(Worthy News) - The FBI and Department of Justice partnered on a secret program aimed at flipping Russian oligarchs with potentially damaging information about the Trump campaign's alleged involvement with the Kremlin, according to a New York Times report Saturday.

Justice Department official Bruce Ohr worked with the FBI to attempt to turn one of those oligarchs, Oleg V. Deripaska, who is close to the Russian government.

At one point, FBI agents made a surprise, "uninvited" visit at Deripaska's home in New York and questioned him on whether Paul Manafort, then-chairman of Trump’s campaign, "had served as a link between the campaign and the Kremlin," the Times reports.

The effort appears to have been unsuccessful, and according to DOJ documents obtained by the New York Times, Deripaska refuted investigator's theories about collusion between the Kremlin and Trump campaign and organized crime in Russia. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]

  1. The FBI has been compromised for decades and we're finding out about it almost when it was too late. Hillary's Hit Squad is composed of rogue elements in the FBI. Levoy Finicum was murdered by the FBI. The Orlando massacre was an FBI intervention ...... but nobody got killed until the FBI showed up at 5 am. Ah, but that's probably a coincidence.
