A former FBI agent key to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election is one of several forensic accountants working on the Manhattan district attorney's investigation into the Trump Organization, people familiar with the matter say.

(CNN)A former FBI agent key to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election is one of several forensic accountants working on the Manhattan district attorney's investigation into the Trump Organization, people familiar with the matter say.

Morgan Magionos, who was a lynchpin to the prosecution of former President Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, is a member of the team of outside experts from FTI Consulting aiding New York prosecutors.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance brought on FTI Consulting last year as part of his office's wide-ranging investigation into possible insurance fraud, fraud involving lenders, and tax fraud.

Trump has called the district attorney's investigation a "witch hunt. " The Trump Organization this week beefed up its legal team by bringing on criminal-defense attorney Ronald Fischetti, who decades earlier was a law partner with Pomerantz.

Fischetti joins the Trump team where he will work closely with Alan Futerfas, who has represented the Trump Organization since the special counsel investigation.
