From 2014 to 2016, the FBI and the US Department of Justice tried to recruit Russian businessman Oleg Deripaska. This is reported in The New York Times referring to former and current Russian officials, as well as people from the entourage of a businessman.

According to their information, Deripaska was offered assistance in obtaining an American visa in exchange for information on Russian organized crime and possible assistance of  the Russian Federation in the Trump election campaign.

From the businessman, the FBI demanded to tell whether his former business partner, ex-head of Donald Trump's campaign headquarters, Paul Manafort, was the link between the electoral headquarters and the Kremlin.

According to media reports, the representative of the US Department of Justice Bruce Ohr and the compiler of the compromising dossier on US President Donald Trump, ex-employee of the British special service MI6 Christopher Steele, participated in the campaign.

In response, Deripaska did not admit anything and told the Kremlin about attempts to recruit him.
