FBI Raided Donald Trump's Former Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort's Home: Report

Prominent conservative radio host Ben Ferguson on Wednesday said he was "exiled" from Donald Trump's campaign after he expressed concern over the on-boarding of former campaign manager Paul Manafort.

The search warrant was wide-ranging and FBI agents working with Special Counsel Robert Mueller departed the home with various records.

FBI used a search warrant to seize documents and other materials, appearing at Manafort's home without advance warning in the predawn hours of July 26, WaPo reported, citing people familiar with the Rob Mueller-led special counsel probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Mueller III, the special counsel overseeing the Russia probe, has ordered a series of unrelated investigations into Manafort's professional and personal life.

The use of a search warrant indicates that law enforcement officials have convinced a judge that there is probable cause to believe a crime may have been committed. He was also a key figure in the meeting with a Russian lawyer in 2016 that claimed to have damaging information about opponent Hillary Clinton. Committee spokesman George Hartmann said Tuesday that it received the Manafort and Trump campaign documents on Aug. 2 and the records from Trump Jr. on Friday. Manafort is the former chair for US president Trump's campaign.

Mueller's team of investigators has sent subpoenas in recent weeks from a Washington grand jury to global banks for account information and records of transactions involving Manafort and some of his companies, as well as those of a long-time business partner, Rick Gates, according to people familiar with the matter.

Manafort worked for years as a political consultant advising the pro-Russian Party of Regions and its leader, former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. "I was surprised to see it".

It was the latest of several attacks targeting security forces guarding France over the past year. The committee initially called for them to testify publicly, but lawmakers have since said they were negotiating the terms of their appearances.

At least a few schools have showed support for such students by offering practical help with housing, jobs or meals, including Adelphi University in New York, Lawrence University in Wisconsin, and Ohio University. That work sought the extradition of an exiled Turkish cleric living in the U.S. Through his attorney, Flynn has declined to comment on the investigation.
