The FBI has investigated possible ties between Russia and Donald Trump for months, but the agency says so far there is no conclusive link between Trump and the Russian government.
Even the hack of the Democratic National Committee's emails was seen as more of a general disruption and less of a pro-Trump tactic, The New York Times reports.
Hillary Clinton's campaign has argued the FBI should discuss these investigations openly after it publicly revealed a new batch of emails possibly tied to her private server.
The new joke in town is that Russia leaked the disastrous DNC e-mails, which should never have been written (stupid), because Putin likes me— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 25, 2016
Trump, despite repeated denials, has shown an affinity for Russian president Vladimir Putin.
It has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump... and the Russian government.
Trump has also praised Putin's leadership publicly. This, combined with the hacks on the DNC and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta's email, have led Democrats to argue Trump must have ties to Russia.
But what about this Russian bank?
Meanwhile, Slate reported experts had found communications between the Trump Organization and the Russia-based Alfa Bank, including some on a server registered to the organization.
The Clinton campaign said it might be the "most direct link yet between Donald Trump and Moscow." But the FBI said the messages between Alfa Bank and the Trump server might just be marketing or spam-based.
Here's the Clinton campaign's full statement.
But what about Manafort?
The one known tie to Russia is Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort. He was an advisor to former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych and has been linked to pro-Russian government groups in Russia and the Ukraine.
The FBI is investigating Manafort, but it is focusing on his ties to the Ukrainian government and not Russian influence, the Times reports.
Manafort denied reports of the investigations to NBC News, calling the allegations "political propaganda."
Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland decried what he saw as a "double standard" in the investigations.
And Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook implored FBI director James Comey to reveal more of its findings.
