Skip to comments.FBI, 5 other agencies probe possible covert Kremlin aid to Trump
Posted on 01/18/2017 2:45:29 PM PST by Mariner
The FBI and five other law enforcement and intelligence agencies have collaborated for months in an investigation into Russian attempts to influence the November election, including whether money from the Kremlin covertly aided President-elect Donald Trump, two people familiar with the matter said.
The agencies involved in the inquiry are the FBI, the CIA, the National Security Agency, the Justice Department, the Treasury Departments Financial Crimes Enforcement Network and representatives of the director of national intelligence, the sources said.
Investigators are examining how money may have moved from the Kremlin to covertly help Trump win, the two sources said. One of the allegations involves whether a system for routinely paying thousands of Russian-American pensioners may have been used to pay some email hackers in the United States or to supply money to intermediaries who would then pay the hackers, the two sources said.
The informal, inter-agency working group began to explore possible Russian interference last spring, long before the FBI received information from a former British spy hired to develop politically damaging and unverified research about Trump, according to the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the inquiry.

Who is it Boris??
And there sits the Clinton Foundation stuffed full of foreign country donations......nothing to see there.
So now we see Brennen’s team leaks fake stories to the Sacramento Bee.
No wonder Hillary has gotten away with being a traitor,the whole freakin intelligence apparatus of the United States Of America has been chasing Trump and not the witch and her crooked husband.
Trump had better watch his back,this has gotten out of hand
I think this article just said that Russian-Americans have been spied on by the Intel agencies for months.
I wonder if money moved from Mexico to Mexican-Americans who then donated to any kind of Hillary effort whatsoever?
I’m sure the Intel agencies were right on top of that.
Right after they conclude their investigation they will begin investigating the foreign money filtered through Obama’s campaign website and after that they’ll look into Soros.
They’ve investigated this longer than they did Hillary’s emails.
this article makes a small blurb about the headline, then the rest of the article is about rehashing the fake news.
How to get started on the wrong foot with the new boss!
Trump has some heavy lifting ahead of him when he gets started on ridding the “intelligence” bureaucracies of the ultra-leftists, muslims, muslim enablers, Obamabots and other subversives.
Trump won. Someone send these morons a memo.
Sacramento Bee is located in the sovereign State of COW.
Kill the investigation on Friday.
Fire all agents involved.
Destroy all documents they may have ‘created.’
They couldn't have cared less, re the Clintons ( yes, both of them ) ILLEGAL donations, nor Obama's, but they're using microscopes to try to undo Trump's election, when HE donated most of the money to himself, throughout the primary season and most of the election season?
President trump; needs to fire the lot of these POS!
Bastards ALL! And why have they not probed Palestinian phone banks raising untraceable money for Obama? Saudi money for Clinton? German money for Clinton? Guzmans Sinaloa cartel money for Clinton?
Our federal law enforcement and intelligence community is utterly corrupt.
Yeah. sacbee is always the go-to source for unbiased reporting. Yeah.
Show the evidence that there is evidence to be examined?
* politically damaging and unverified research about Trump, according to the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity *
unverified/anonymous = BS! Thanks for playing, but you lose...
SPOT ON !
Hell yea, those dummies couldn’t even find a connection to hillary and any foreigner. How in hell are they going to find anything on Trump. If they do find anything it will be made up. I think the “golden shower dossier” was their last gasp to stave off The Donald.
