Ronan Farrow, the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, claimed on ABC's 'This Week' round table on Sunday morning that not only Russia is trying to interfere with the United State's politics and elections - but Israelis are as well. Farrow was commenting on the New York Times story from over the weekend that the FBI traveled to Tel Aviv as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into U.S. President Donald Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia.

Farrow connected the story to Trump canceling the Iran nuclear deal. “For instance, you know, we had the reporting in the last weeks with me and also several other reporters that there were efforts to scupper the Iran deal, to sabotage the reputations of people behind it,” said Farrow referencing allegations Israeli spy firm Black Cube was hired to dig up dirt on Obama officials.

“Look at the New York Times revelation in the last two days about Israeli social media manipulation. Similarly, we see, you know, an Israeli private investigations firm going after the personal reputations of people behind the Iran deal. There are a new array of actors here that the American public didn’t know about, and this is all going to figure into this next election,” Farrow concluded.
