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

Clearly, we’re in an election cycle. 

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.”
