The FBI reportedly applied for a warrant to monitor Donald Trump’s presidential election campaign over links to Russian officials.
The request by US investigators, to track four members of his team, was allegedly rejected but then eventually granted in October last year.
The claims come amid potentially highly embarrassingly and damaging allegations that Russian intelligence has compromising material, some of a graphic sexual nature, on the President-elect just nine days before his inauguration.
The Guardian reports that the FBI applied for the warrant from the foreign intelligence surveillance (Fisa) court over the summer to keep an eye on Mr Trump team members suspected of irregular contacts with Russian officials.
