Special Counsel Mueller is Interviewing Russian Oligarchs, According to Reports

Calling the move an "unusual step", CNN in an exclusive report notes one Russian oligarch had his electronic devices searched "when his private jet landed at a NY area airport, according to multiple sources familiar with the inquiry".

CNN notes the new development "reveals that Mueller's team has intensified its focus into the potential flow of money from Russian Federation into the USA election as part of its wide-ranging investigation into whether the Trump team colluded with Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election".

Special counsel Robert Mueller told President Trump's attorneys last month that the president remains under investigation but is not now a criminal target, multiple sources familiar with the discussion confirmed to ABC News. It was unclear if he had his devices scanned. The unusual moves suggest a ramped-up effort to find out if Russian money was illegally funneled to the Trump campaign. The team has also reportedly sent an interview request to at least one other Russian oligarch.

White House counsel Ty Cobb, who's coordinating the administration's response to the Mueller probe, said the development was news to him. But Mueller's office has not previously revealed an interest in speaking with Russian oligarchs directly.

The Trump administration used CAATSA last month to slap sanctions against two-dozen Russian individuals and entities for their involvement in a two-year campaign of cyberattacks against the U.S.

Wealthy business leaders in Russian Federation often operate at the Kremlin's behest or, at the very least, with its blessing. His inauguration committee raised a record-breaking $106.8 million, and some government watchdog groups have questioned where that money came from as they say all funds have not been accounted for.
