While Trump is busy trying to distract America with the greatest diversion of all (the specter of nuclear war), the FBI is continuing to close in on his associates.
And if there’s anything Trump probably didn’t want to hear this morning as he touts his mighty nuke arsenal on Twitter, it’s this:
- FBI IS SAID TO HAVE SEARCHED PAUL MANAFORT’S HOME
That’s right folks, Mueller’s team conducted a surprise raid on Manafort late last month.
You remember Paul, right? He was the campaign chairman that “played a very limited role”:
Well as it turns out, Mueller wants to know more about that “role” and maybe a little bit about just how “limited” it was.
“FBI agents raided the Alexandria home of President Trump’s former campaign chairman late last month, using a search warrant to seize documents and other materials,” WaPo reports, citing people familiar with the special counsel investigation.
And this sounds like it was anything but friendly:
Federal agents appeared at Paul Manafort’s home without advance warning in the predawn hours of July 26, the day after he met voluntarily with the staff for the Senate Intelligence Committee.
The search warrant was wide-ranging and FBI agents working with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III departed the home with various records.
Between this and the grand jury, we have one question for Donald Trump and his surrogates: do you still think this is going to just “go away”?
