On November 7, 2016, Louise Mensch broke the story that the FBI had been granted a FISA warrant in October to investigate US persons in relation to the Trump campaign’s collusion with Russia. The report indicated the FISA warrant was to investigate financial and banking offenses related to a Trump Tower server’s communication with two Russian banks, and that this was a revised request; an earlier FISA request in June had been denied.

Mensch published this scoop the day before the election, several months before major newspapers were able to confirm it. However, it was later confirmed in nearly all of its detail. Mensch continues to publish leaked intelligence reports of otherwise unreported details of the Trump–Russia investigation.
