The details are still being closely held by the FBI and the Mueller investigation team, but the Washington Post reports that there is reason to believe that solid evidence of Trump campaign officials conspiring with Russians to interfere with the 2016 U.S. presidential election has been given to Mueller's team.
The story centers on Marcy Wheeler, an independent journalist who writes "a well-regarded national security blog." Ms. Wheeler is known for having "frequently criticized American intelligence agencies and their penchant for surveilling U.S. citizens."
Authorities on U.S. journalism are astonished that Ms. Wheeler has made it known that she has revealed one of her sources and what she learned from him to the FBI. "But her dealings with him brought her around to believing something she initially questioned: that Russian interference in the 2016 election was a very real thing, and that Trump associates played a part."
Comments made by Ms. Wheeler to the Washington Post indicate that she may have gone public with her cooperation with the FBI because she now fears for her life. "If something happens to me -- if someone releases stolen information about me or knocks me off tomorrow -- everyone will now know why and who likely did it."
