Almost a year ago, President Donald Trump fired the director of the FBI, James Comey.

A controversial move that set in motion developments that continue to reverberate across Washington.

Now, Friday's dismissal of Comey's former deputy, Andrew McCabe, is raising further questions.

McCabe says his firing is part of Trump's continuing "war on the FBI". He also revealed that he had kept notes about his meetings with Trump.

These memos have now been given to the Special Counsel Robert Mueller - who is looking into possible Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Trump has called them "fake memos".

So, how will this affect the Mueller investigation?
