BREAKING: Manafort Raid Was Looking For Documents On Trump Tower Meeting

You know, the one with the Russians?
BREAKING: Manafort Raid Was Looking For Documents On Trump Tower Meeting

Some breaking news this morning from Newsweek:

A new court filing by Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel confirms that Paul Manafort was raided by the FBI to look for documents relating to the Trump Tower meeting in June 2016 with Russian lobbyists, which was brokered by Donald Trump Jr.

[...] According to the latest court filing by the Mueller inquiry, which is defending a warrant attached to a raid on Manafort’s home in July 2017, part of what the FBI were hunting for were “communications, records, documents, and other files involving any of the attendees of the June 9, 2016 meeting at Trump Tower, as well as Aras and [Emin] Agalarov.”

As you'll recall, Donald Trump Jr. thought he was being offered dirt on Hillary Clinton, but has since claimed the only thing they discussed at the meeting was adoption.

Sounds like Mueller doesn't believe him --or Paul Manafort.
