— Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are the latest politicians to declare they are on the FBI’s “no-Fly List,” according to two people familiar with the matter.
The Trump camp did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The Clinton camp did send a statement that said: “Secretary Clinton and Donald Trump are both on the NO-FLY LIST, and they are not being allowed to participate in the elections.
The FBI has been working diligently to investigate Russian interference in our elections and any potential coordination between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
Any suggestion that the United States is being surveilled by any foreign power is absolutely false.”
A statement from the Trump team said that the campaign had received “no confirmation of this.”
The FBI is currently looking into whether Russian intelligence operatives used a private email account to conduct covert communications with Trump officials and others during the 2016 presidential campaign.
The probe could lead to new charges against Trump.
The FBI was first asked to investigate the allegations on March 4, two days after Clinton lost to Trump.
The bureau had no specific evidence to support the charge and its director, James Comey, said at the time that there was no evidence to suggest Trump or his campaign had colluded with Russia.
In late April, Comey told Congress he had decided not to recommend criminal charges against Clinton, saying that there wasn’t enough evidence to pursue it.
Trump has maintained that he was not personally aware of Russian hacking and that he did not know about the existence of the Russian “no fly” list.
He has also denied any involvement in Russian election meddling.
