According to The New York Times, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) took a wide investigation, looking for financial connections between Russian government and Trump and his operatives in connection with hacking of other party computers and found nothing.
FBI even said that, contrary to claims by Democrats, the hacking may have been aimed at disrupting the presidential elections but it was not intended to ensure the elections of Donald Trump.
In an article posted to the liberal slate.com website shows that, Trump’s computer ties to the Russian bank, and latest FBI began investigating a possible connection between Trump and Alfa Bank, the largest private commercial bank in Russia.
The links were at first thought “questionable,” but after its long investigation the FBI determined, “there could be an innocuous explanation, like a marketing email or spam, for the computer contacts,” the New York Times reported.
Alfa Bank also released a statement denying any ties with Donald Trump.
“Neither Alfa Bank nor its principals, including Mikhail Fridman and Petr Aven, have or have had any contact with Mr. Trump or his organizations,” the statement read. “Fridman and Aven have never met Mr. Trump nor have they or Alfa Bank had any business dealings with him. Neither Alfa nor its officers have sent Mr. Trump or his organizations any emails, information or money. Alfa Bank does not have and has never had any special or exclusive internet connection with Mr. Trump or his entities.”
On October 7, the Department of Homeland Security and The Office of the Director of National Intelligence said in a statement that:
“The U.S. intelligence community is confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of emails from U.S. persons and institutions, including from U.S. political organizations… These thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the U.S. election process.”
WikiLeaks posted in July hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee. Presidential candidate from the Democratic Party Hillary Clinton accused Russian hackers. US Director of National Intelligence James Clapper also suggested Russia was behind the hacks. Kremlin has repeatedly denied the accusations.
