The FBI Searched Trumps Campaign Manager
The FBI Searched Trumps Campaign Manager. The FBI visited the house last month by Paul Manafort, former campaign manager of President Donald Trump. Different documents were seized.
The agents appeared on July 26 in the early morning unannounced at Manafort’s home. The invasion would have been linked to the investigation by special prosecutor Robert Mueller, who looks at the alleged Russian interference in the US presidential election and possible collusion between Moscow and the Trump camp.
Manafort has already voluntarily released documents to parliamentary committees investigating the Russia connection.
According to the US newspaper The Washington Post, the invasion may indicate that the researchers suspect that he has kept documents.
The lobbyist and political consultant worked as a campaign manager for about five months. He had to clear the field last year after commotion had arisen over previous work for the party of pro-Russian Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.
Manafort also held a controversial meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower in New York, as a campaign manager for Trump. The Trump team then thought that the lawyer would make information available about Hillary Clinton, Trump’s opponent.
In the Trump update last week, Mouthaan explains why that meeting in the Trump Tower is so important.
