Fox News: Manafort Charged with Conspiracy Against the U.S., Money Laundering, and Failing to Register as a Foreign Agent
SMITH: “There are new court documents that show the FBI interviewed President Trump’s former campaign manager chairman -- or I should say chairman Paul Manafort not once but twice before he joined the 2016 campaign. Those court filings came out late yesterday in a sort of document dump. The new information raises questions about the Trump campaign’s vetting of lots of staff members. And whether Paul Manafort, specifically, ever told anybody about talking with the FBI. The documents also show that prosecutors for the special counsel Robert Mueller are defending the FBI raids on Manafort's condo and a storage locker. Manafort’s team argues that the searches were illegal. Paul Manafort faces charges, including conspiracy against the United States, money laundering and failing to register as an agent of a foreign country."
