FIFA President Sepp Blatter is being investigated by the FBI as part of the corruption scandal, sources have told ABC News.

ABC News Senior Investigative Reporter Josh Margolin reports that Blatter is being investigated by the FBI and U.S. prosecutors.

He added that the FBI declined to comment because Blatter has not been publicly identified as a target of the investigation. The sources said the feds are conducting the FIFA probe the same way they would handle an old-school New York-style racketeering case.

“Now that people are going to want to save themselves, there’s probably a race to see who will flip on [Blatter] first,” one source said, explaining how the feds typically try to get people to inform on their superiors.

“We may not be able to collapse the whole organization but maybe you don’t need to,” one of the sources said.
