FBI Wiretapped Russian Gambling Ring Headquartered at Trump Tower

The FBI monitored Russian activity at Trump Tower between 2011 and 2013. The Feds were granted a court-sanctioned warrant to monitor a Russian crime organization working out of a unit just three floors below President Trump’s penthouse, according to ABC News.

More than 30 people were indicted in April 2013, with federal agents raiding the Trump Tower apartment. The mastermind behind the activity, Alimzhan Tokhtakhunov, got away and fled the US justice system.

These latest developments became public as President Trump claims his own residence at Trump Tower was bugged at the direction of President Obama, but the intelligence community says there’s no evidence to back that up.

Tokhtakhunov is accused of having run a major gambling ring — headquartered out of unit 63A of Trump Tower — that saw $50 million of illegal money come into the U.S., according to ABC News.
