Skip to comments.Manafort charges grew out of records seized in 'no-knock' raid

The FBIs predawn search of Paul Manaforts northern Virginia home in July yielded important new evidence crucial to the indictment of Donald Trumps campaign chairman and one of his close associates, according to the indictments unsealed yesterday by special counsel Robert Mueller.

He should have had Hillary wipe things down.
The FBI raid stuff is just more over the top stuff coming from thr Trump Haters-Russia Haters in Washington.
Its dangerous stuff fueling emotions that could lead to war.
He was working for the Podesta group.
All roads lead back to Hillary on this. MSM is spinning it, but it exonerates Trump of Russian ‘collusion’ and has it heading back for Podesta and Hillary next step.
I’d bet this Politico claim of finding records at Manafort’s home is complete disinformation. Perhaps a cover for info obtained in a completely illegal way.
Despite occasionally admitting the truth, Politico is above all another Leftist propaganda site.
I’d like to know the basis of the warrant. Why did a judge sign the no-knock warrant?
I smell poisoned fruit.
I’m afraid they found stuff in Manafort’s home that’s exculpatory for Trump, and incriminating for Hillary, so they could destroy it.
You know, of course, that had this been a Democrat that the campaign never would have been mentioned, or at the very least it'd be 'disgraced and fired' before mentioning the position.
Had a ride today with someone crowing about it, I asked if there was a hot tub time machine involved or something... Wha? Well, you know, for incidents that happened in 2012 or before while working for Podesta...
Without researching it, no-knock warrants can be issued under limited conditions. These are trumped up charges for what is essentially tax evasion. I doubt no-knock for tax evasion would stand judicial review.
Sessions is so playing 4D chess with controlling Weasel Mueller to take down the ‘rats....
You might be on to something, but it may not be so nefarious at all.
When I first heard about the raid on Manafort's home, I speculated that the Mueller team had obtained a whole pile of evidence through the CIA/NSA surveillance that was orchestrated under the FISA warrant last year, but couldnt use any of that evidence in a criminal prosecution because it would likely be thrown out of court. The raid on Manaforts home may have been conducted to get evidence through "legitimate" means that they already had from the prior surveillance.
If Manafort had specifics of $75 million money laundering at his home, he deserves jail for stupidity.
It sure does look like you are right. If everything starts from the dossier, and everyone knew it was fake, the fruit is poison.
Sessions is so playing 4D chess with controlling Weasel Mueller to take down the rats....
I wish I could believe that but the truth is more likely Sessions is playing 2D chess and the DNC has him in check already. Perhaps Sessions would be better at checkers or tic-tac-toe.
One of the theories I’ve seen is that he had every reason to believe it was all being done legitimately, so he didn’t take any measures to conceal the records.
If true, and it probably is not, but why would he leave incriminating stuff laying around.
“Ukrainian political party closely aligned with Vladimir Putins Russian government, according to the court papers”
typical fake stream media lie. the “court papers” didn’t use the word “russia” once nor did it use the word “trump” once either.
Why would someone as intelligent as Manafort keep incriminating evidence in his house? When Mobsters know better.
People think the 4th amendment protects people against unreasonable searches, but if you put the text under a microscope you can read in really fine print “This does not apply to persons associated with Donald Trump.”
So why didn’t they do that with Hillary’s server ... don’t tell me there aren’t two sets of laws, one set for us, the other for the Clintons.
