Federal Bureau of Investigation investigates Trump associates who are believed to have links with Russian individuals and Russian companies, the Reuters reported on Monday.

“FBI counterintelligence agents based in Washington are pursuing leads from informants and foreign communications intercepts”, two of the sources told the information agency.

This counterintelligence inquiry includes but is not limited to examination of financial transactions by Russian individuals and companies who are believed to have links to Trump associates. The transactions under scrutiny involve investments by Russians in overseas entities that appear to have been undertaken through middlemen and front companies, two people briefed on the probe said.
