Russia investigation special counsel Robert Mueller is looking back more than a decade in his team's probe of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, CNN reported.

The FBI's warrant for a July search of Manafort's Alexandria, Virginia, home said the probe centered on possible crimes committed as far back as January 2006, an unnamed source told the outlet.

The period covers much of the decade Manafort worked as a consultant for Ukraine's former ruling party, CNN noted.

In addition, Mueller's team has warned Manafort they are working to charge him with possible tax and financial crimes, CNN reported.

A spokesman for Manafort declined to comment.

Manafort has previously denied financial wrongdoing regarding his Ukraine-related payments, his bank accounts in offshore tax shelters, and various real estate transactions over the years, CNN reported.

Investigators also have obtained Manafort's notes from the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer who promised to provide negative information on Hillary Clinton, CNN reported.

Manafort, who attended with Donald Trump Jr. and President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, wrote notes on his phone during the meeting.

According to CNN, the notes portray a meeting mostly focused on a Russian lawyer's complaints about investment fund manager William Browder and his role in pushing sanctions legislation against Russia.

Manafort's lawyers also turned over a one-page document containing the notes to Congress, which is investigating as well, CNN reported.
