As Paul Manafort sits in jail, questions continue to swirl around his real estate empire — and potential links between Manafort, agents of foreign governments, and the Trump administration.
On Friday, Bloomberg reported that prosecutors have started investigating a $1 million loan made to Manafort’s family.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecutors told a court they want to know more about the loan, which was issued in August 2017. The money came from a Nevada company called Woodlawn LLC.
The loan was guaranteed by Manafort.
It’s still not clear who funded the loan, which might explain why prosecutors are lobbying the court for access.
