Manafort May Be Indicted

Sep 6, 2017

President Trump’s former campaign manager may be indicted for “money laundering or tax evasion.” Manafort’s legal troubles may stem from his “real estate dealing and foreign business activities.” The potential charges do not relate to the Russia collusion story. One of Manafort’s former aides said that Congressional committee investigating alleged Russian interference “appeared focused on finances and business relationships of the Trump family and top associates such as Paul Manafort and General Michael Flynn.” Special Counsel Mueller is using the federal grand jury to subpoena records related to Manafort’s business activities and to “compel witnesses to cooperate with the investigation.” In July, Manafort’s house in Virginia was raided and business records were seized.
