When news broke Thursday that the FBI had just raided a Republican consulting firm in Annapolis, Maryland, people across Twitter immediately leapt to one conclusion — the Russia investigation.
But according to Strategic Campaign Group’s president, Kelley Rogers, the FBI’s warrant had nothing to do with the ongoing investigation into the Trump administration’s ties to Russia. Instead, Rogers told the local Capital Gazette, the raid concerned work the company did on a failed 2013 campaign for Virginia governor, which the candidate, Republican former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, had once sued the company over.

The firm is touted for pioneering the use of technology in political campaigns, and it represents GOP candidates nationwide. The firm's website said one of its principles was formerly associated with a firm operated by Paul Manafort, who is the former Trump campaign manager whose business dealings with Russia are under intense scrutiny.
The only media reporting on it are left / Democratic sources.
Stone and Manafort, two of President Donald Trump’s former senior advisors who are now being investigated by the FBI for possible collusions with Russia during the 2016 presidential election campaign, are the co-founders of Black, Manafort, Stone and Kelly, the political consulting firm where Whitfield served as a the director in the later part of his career

Senate Judiciary Chair Hints That Comey Revealed Trump Not Under Investigation
Trump is not the subject of the investigation. The Trump-Russia "claim" by Democrats deals with collusion between the trump campaign and russia in order to win the election for Trump.
You're kinda taking the no Russia connection thing a bit to broadly.
