Six federal law enforcement agencies are conducting an investigation into whether Donald Trump and his campaign illegally accepted money from the Russian government. Trump's campaign is being investigated for taking money that was supposed to be given to Russian-American pensioners and instead funneling it to hackers who released stolen information that was damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign. Update: FBI Director James Comey publicly confirmed that there is an ongoing investigation into Trump's campaign and even Trump himself concerning their interactions with the Russian government during the Presidential campaign. Update 2: Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel for the Russia investigation. Rosenstein stated he "determined that it is in the public interest for me to exercise my authority and appoint a special counsel to assume responsibility for this matter."
