Phone calls intercepted by American intelligence show that campaign staffers and other associates of President Donald Drumpf had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials during last year’s presidential campaign, according to a report published by The New York Times last night.
The call logs and intercepted communications are now included in a large trove of information that the F.B.I. is sifting through as it investigates links between Trump associates and the Russian government.
The phone calls were intercepted at around the same time that law enforcement and intelligence agencies were searching for evidence that Russia was trying to disrupt the American elections. The investigators have sought to determine whether the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians on its efforts to influence the election. The Times said that the officials they interviewed have seen no evidence of cooperation so far.
The F.B.I. investigation is proceeding at the same time as separate investigations in Congress into Russian interference in the election. There was no immediate comment from the White House on the report, which was published late yesterday evening.
WOW!! Can you say – TREASON?!
