FBI And CIA Met With Trump's Sons Day Before Comey Firing
At DailyWire by Hank Berrien
According to ABC News, the day before president Trump fired fomer FBI Director James Comey, the FBI’s bureau’s cybersecurity agents and representatives of the CIA met with Trump’s two sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, to investigate whether there had been an attempted overseas cyberattack against the Trump Organization.
Eric Trump, an executive vice president of the family company, would not confirm or deny whether he and Donald Jr. had met with the FBI, only telling ABC News, “We absolutely weren’t hacked. That’s crazy. We weren’t hacked, I can tell you that.”
Richard Frankel, a retired senior official with the FBI's New York office, told ABC News, "If there was a hack or an attempted hack of ... the company that was owned by the president, that would be at the top of the list of investigations. If the FBI saw that kind of hack, they'd have to track that. There's no telling what a hacker could get that's connected to the president, corporate records, financial records, even things that were going on during the transition.”
Frankel pointed out that an investigation into President Trump’s company could permit them access to the Trump Organization’s computer network, gaining them data connected to other investigations.
