REPORT: Special Counsel Mueller Issues Subpoenas For Manafort’s Bank Records
Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team are not slowing down when it comes to the Russia investigation. It was reported on Thursday that Mueller and his team are issuing subpoenas for bank records from Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
According to Bloomberg, the investigation team sent out orders from a Washington grand jury to banks seeking banking information that involve Manafort.
But the subpoenas are also reportedly searching for information related to Manafort’s business dealings and his former business parter Rick Gates.
Mueller’s team has also contacted Manafort’s son-in-law and a Ukrainian oligarch as an attempt to pressure Manafort to cooperate with prosecutors.
Manafort’s home was raided last month by the FBI according to multiple reports. Manafort’s spokesperson also confirmed that the raiding did in fact occur.
“Mr. Manafort has consistently cooperated with law enforcement and other serious inquiries and did so on this occasion as well,” the spokesperson said in a statement Wednesday.
