The FBI conducted a predawn raid on former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort’s Alexandria, Va., home two weeks ago, seizing tax and banking records that in some cases had been provided to a Senate committee.
The Washington Post reported that agents executed a “wide-ranging” search warrant in connection with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and took various records. A Manafort spokesman confirmed the July 26 search and said Manafort was cooperative.
“Manafort’s allies fear that Mueller hopes to build a case against Manafort unrelated to the 2016 campaign, in hopes that the former campaign operative would provide information against others in Trump’s inner circle in exchange for lessening his own legal exposure,” the Post reported.
But… Was Mueller raid on Manafort home an intimidation stunt?
