Feds approached Paul Manafort’s son-in-law to get ‘into’ former Trump campaign chairman’s head: report
Federal investigators approached the former Trump chairman’s son-in-law to get “into [Paul] Manafort’s head,” Politico reports.
According to three sources familiar with special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, investigators spoke with Jeffrey Yohai—who is married to Jessica Manafort and has partnered with his father-in-law Paul Manafort in business dealings—earlier this summer. Manafort is reportedly under investigation for business transactions, some of which involve Yohai.
Neither Yohai or Manafort have been accused of a crime. But Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling and possible collusion with the Trump campaign has intensified in recent weeks, with the special counsel reportedly impaneling a grand jury, and the FBI conducting an early-morning raid of Manafort’s home.
