http://www.politico.com/story/2017/08/09/fbi-raid-paul-manafort-virginia-home-241441 FBI agents recently raided the residence of Paul Manafort as part of the ongoing probe into Russia's role in the 2016 election, a spokesman for the former Trump campaign chairman confirmed on Wednesday. "FBI agents executed a search warrant at one of Mr. Manafort's residences. Mr. Manafort has consistently cooperated with law enforcement and other serious inquiries and did so on this occasion as well," said Jason Maloni, a spokesman for the former Trump campaign chairman. The pre-dawn raid at the Virginia home, which was first reported by the Washington Post, roused Manafort, who was in town to appear before Congress, according to a person familiar with the situation. Agents took reams of material from the home.
