In this July 17, 2016 file photo, then Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort talks to reporters on the floor of the Republican National Convention at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland as Rick Gates listens at back left.

FBI agents raided the Alexandria, Va., home of President Donald Trump's former campaign manager late last month, using a warrant to search for tax documents and foreign banking records, according to people familiar with the special counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

"Tax documents and foreign banking records" would be good to have in hand. Like a trail of bread crumbs leading the way home. I have to say that the boldness of this raid is stunning. Not during Watergate, nor Iran-Contra, nor Whitewater did anything remotely close to this type of action occur. Mueller must believe he's getting warmer to step up the pace like this, or he believes that he can't trust these players to follow his legal directives.

Something was up, otherwise they probably couldn't have gotten a search warrant.

The investigation moves to the point of raids. This is where it starts to get even more serious. Something must have provoked Mueller to move in this deliberate a fashion. I'm guessing we're going to see even more drastic action coming out of the special investigation.

"The use of a search warrant indicates that law enforcement officials have convinced a judge that there is probable cause to believe a crime may have been committed."

" Flynn's business partner, Bijan Kian, who served during the Trump presidential transition. Kian has not responded to multiple attempts to contact him over several months." On the lam?

"More so than anything else we've seen so far, it really does send a powerful law enforcement message when the search warrant is used. ..."

You morons still believe wishful thinking alone is enough to convict someone of a crime in America today - drip, drip, drip.
.
Meantime, Donald Trump is still President of the United States and Hillary Clinton isn't. And that's NOT just wishful thinking.
