Congress resumes investigation of Trump's ties with Russia
The US Congress decided to resume the investigation of Donald Trump's ties with Russia, in particular regarding the Kremlin’s interference in the 2016 presidential election in the United States.
The special intelligence committee of the House of Representatives will deal with them.
Also, besides Donald Trump’s ties with the Russians, intelligence will examine his contacts with the Saudi authorities and check the administration of the US president about corruption.
What is known about Trump's connections with Russia?
At least 17 officials who took part in Trump’s election campaign, and a dozen more people close to Trump, knew about the ties with Russia, but didn’t make contact. While it is known that the list includes ex-assistant Trump, political consultant Paul Manafort, ex-lawyer for Trump Michael Cohen, Donald Trump Jr., ex-advisers for Trump George Papadopoulos and Michael Flynn.
Trump's team spoke with the Russians in personal meetings, by phone, via text messages and emails, in instant messengers.
Note that in March 2018, the committee closed a similar investigation, because it did not find evidence of Trump’s conspiracy with the Russian authorities. Since the new year, the Democratic Party has received a majority in the lower house of Congress - the House of Representatives and decided to once again study the Russian contacts of the Republican Trump.
Special Prosecutor Robert Muller is also investigating Moscow’s possible interference in the American elections. In the Kremlin, the charges are rejected.
How did the "Russian investigation" begin?
The basis for it was a cyber attack on the National Committee of the US Democratic Party, which resulted in open access to thousands of letters from staff members of Hillary Clinton. US intelligence found out that two groups of Russian hackers, Cozy Bear and Fancy Bear, hacked.
The reason for the expansion of the "Russian investigation" was a dossier on the current president of America, collected by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steel during 2015-2016, and the exposure of Donald Trump's numerous campaign staff members to Russian officials.
The investigation is being conducted by the US Department of Justice and Special Public Prosecutor Robert Muller in order to find out if Russia contributed to Trump’s election to the US presidency.
