FBI agents raided Manafort’s home

FBI agents late last month conducted a raid at the home of Paul Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign manager.

The agents had a search warrant to seize materials from Manafort’s residence in Alexandria, Va., according to The Washington Post, citing people familiar with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

The raid took place early on July 26.

    How can they do that without any criminal charges being filed. Are they saying that they can just get a warrant and search anybody’s home? Try it on my home. You will meet deadly force.

      All they need is some judge that accepts whatever they provided as PROBABLY CAUSE that there might have been a crime to get a warrant to search for evidence of that crime.

      The problem arises when activist judges ignore the requirements and issue one to further their own agenda or law agents abuse their authority or even provide false evidence or testimony to get warrants issued on false pretext.

      Basically they are just “FISHING” for evidence hoping to find anything they can use to support their false claims of a RUSSIAN connection to Trump during the election. Now that irrefutable evidence has been leaked that proved a DNC insider was the source of the DNC leak not the “Russian hackers” they blamed and some in the media still blame.
