House Democrats Request an FBI Probe Into Trump’s Possible Connections to Russian Hackers

(Before It's News)

It must be an election year.

Then again, valid, considering his past… and not so past… ties.

Democrat members of the House are asking the FBI to investigate Donald Trump’s links to Russia and the possibility that he may be involved in the recent DNC hacks that caused so much trouble going into the DNC convention.

The ranking members of the House committees on oversight and government reform, judiciary, foreign affairs, and homeland security sent a letter to FBI Director James Comey Tuesday asking for the investigation.

“Serious questions have been raised about overt and covert actions by Trump campaign officials on behalf of Russian interests,” they wrote. “It is critical for the American public to know whether those actions may have directly caused or indirectly motivated attacks against Democratic institutions and our fundamental election process.”

Trump didn’t help matters when he seemed to invite the Russians to hack into Clinton’s emails, or release those emails that were missing.

You would think someone who was already under a microscope because of ties to Russia and admiration of Putin would try to keep his head down in those situations, but then, that wouldn’t be Trump. It would actually be the wise thing to do.

The letter asks the “that the FBI assess whether connections between Trump campaign officials and Russian interests may have contributed to these attacks in order to interfere with the U.S. presidential election,” the ranking members said in a statement.

Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, helped run pro-Russian Ukrainian president Victor Yanukovych’s 2010 campaign, and was a key player in multi-million business propositions between Russian and Ukrainian oligarchs. Manafort resigned earlier this month.

Stay tuned. It’ll be interesting to see if the FBI is at least as vociferous in pursuing this situation as they were about going after Clinton’s misdeeds.

Which is, not much, at all.
