Don’t forget about the Russia probe: FBI Raids Home of Trump’s Former Campaign Chair Paul Manafort

The FBI carried out a pre-dawn raid last month of the home of Donald Trump’s former campaign chair, Paul Manafort, in the latest escalation of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election. The July 26 raid, which was confirmed Wednesday by a spokesperson for Manafort, saw agents seize tax documents and foreign bank records. The raid came one day after Manafort testified to Senate investigators about his meeting—along with Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr.—last summer with a Kremlin-linked lawyer promising damaging information on Hillary Clinton.
