Manafort Drops His Legal Team

Manafort Drops His Legal Team”

The committee asked for all records related to the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting when Trump Jr., the President's son-in-law Jared Kushner and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort met with Russian operatives after the younger Trump was informed the Russian government was trying to help his father's campaign.

US media reported on Wednesday that Manafort's house was searched in late July for tax documents and foreign banking records as part of the inquiry of US Special Counsel Robert Mueller into Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 US presidential election, which has been flatly denied by Moscow.

It was already known that Mr Manafort was under investigation for his business dealings with his son-in-law; his role in a meeting on June 9 a year ago between Trump campaign officials and Russians; and whether his work for the Ukrainian government violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

Manafort for some time has been the focus of Federal Bureau of Investigation and Senate investigators regarding the possible contacts between Russian Federation and Trump's team. That's what sources familiar with the matter told Bloomberg.

Taylor Swift Testifies In Groping Trial: 'It Was A Definite, Long Grab'
Call said he was "shocked" and "embarrassed" upon learning about the incident and anxious how it would reflect on the station. She says she and Mueller started out as co-workers at country station KYGO and became romantically involved in February 2013.

Mr. Trump said he had not spoken to Mr. Manafort "for a long time" but that he has "always found Paul Manafort to be a very decent man".

Trump, responding to news of the raid, said, "I was very, very surprised to see it...."

But the statements on Mueller stood in contrast to what Trump has privately told at least one person close to him in recent months.

"They may very well have been looking for something totally independent of Manafort's relationship to the president", Napolitano said. Given the scope, Mueller's team could find widespread criminality in Manafort's past, but to what end?

"I want them to get on with the task", Mr Trump said. I do not have anything else to say.

Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal called the raid a "highly significant step" and said it was "typical of the most serious criminal investigations dealing with uncooperative or untrusted potential targets".

The request for documents, which was described to CNN, was returned with thousands of pages relating to Flynn and his consulting firm.
