It appears someone tried to hack the Trump Organization from all the way across the world.

Anonymous law enforcement officials told ABC News the FBI is investigating an attempted hack into President Donald Trump's company. The suspected hack happened in early May and came from somewhere overseas.

But Eric Trump, an executive vice president of the organization, told ABC the company was not infiltrated.

Trump Organization computers are likely high on the FBI's radar since the company is owned by the current commander-in-chief. 

News of the suspected hack comes as multiple Trump aides and family members are under federal investigation for potential collusion with Russia. 

Former Trump aides Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort are under FBI scrutiny for their connections to Russia.

And Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner also recently became a person of interest.
