Skip to comments.Sources: FBI Investigation Continues...'Odd' Computer Link Between Russian Bank/Trump Organziation
Posted on 03/09/2017 6:35:35 PM PST by drewh
Federal investigators and computer scientists continue to examine whether there was a computer server connection between the Trump Organization and a Russian bank, sources close to the investigation tell CNN.
Questions about the possible connection were widely dismissed four months ago. But the FBI's investigation remains open, the sources said, and is in the hands of the FBI's counterintelligence team -- the same one looking into Russia's suspected interference in the 2016 election.
One U.S. official said investigators find the server relationship "odd" and are not ignoring it. But the official said there is still more work for the FBI to do. Investigators have not yet determined whether a connection would be significant.
The server issue surfaced again this weekend, mentioned in a Breitbart article that, according to a White House official, sparked President Trump's series of tweets accusing investigators of tapping his phone. CNN is told there was no Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant on the server.
The FBI declined to comment. The White House did not respond to a request for comment.
In addition, companies involved have provided CNN with new explanations that at times conflict with each other and still don't fully explain what happened. The story -- of a possible connection between computer servers -- is a strange tale because there are no specific allegations of wrongdoing and only vague technical evidence.
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.

More “serious but unverified” fake news.
AT&T has routers communicating with Russian routers!
Proof be damned. It’s the seriousness of the accusation that counts.
trying to do damage control after the horse has left the barn doors... you cant put that toothpaste back in the tube!
Wouldn’t it be hilarious if there really was a Guy named “Sources”?
We’re posting fake news from the fake news network - misdirection. propaganda. pablum. Jorno- diarrhea
Wow! #CNN-FakeNews is almost three days behind on this story.
Sources?? The DNC.
CNN must mean the Russian bank and the Clinton side
CNN really has zero. And I mean ZERO credibility anymore.
A DOZEN INSTANCES OF OBAMA SPYING
1.)The US National Security Agency bugged a private climate change strategy meeting; between UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin;
2.) Obama bugged Chief of Staff of UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for long term interception targetting his Swiss phone;
3.) Obama singled out the Director of the Rules Division of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Johann Human, and targetted his Swiss phone for long term interception;
4.) Obama stole sensitive Italian diplomatic cables detailing how Israels Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu implored Italys Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to help patch up his relationship with US President Barack Obama, who was refusing to talk to Netanyahu;
5.) Obama intercepted top EU and Japanese trade ministers discussing their secret strategy and red lines to stop the US extort[ing] them at the WTO Doha arounds (the talks subsequently collapsed);
6.) Obama explicitly targeted five other top EU economic officials for long term interception, including their French, Austrian and Belgium phone numbers;
7.) Obama explicitly targetted the phones of Italys ambassador to NATO and other top Italian officials for long term interception; and
8.) Obama intercepted details of a critical private meeting between then French president Nicolas Sarkozy, Merkel and Berluscon, where the latter was told the Italian banking system was ready to pop like a cork.
9.) In addition to the above list we also know now that Obama wire tapped various individuals in the US media that were reporting information not flattering to the Obama Administration. It is widely known that Obamas Justice Department targeted journalists with wiretaps in 2013:
10.) In 2013 the liberal Washington Post expressed outrage after the revelation that the Justice Department had investigated the newsgathering activities of a Fox News reporter as a potential crime in a probe of classified leaks. The reporter, Fox News James Rosen and his family, were part of an investigation into government officials anonymously leaking information to journalists. Rosen was not charged but his movements and actions were tracked.
11.) Also in 2013, members of the Associated Press were also a target of the surveillance. The ultra liberal New Yorker even noted that In moderate and liberal circles, at least, the phone-records scandal, partly because it involves the dear old A.P. and partly because it raises anew the specter of Big Brother, may well present the most serious threat to Obamas reputation.
12.) Reporter Sharyl Attkisson said in 2014 that her personal computer and CBS laptop were hacked after she began filing stories about Benghazi that were unflattering to the Obama administration. A source who checked her laptop said the hacker used spyware proprietary to a government agency, according to an article in the New York Post.
CNN should spend their worthless time covering the Obama/Jarrett command bunker to see what sedition they’re planning with Soros.

The Deep Swamp is all about protecting itself.
