Timeline: Corruption to Collusion
Below is a timeline of known incidents before and after the election demonstrating the many intersections between Trump, his campaign, Russian officials, and entities owned by elite Russians, many of whom closely align with the Kremlin. These connections show the many ways in which the Trump campaign may have colluded with Russia to ensure Donald Trump’s election. Much of what we know about the case for collusion with the Russian government has only emerged after the fact, meaning there are likely gaps that will soon be filled as the American people learn more about how Russia interfered in the 2016 election—and how the Trump campaign may have helped. We will continue to update this timeline as new facts come to light.
Donald Trump and his lawyers have repeatedly denied that there was any collusion or any other involvement with Russia.
