Over the last 24 hours, new information has been released that adds yet another curve ball into the scandal linking Donald Trump and his team to Russia. As Congress currently investigates what impact Russia had on the 2016 presidential election, the FBI released their own bombshell. As first reported by CNN, U.S. officials have confirmed that the FBI is currently looking through newly obtained information that suggests Trump colluded with Russian officials in an attempt to damage Hillary Clinton during her campaign.

While the White House has yet to comment on the report, former CBS News host and legendary broadcaster Dan Rather gave his thoughts during a March 22 Facebook post.

"The plot thickens. The drum beats increase. The pressure mounts.

"I have seen a lot in my lifetime. But I have never seen anything like this," Rather said, while stating, "No one has." "The cauldron of chaos and confusion which engulfs President Trump in his early days in office is simply unprecedented," he continued.
