    Andrew McCabe, acting FBI director, has disputed the White House's assertion that James Comey was fired in part because he had lost the confidence of the FBI's rank and file.

    US President Donald Trump fired Comey, the former FBI head, saying he had left the domestic intelligence and security service in “virtual turmoil”.

    Al Jazeera’s James Bays reports from Washington, DC.
