an FBI official told NBC News’ Peter Alexander.

The trip to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue comes four days after Comey testified in front of the House Intelligence Committee in relation to the ongoing investigation.

During the hearing, which lasted well over five hours, Comey confirmed that the FBI was investigating the Trump campaign and its aides for ties to Russia.

He also said that the agency has found “no evidence” supporting Trump’s claim that former President Barack Obama and his staff had Trump Tower wiretapped.

Earlier in the day Friday, it was reported that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort said he would speak with the House Intelligence Committee in regard to the Russia investigation.

According to multiple reports, Manafort received millions of dollars 10 years ago from a Russian oligarch to “advance the interests” of Russia and its President Vladimir Putin.

The chairman of the House intel committee Devin Nunes (R-California) said Thursday that Manafort’s lawyer offered for his client to come forward and answer questions about his foreign ties.

“We thank Mr. Manafort for volunteering and encourage others with knowledge of these issues to voluntarily interview with the committee,” Nunes said to reporters.

No formal meeting date has been set yet between the two.

PHOTOS: New Post-9/11 Images of the Pentagon Released by the FBI

The Pentagon following the attacks of September 11, 2001. (F.B.I.)

Shown smoldering with fire and heavy smoke after being hit by a hijacked commercial aircraft, new photographs released by the F.B.I. recently visualize the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack in Washington D.C.

The agency released the set of images from the moments after the 9/11 terrorist attack at the Pentagon that had never been seen before by the public eye.

Parts of the hijacked plane, American Airlines flight No. 77 are shown scattered around on the floor inside of the Pentagon the morning of September 11, 2001.

The terrorist attack at the Pentagon killed 125 people, and 2,996 people died from the attacks in total that day as a result of the attacks. More than 6,000 people were also wounded on 9/11.

The photos were released on the F.B.I. Vault, a database of media from the agency over the years.

There hadn’t been many photos or videos of the attack previously, except for surveillance footage at the Pentagon slowed down frame-by-frame as the plane struck the building.

Here are the stunning photos of the aftermath of 9/11 at the Pentagon:
