Prosecutors working for Robert Mueller’s special counsel reportedly told Paul Manafort, one of Trump’s former campaign managers, that they planned to indict him when they raided his home in July.
The warning came as federal agents sifted through Manafort’s computer files, documents, and other potential pieces of evidence that could help them in their federal investigation.
Manafort, the former campaign manager for Donald Trump, was fired last summer and has also emerged as a key figure in Mueller’s investigation.
Prosecutors will continue to scrutinize possible ties to Russia, his lobbying work overseas, and other previous business transactions.
Both Mueller’s spokesperson and Manafort’s lawyers declined further interviews and questions. whether Trump campaign associates worked with the Kremlin in order to fix the outcome so that Donald Trump would ultimately win the election.
Only time will tell the outcome, although the probe has recently picked up some steam as they search for potential White House leads.
The New York Times also reported that the government wiretapped Manafort’s phone during and after the 2016 presidential election.
As of now, Manafort has not been charged with any crime.
What are your thoughts? Do you think Manafort has anything to do with potential Russian interference in the 2016 election?
