Until late 2016, Igor Diveykin served as Vladimir Putin's deputy chief for internal policy.
In that role, according to U.S. officials, Diveykin oversaw the collection of intelligence by Russian agencies related to America’s 2016 election. Diveykin, a former Russian security official, now serves as deputy head of the State Duma Apparatus, which is the lower house of the Russian legislature. In July 2016, Diveykin allegedly met with Donald Trump’s then-foreign policy adviser Carter Page in Moscow, according to U.S. officials. Page’s trip to Moscow was personally approved by Trump’s campaign manager at the time, Corey Lewandowski.
