Reports indicate, US President Donald Trump asked FBI chief James Comey to end an inquiry into links between his ex-national security adviser and Russia.

"I hope you can let this go," President Trump had told Comey after a White House meeting in February, according to a memo written by the ex-FBI director.

According to US media, the memo was written immediately after the meeting, a day after Michael Flynn resigned.

The White House has denied the report in a statement.
