SourceThe Daily Mail said:Scotland Yard detectives are closing in on a 'Gang of Four' suspects including Tony Blair at the heart of the cash-for-honours affair, sources have revealed.
The Prime Minister, his chief of staff Jonathan Powell, Labours chief fundraiser Lord Levy and Downing Streets director of government relations Ruth Turner are now the main focus of the police probe.
Mr Blair and his key officials were all closely involved in the nomination of wealthy businessmen to the House of Lords, said the senior source.
One said: "This quartet are inextricably linked by the nominations process for the House of Lords. There are increasing suspicions that each knew exactly what was going on."
Detectives have narrowed their investigation on to a suspected cover-up following the alleged disappearance of crucial emails and documents.
A prosecution source added: "The activities of a Gang of Four at Downing Street are at the heart of the inquiry."
Detectives are understood to have uncovered fresh evidence after hacking into Downing Street computer systems following a tip-off from a No 10 mole.
The mole is reported to have revealed that crucial e-mails between wealthy businessmen and officials were buried on Downing Street computer systems.
The information, which could help lead to the discovery of smoking gun e-mails and documents, was a key factor in the decision to arrest Miss Turner at 6.30am on Friday on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.
Scotland Yard became suspicious that potentially vital information was being withheld after twice asking for all e-mails, letters and other material related to the award of peerages to be handed over.
Picture No 10 being raided, sealed off, occupants led away for questioning (Bliar included) in a police van, computers and equipment being removed by forensics........ Oh how the mighty will fall!The mole is reported to have revealed that crucial e-mails between wealthy businessmen and officials were buried on Downing Street computer systems.
