Federal Prosecutors Issue Subpoenas in Manafort Laundering Probe

The investigation by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY is being done in collaboration with special counsel Robert Mueller's own probe into possible laundering by Manafort, according to the Journal.

James Margolin, a spokesman for Acting U.S. Attorney Joon H. Kim, declined to comment.

The U.S. attorney's office for the Southern District of NY is working in conjunction with Mueller's team to determine whether Manafort was involved in a money-laundering scheme, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.

The chief of the office's public-corruption unit, Andrew Goldstein, was hired over the summer by Mr. Mueller to join his wide-ranging investigation of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election, including possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives.

The list of probes into Manafort's affairs continues to grow, as prosecutors who specialize in money-laundering cases have recently been recruited to Mueller's team, and investigators continue to ramp up their investigation into Russia's involvement in last year's election.

These overlapping probes represent only one facet of the investigations into Manafort's political work and financial transactions.

Trump has interviewed and is poised to nominate candidates to lead the prosecutorial offices in both Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Last week, CNN reported that Trump personally interviewed a leading candidate for the USA attorney post in Manhattan, Geoffrey Berman - an unusual move by a president especially with that office probing a former aide.

New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, whose office has been running its own investigation into Manafort's New York real estate holdings, has been in communication with Mueller's team.

While the White House denied that such interviews were unusual, once confirmed, both US attorneys will have jurisdiction over cases involving Trump associates. And the attorney appointed to lead the Southern District of NY would have jurisdiction over the Manafort money-laundering probe.
