FBI Raids Paul Manafort's Home in Russia Probe

FBI Raids Paul Manafort's Home in Russia Probe

News of the raid comes after special counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the investigation into Trump aides and campaigners' ties to Russian Federation during the 2016 election, impaneled a grand jury to assess whether there was the possibility of criminal conduct. Manafort, however, complied with law enforcement officers.

The pre-dawn raid on the Alexandria, Virginia residence took place on July 26, a day after Manafort voluntarily met with staff for the Senate Intelligence Committee, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday. After leaving the Trump campaign months before Trump was elected, he's been lurking largely in the background of a series of revelations about possible Trump campaign collusion with Russian Federation.

Jason Maloni, a spokesman for Manafort, confirmed that agents executed a warrant at one of Manafort's homes and that the political consultant had cooperated with the search.

The FBI was working at the behest of special counsel Robert Mueller, investigating Trump's campaign for possible collusion with Russian Federation, the Post reported.

The New York Times reported that Federal Bureau of Investigation agents seized "tax documents and foreign banking records" in their operation. He has also co-operated with congressional committees investigating the election interference. Along with the raid on Manafort's home, Mueller is now using a federal grand jury in Washington to further the investigation.




The documents included materials Manafort had already provided to Congress, said people familiar with the search.

The president's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., sent the committee another 250 pages two days later, Mr. Hartmann told Bloomberg.

The content of the documents was not immediately clear. Manafort provided about 400 pages on August 2, including his foreign-advocacy filing, while Trump's son Donald Jr. provided about 250 pages on August 4, Hartmann said.

Some of Trump Jr's private meetings have also been a subject of the Russian meddling investigation.
