US Special Counsel Mueller Probes Trump Finances

The Latest House intel panel to interview Kushner

A raid on the Virginia home of US President Donald Trump's 2016 election campaign manager showed the investigation of possible ties between the campaign and Russian Federation is growing. Jason Maloni, a spokesman for Paul Manafort, says Manafort has dropped law firm WilmerHale, which had been speaking to investigators on his behalf and now plans to hire Miller & Chevalier, which specializes in worldwide tax cases, to represent him in the special counsel's investigation.

Manafort will be represented by Miller & Chevalier's Kevin Downing, who is a "real rockstar global tax litigator", Maloni said.

Former FBI Director Robert Mueller is leading the Department of Justice's Russian Federation investigation, which involves Manafort, and it appears he may be focusing on Manafort's tax records and lobbying history.

Kevin Downing, a former Justice Department lawyer whose law firm biography notes that his "practice concentrates on criminal and civil tax matters but also includes money laundering, white collar matters and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)", will be leading the team representing Manafort, the source explained.

In fact, Manafort served as Trump's campaign manager for almost half a year during the critical period of the campaign when Trump wrapped up the nomination. Seemingly out of the blue, Trump starts attacking the Acting FBI director, along with his own attorney general Jeff Sessions.

'This is an event that never took place'.

While working for the Trump campaign last year, Manafort, a 68-year-old longtime political consultant who's faced scrutiny for his ties to oligarchs in Ukraine and Russian Federation, was reportedly also responding to a congressional request for information about Russian Federation. "In addition, given the obvious unlawful deficiencies, this extraordinary invasive tool was employed for it shock value to intimidate Mr Manafort", said Dowd. However, Russia has denied the allegations, while Trump has called the multiple investigations into his campaign a 'witch hunt'.

Trump claimed not to have spoken to Manafort "in a long time". "I did not want to make her relive this moment over and over again", Andrea Swift said.

Manafort has been a subject of a longstanding FBI investigation into his dealings in Ukraine and work for the country's former president, Viktor Yanukovych.

According to committee officials, the panel has now received roughly 20,000 pages from the Trump campaign responding to a detailed series of questions posed by the panel last month.
