A look at the scope of the intelligence community's probes into Trump's ties to Russia

The US intelligence community has opened investigations into
several members of President Donald Trump's inner circle over the
past year, focusing on the advisers' potential ties
to Russian government officials throughout Trump's
presidential campaign and beyond.

The probes appear to have begun as early as last spring, when the
CIA established US counterintelligence task force to investigate possible Russian
funds flowing into Trump campaign coffers. The task force consisted of the FBI,
the Treasury and Justice Departments, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the
National Security Agency.

The BBC first reported on the existence of the investigation
earlier this month, which McClatchy also reported was still ongoing.
