Donald Trump demanded to find out whether the special services interfered in his election campaign.
US Department of Justice will check if the political motivation was the FBI investigation of the Russian intervention in the presidential election in 2016, reported in the department.
The representative of the Ministry of Justice Sarah Isgur said that the department asked the inspector general to determine whether there were any violations in how the FBI conducted its investigation against those suspected of having contacts with “Russian agents.”
The Ministry of Justice issued this statement after the demands of US President Donald Trump to find out whether the FBI interfered in his election campaign
I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes – and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!
