FBI Investigates Possible Computer Server Connection Between Trump Organization, Russian Bank
By Steve Neavling
An FBI counterintelligence team is investigating a possible computer server connection between the Trump administration and a Russian bank.
The same team is investigating whether Russia interfered in the 2016 election.
One U.S. official told CNN the server relationship was “odd,” but it’s not yet clear whether it was significant.
Internet data shows that last summer, a computer server owned by Russia-based Alfa Bank repeatedly looked up the contact information for a computer server being used by the Trump Organization — far more than other companies did, representing 80% of all lookups to the Trump server.
It’s unclear if the Trump Organization server itself did anything in return. No one has produced evidence that the servers actually communicated.
