 article about Manaforts home raided by FBI
Washington Post reports that on the night of July 26 FBI agents raided the home of Paul Manafort, the former campaign chairman of President Trump. During the raid the agents seized a number of documents related to the investigation of Russian meddling of the presidential election campaign.

According to the warrant, the documents the FBI agents were searching for were related mainly to tax and banking. Manafort has previously also voluntarily been providing documents related to potential Russia's election interference.

"Mr. Manafort has consistently cooperated with law enforcement and other serious inquiries and did so on this occasion as well." Manafort's spokesman, Jason Maloni.

It's been said that the raid could be a show of force to send a message to Manafort that no gentle treatment should be expected from special counsel Mueller's team.

Close adviser to the White House said that "If the FBI wanted the documents, they could just ask [Manafort] and he would have turned them over."

Manafort's spokesman, Jason Maloni, has confirmed the reports of the warrant execution.
