Just one day after voluntarily meeting with the Senate former campaign manager for at the time candidate Trump received a visit.
In the early morning of July 26th federal agents with a search warrant went to Manafort’s home in Alexandria, Fox News Reports:
FBI agents raided the Virginia home of Paul Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman in late July, taking documents and other materials related to the investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election, Fox News has confirmed.
FBI agents executed a search warrant at one of Mr. Manafort’s residences,” Manafort’s spokesperson Jason Maloni, confirmed to Fox News. “Mr. Manafort has consistently cooperated with law enforcement and other serious inquiries and did so on this occasion as well.”
The search warrant seems to indicate that investigators may have had reason to believe Manafort could not be trusted to turn over all of the records requested in response to a grand jury subpoena, the Post reported, citing people familiar with the special counsel investigation.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has cranked up the intensity and legal pressure on Manafort on a series of unrelated investigations into various aspects of his personal and professional life, the Post reported.
The special counsel has taken over a criminal investigation into Manafort’s financial dealings, which began even before the 2016 election.
With this information coming out and the news of Mueller convening a grand jury you gotta wonder at the very least Mr. Manafort may be in some hot water.
Do you think Mueller is in hot water?
