The federal investigation into possible connections between President Donald Trump and the Russian government include bank records the Justice Department requested from Paul Manafort, the president's former campaign manager, The Hill reported Friday.
The Justice Department asked for Manafort's records from Citizens Financial Group Inc. in April, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday, quoting people familiar with the matter.
In addition, the Treasury Department in March obtained financial records for Manafort's overseas financial transactions in Cypress as part of a federal anti-corruption investigation into past work he conducted in eastern Europe, the article explained.
Manafort left Trump's campaign over questions about his finances and lobbying work for ousted Pro-Russia Ukrainain President Viktor Yanukovych and other Russian officials. Other financial dealings also came under review after he took out $13 million in loans from businesses connected to the president and formed a "shell" corporation on the same day he stepped down from the campaign.
