The US President faces ever growing pressure trying to work a way out of the government shutdown as Democrats home in on new reports of Russian influence.

A US Government committee will look into a New York Times report claiming the FBI investigated whether President Donald Trump has been working on behalf of Russia.

Democrats in control of the US House of Representatives say they'll look into reports the FBI thought Donald Trump was a Russian agent.

Donald Trump lashed out on Saturday following a New York Times report that the FBI had opened a probe in 2017 to determine if the president had been working, knowingly or unknowingly, on behalf of Russia.
