FBI special counsel Robert Mueller, assigned to oversee the federal probe into potential collusion between members of Donald Trump's campaign team and Russian officials during the 2016 presidential campaign, has teamed up with New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman on the investigation into Paul Manafort and his financial transactions, Politico reported Wednesday.

Manafort was Trump's campaign chairman and is under investigation for possible violations relating to his consultant work for Ukraine's former ruling party. The focus on Manafort has intensified as of late. FBI investigators raided his home in Virginia on July 26, seizing documents and other materials, and Mueller on Tuesday issued subpoenas to Manafort's former lawyer and his current spokesman.

A person who spoke with Politico said Mueller and Schneiderman's teams have reportedly collected evidence on potential money laundering against Manafort, among other possible financial crimes. Filing charges against Manafort, though, have not been discussed.

Schneiderman and Mueller have reportedly been in contact in recent weeks, and Schneiderman has also been conducting his own state-wide investigation of Manafort's real estate dealings.
