US stocks closed higher but pared gains after fresh news reports stoked the political controversy surrounding Donald Trump.

The New York Times reported that the president told Russian officials earlier this month that former FBI director James Comey was “crazy, a real nut job” and said that firing him had relieved “great pressure” on Mr Trump.

Meanwhile, the Washington Post reported that a senior White House advisor had been identified by the FBI as a “person of interest” in its probe into possible collusion between Russia and Mr Trump’s presidential campaign.

The Dow Jones index gained 0.69% to 20,804.84, the S&P 500 climbed 0.68% to 2,381.73, and the Nasdaq was up 0.47% at 6,083.70.

Shares in industrials, financials and energy performed well, buoyed by a rise in commodities prices.
