WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday, without offering any evidence, accused NBC News of “fudging” his May 2017 interview that came days after he fired then FBI Director James Comey and in which he cited the federal Russia investigation.

Representatives for NBC News, which is part of Comcast Corp, could not be immediately reached for comment.
