UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — FBI agents have raided the home of U.S. President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman.
On Aug. 9, The Washington Post reported authorities served a so-called “no-knock” warrant on one of Paul Manafort’s homes early on July 26.
The search was performed as part of special investigator Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
According to the Post, the warrant indicates investigators may have convinced a federal judge that Manafort might not comply with a grand jury subpoena asking for certain documents.
The pre-dawn raid came one day after the former chairman met with Senate intelligence committee investigators.
Manafort’s spokesperson confirmed the raid, saying Manafort cooperated with the search.
Some of the documents FBI agents working with Mueller seized had reportedly already been given to Senate investigators.
Manafort has already produced around 400 pages to the Senate Judiciary Committee in relation to the investigation.
