US intelligence officials are investigating potential ties between an adviser of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and senior Russian officials, local media reported on Friday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The authorities are probing reports that Trump’s foreign policy adviser Carter Page is engaged in private talks with Russian officials, particularly on possible lifting of sanctions against Moscow, Yahoo News reported citing sources familiar with the issue.

The sanctions, imposed by Washington over Russia’s alleged involvement in the conflict in Ukraine, could be lifted, if Trump wins the race for the White House, according to the report.
