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.

In a statement to ABC News, a spokesperson for Manafort confirmed the raid had taken place and said Manafort has been cooperating.

Federal agents arrived at Manafort’s home without warning and departed with records, according to the Post.

The raid happened the day after Manafort had a meeting with staff for the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is also investigating Russia.

An adviser close to the White House told the Post if the FBI wanted the documents, they “could just ask [Manafort] and he would have turned them over.”
