The FBI is investigating the role far-right news played in Donald Trump’s election victory.

Russian operatives appear to have saturated social media with links to pro-Trump stories during the election, two people familiar with the inquiry told the Chicago Tribune

Millions of posts on Facebook and Twitter linked to stories on conservative news sites such as Breitbart News , InfoWars, the Kremlin-backed RT News and Sputnik News. Some of the stories were fake, while others contained numerous falsehoods.

The investigation is part of the FBI’s probe into Russia’s alleged interference in the U.S. election.

Agents want to know whether the news sites took any actions to assist Russian operatives.
