WASHINGTON — The standoff between President Donald Trump and his former FBI director intensified with the news of James Comey’s memo saying that Trump asked him to shut down the agency’s investigation into ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn.

A person who had seen the memo told The Associated Press what Comey had written. The person was not authorized to discuss the memo by name and spoke on condition of anonymity. The existence of the memo was first reported by The New York Times.

The White House denied the account.
