A day before former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was indicted last year, special counsel Robert Mueller looked to seize accounts at three different banks, Politico reports.

The move was disclosed in a list of search and seizure warrants prosecutors submitted to a federal court on Thursday according to the website, which posted the document online.

The document was filed after Manafort's defense team said the government was withholding too much information about the warrants it obtained.

The document also showed moves to search "premises located in Alexandria, Virginia," a storage locker in Alexandria; a Manafort email account; a computer hard drive, and information relating to "five telephone numbers controlled by AT&T."

Prosecutors also said details about the searches were not released because it relates to the identity of informants or "to ongoing investigations that are not the subject of either of the current prosecutions involving Manafort."

Politico noted Manafort is facing two separate indictments. One centers on alleged money laundering and foreign lobbying. The other deals with alleged tax fraud, bank fraud and a failure to report overseas bank account.

Meanwhile, Mueller has questioned an associate of the Trump Organization, who had a role in overseas deals with President Donald Trump's New York based company in recent years.

The special counsel's investigators "showed up unannounced at the home of the business associate," McClatchy newspapers reported, citing personals familiar with the proceedings.

The person was not identified, but was said to be "a party to multiple transactions connected to Trump's effort to expand his brand abroad," according to McClatchy.
