The FBI raided Paul Manafort’s home in late July

August 9, 2017

  As everyone is aware of by now we learned earlier today that at the end of July the FBI raided Paul Manafort’s home and seized documents. Here is more:

FBI agents raided the residence of former Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort last month, and he also has turned over hundreds of pages of documents to congressional investigators, as probes ramp up into the president’s campaign and Russia’s role in the 2016 election.

The pre-dawn raid on July 26 at the Alexandria, Virginia, home roused Manafort, who was in town to appear before Congress, according to a person familiar with the situation. Agents took reams of material from his home.

“FBI agents executed a search warrant at one of Mr. Manafort’s residences. Mr. Manafort has consistently cooperated with law enforcement and other serious inquiries and did so on this occasion as well,” said Jason Maloni, a spokesman for the former Trump campaign chairman.

  It should be remembered that Paul Manafort’s tenure as Donald Trump’s campaign manager was short-lived and once the news broke of his connections to former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and his Party of Regions Donald Trump accepted his resignation. 

  I believe Paul Manafort is in some real trouble here and I have to believe if Donald Trump knew about this connection he never would have hired him in the first place but still the question is out there.

  Is there a smoking gun here? We do not know at this point but it seems like this is Paul Manafort’s problem, however if there is anything there it will be very problematic for the President:

A Washington-based defense lawyer with a client caught in the Russia probe said Mueller may also want to turn Manafort into a cooperative witness, something the former campaign manager’s representatives had previously said wasn’t happening.

“Manafort is on many levels a key subject of the investigation and someone who might be leveraged to share information about others,” the white-collar attorney said.

    So we move to the old soviet style of justice. Why not take him downstairs and break his knuckles? It would probably work a lot faster. I guess there are just a couple of us that find this sickening. If not for thee than me,,,,, and you and I will be next.

      It is getting ugly, they are going to leave no rock unturned as they try to find anything they can use to bring down the President. It is very troubling.

    This is the same FBI that let pant suit lady off the hook. But that’s understandable since not unlike the criminally insane serial killer, whatever her unlawful and treasonous activities endangering the nation’s security, she didn’t mean it. Meanwhile it seems that same agency will aid and abet the taking down of an innocent man. Trump will pay for running an open and honest winning campaign. What’s missing from the FBI building are the Kremlin spires.

    Saw this: Lou Dobbs and Greg Jarrett discuss the disgusting double standard going on with the Paul Manafort raid.
    Why is Paul Manafort’s house raided while Hillary, Loretta Lynch and James Comey get a “free pass?”
