Federal Bureau of Investigation agents recently raided the residence of Paul Manafort, and he has turned over hundreds of pages of documents to congressional investigators as probes ramp up into President Donald Trump's campaign and Russia's role in the 2016 election. Manafort, however, complied with law enforcement officers. According to the Post, documents seized during the raid were the same that Manafort had already turned over to Congress. Manafort, after all, is someone who was ostensibly cooperating with investigators and turning over documents, including testifying behind closed doors to the Senate Judiciary Committee the day before the Federal Bureau of Investigation showed up at his door in the predawn hours.

On Aug. 9, sources familiar with special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian Federation disclosed that FBI agents working with the investigation had already raided and collected evidence from Manafort's residence. Officials in the House, Senate and Department of Justice are now investigating the extent of Moscow's involvement in addition to any possible collusion on the Trump campaign's part.

The company the committee thinks was behind a mostly unverified dossier on Trump - Fusion GPS and CEO Glenn Simpson - has not turned over any documents yet.

The emails that Donald Trump Jr released detailing his meeting with a Russian lawyer was the latest twist that the investigating committees are keen to delve into.

A spokesperson for Manafort said, "FBI agents executed a search warrant at one of Mr. Manafort's residences". According to the Post, "documents and other materials" were seized.

Investigators were looking for tax documents and foreign banking records, the New York Times reported. The Trump campaign sent over more than 20,000 pages of documents to the committee last week on August 2, the deadline to submit documents to the committee.

Some of Trump Jr's private meetings have also been a subject of the Russian meddling investigation.
