Transcript for FBI investigates reported connections between Trump campaign and Russia
from the Russians. For more we go to Pierre Thomas who is in Washington. Pierre, you have been talking to your sources all night and what are you learning? Reporter: Good morning, robin. The FBI is in the middle of a broad investigation looking into potential ties between trump associates and suspected Russian intelligence officials. Authorities are investigating travel and phone calls involving trump associates in the year leading up to election and they have developed a list of spies who pose as academic leaders sometimes and trying to figure out if the trump associates knew who they were dealing with or were being duped into giving information. So far they have not uncovered hard evidence there was any intentional cooperation between the trump associates and Russian intelligence, robin. Pierre, as far as Michael Flynn is concerned, we know that the FBI has interviewed him trying to get to the bottom of his relationship with the Russian ambassador. Reporter: Sometime in the week after the inauguration, the FBI interviewed Flynn about his conversation with the Russian ambassador. The FBI won't comment but they're still assessing all the answers he gave and the justice department will have to make a final determination as to whether he told the complete truth. That's important because lying to the FBI, robin, is a felony. Yes, we do know that. Many are wondering what about Jeff sessions, the new attorney general? Where does he fall on all this. Reporter: Democrats on the hill are saying he needs to recuse himself because Flynn and sessions were on the campaign trail for trump but so far sessions has not commented and we have no idea what he's going to do. All right, Pierre, thank you.
