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

BOMBSHELL: The FBI raided former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s home late last month as part of the Russia election interference probe, the Washington Post reports.

Washington Post:  “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, according to people familiar with the special counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.”

“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.”

Donald Trump publicly pressured the former FBI director on the same day as the FBI raid, tweeting: “Why didn’t A.G. Sessions replace Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, a Comey friend who was in charge of Clinton investigation but got….”

He also tweeted about the transgender ban in the wee hours after the FBI raid: “After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will no long allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming…..”

You will recall Trump fired James Comey after pressuring him over the Russia investigation. He fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she sounded the alarm about former national security adviser Mike Flynn becoming compromised by the Russians. He fired US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara, after he tried to contact him on multiple occasions.

It is becoming harder and harder for Donald Trump to say that what Paul Manafort did had nothing to do with him or his campaign. On the contrary. The FBI raid is a very significant development. It shows that the investigation is zeroing in on the highest levels of Donald Trump’s inner circle. His tweets will get more and more unhinged with each bombshell revelation.
