According to McClatchy, the FBI is investigating the internet sites, Breitbart and InfoWars in the context of its investigations into whether there was a Russian intervention in the presidential electoral campaign.

Breitbart is a news website. Steve Bannon (see photo), who is currently the President Trump’s strategic adviser, used to be the editor-in-chief. It has been largely subsidized by Robert Mercer (who also supports Cambridge Analytica, the Cato Institute and the Media Research Center).

InfoWars is the internet site of Alex Jones’s radio show.

The Democratic Party is accusing both sites of sabotaging Hillary Clinton’s campaign and ensuring the election of Donald Trump.
