The FBI hasn’t given up on their investigation regarding Russia and their potential hack of US data to influence the 2016 elections. In fact, they are launching three different probes to address the potential cyber attack brought on by Putin. Pittsburgh is focusing on the breach of sensitive email information obtained from the National Democratic Party during the elections. San Francisco is chasing those who call themselves “Guccifer 2,” as well as stolen emails used to sabotage the party. The Washington office is turning their attention towards potential informants and foreign communication intercepts that may have contained sensitive and classified information.
All this despite Trump’s continued denial of involvement and contact with Russia during the campaign trail, and even now while president. The latest accusation comes after a report that investigations regarding illegal financial activities by Russia connected to Donald Trump are being brought to light. The “front companies” used to launder money, have connections to Deutsche Bank in Germany, which has been linked to 1.3 billion dollars worth of business capital venture debt and Trump. Republican Roy Blunt confirmed that Flynn’s information would come to light, stating that, “Everybody, including the president, is well served if anybody that reasonably should be asked to provide information to the committee, including testimony, testifies,” he said. “I think we can be a long way down the road in 90 days.”
Originally Trump called the investigation a “witch hunt” back in early January. Now, just over one month later, Trump is eerily quiet on the subject—something the president is not known for when it comes to big news. Are his advisors telling him to stay away from the topic? Or does the president have something to worry about as the FBI investigation continues to expand and develop?
