The plot thickens.

"Sources close to the widening probe of official corruption in Washington tell ABC News that investigators are studying travel records of expensive trips to Hawaii and Europe taken by top CIA official Dusty Foggo and San Diego defense contractor Brent Wilkes," ABC News reports Wednesday.

The Hawaiian vacation property was first reported by the San Diego Union Tribune. ABC News was the first to report that the property was part of the government's inquiry into an ever-widening Washington corruption scandal.

ABC has also acquired the real estate photos of the site. The seven bedroom Honolulu property can accomodate 12 guests, according to the real estate listing.

"Prosecutors want to know who paid for the lavish trips to European castles and top end Hawaiian resorts, including this $7,000 a night Honolulu beachfront mansion, owned at one time by hair stylist super-star Paul Mitchell," ABC reports.

"Wilkes, a close personal friend of Foggo is suspected of paying bribes to Congressman Duke Cunningham, who recently pled guilty in the corruption investigation."
