Paul Manafort didn’t slip away as quietly as he thought he did after his name was mentioned in the Russian collusion scandal, and he pulled his best disappearing act. Now, reports indicate that Manafort’s home as the subject of a pre-dawn strike by the FBI, targeting files and information Manafort may be hiding.
WaPo reports that, “federal agents appeared at Paul Manafort’s home without advance warning in the predawn hours of July 26, the day after he met voluntarily with the staff for the Senate Intelligence Committee.
The search warrant was wide-ranging and FBI agents working with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III departed the home with various records.”
According to the The Washington Post:
“The search warrant was wide-ranging and FBI agents working with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III departed the home with various records. The raid came as Manafort has been voluntarily producing documents to congressional committees investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. The search warrant indicates investigators may have argued to a federal judge they had reason to believe Manafort could not be trusted to turn over all records in response to a grand jury subpoena.”
