F.B.I. Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia

FBI alarmed by Trump behavior after firing of Comey In the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by  the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had  been working on behalf of Russia against American interests, according  to former law enforcement officials and others familiar with the  investigation.


The inquiry carried explosive  implications. Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether  the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national  security. Agents also sought to determine whether Mr. Trump was  knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s  influence.


The investigation the F.B.I. opened into Mr. Trump also had a criminal aspect, which has long been publicly known: whether his firing of Mr. Comey constituted obstruction of justice.
