As international authorities continue to arrest high-ranking FIFA officials on bribery and corruption charges, FIFA president Sepp Blatter has been able to sidestep legal scrutiny for the most part. Until now.
The BBC reports the FBI is opening an investigation into Blatter's involvement in $100 million worth of bribes allegedly paid by sports marketing company ISL.
While Blatter has denied his involvement in the payments, a reporter for Panorama obtained a letter from the FBI saying Blatter had "full knowledge of all activities" and was always informed about them.
