The reason that the United States is presently so politically divided is that the power elite/ruling class are very divided, and the different factions of the power elite are trying to rally constituencies for themselves. Unfortunately, quite a few people seem stupid enough to fall for that shit.
The FBI raided the home of Paul Manafort, who had served as one of President Trump’s campaign chairs during the 2016 presidential race, late last month.
“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,” said Manafort spokesman Jason Maloni.
Federal agents came to his home in Alexandria, Virginia last month in the predawn hours of July 26, The Washington Post reported Wednesday. This would have been a day after he met privately with the Senate Intelligence Committee. According to the Post’s report, the search warrant was wide-ranging and FBI agents left his home with various records.
The Senate Judiciary Committee had also subpoenaed Manafort to appear at a public hearing last month, but his attorney said that Manafort would be willing to provide a “single transcribed interview to Congress.”
