[:en]The agents seized materials in Manafort’s home as part of the ongoing Russia investigation led by Justice Department Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the source said.
“FBI agents executed a search warrant at one of Mr. Manafort’s residences. Mr. Manafort has consistently cooperated with law enforcement and other serious inquiries and did so on this occasion as well,” Jason Maloni, a spokesman for Manafort, told CNN. He declined to provide further details.
The so-called no-knock warrant, which was first reported by The Washington Post, was served at Manafort’s home in Washington’s northern Virginia suburbs on July 26, the day after Manafort met with Senate intelligence committee investigators.
The tactic appears unusual for a case that has been under investigation for months and for which Manafort has already turned over hundreds of pages of documents to Senate investigators. The source told CNN the documents seized included financial and tax records and at least some of the information had already been provided to Senate investigators.
Since his appointment in May, Mueller has quietly gathered a team of more than three dozen attorneys, investigators and other staff in a nondescript office in Washington. Officials familiar with the probe describe it as akin to a small US attorney’s office, with FBI agents and prosecutors assigned to separate groups looking into various aspects of the investigation.
These include groups of investigators and lawyers focused separately on Russian collusion and obstruction of justice, as well as the investigations focused on Manafort and former national security adviser Michael Flynn, a US official briefed on the investigation has told CNN.
So far, Trump’s campaign has turned over approximately 20,000 pages to the Senate judiciary committee, which is investigating Russia’s interference in the election, while Manafort turned over approximately 400 pages and Donald Trump Jr. turned over about 250 pages.
Fusion GPS, the firm that compiled a dossier at the center of the federal Russia probe, has not yet turned over any documents, according to the committee’s spokesperson, though a source told CNN the firm plans to provide the committee with “thousands” of pages of documents Wednesday.
The spokesperson declined to provide details about the specific contents of the documents.[:es] 

Agentes del FBI provistos de una orden judicial allanaron una casa de Paul Manafort, el ex jefe de campaña de Donald Trump, dijo un vocero de Manafort el miércoles.
Jason Maloni dijo que el FBI allanó una de las casas de Manafort, pero no dijo cuándo sucedió. El periódico The Washington Post, que tuvo la primicia de lo sucedido, dijo que el allanamiento tuvo lugar el 26 de julio en una casa de Manafort en Alexandria, Virginia y estuvo a cargo de agentes del fiscal independiente Robert Mueller.
“El señor Manafort ha cooperado de manera consecuente con las fuerzas de seguridad y otras investigaciones serias y lo hizo también en esta ocasión”, dijo Maloni.
Ex jefe de campaña de Trump, sospechoso por su trabajo en Ucrania
Manafort es objeto de una prolongada investigación del FBI por sus transacciones en Ucrania y su trabajo para el ex presidente Viktor Yanukovych. Esa pesquisa ha sido incorporada al proceso que dirige Mueller, quien también investiga a Manafort en el marco de su indagación en la injerencia rusa en las elecciones de 2016 y cualquier presunta colusión de allegados a Trump.
Manafort, quien fue jefe de campaña de Trump durante algunos meses, ha rechazado haber cometido delito.
La existencia de una orden de cateo indica que los agentes de la ley convencieron a un juez de que existe causa probable para creer que se ha cometido un delito.
Manafort ha cooperado con las comisiones legislativas que investigan la injerencia electoral y ha entregado documentos a las comisiones judicial y de inteligencia del Senado. El día antes del allanamiento fue interrogado a puertas cerradas por personal de la comisión de inteligencia del Senado.[:]
