Politico: Feds Might Have Used Informant Inside Manafort's Firm

The federal government might have had a confidential informant working in Paul Manafort's consulting firm who passed on inside details about the former Trump campaign chairman's business.

Politico cited a court document filed by Manafort's lawyers that appears to outline how a confidential source — likely referred to as "CS-1" in the document — allowed a reporter to view files on a copy of a hard drive belonging to Manafort's company, Davis Manafort Partners International.

"Government obtained warrant for the hard drive," the memo reads.

Below that are notes that say the reporter wrote a story in April 2017 that contained details about how Manafort was paid for some of his political consulting work.

Manafort was indicted in late October as part of the ongoing Russia investigation on several charges, including money laundering and failing to register as a foreign agent.
