NPR's Mike Shuster reports from New York on the latest developments in the widening scandal over alleged Russian money-laundering in the United States.

However, investigators are also looking into the possibility that senior Russian government officials may also have been responsible for illegal transfers of huge sums abroad — including money lent to Russia by the International Monetary Fund.
