President Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort has come under renewed scrutiny after federal law-enforcement officials reportedly identified $40 million in “suspicious transactions” to and from his companies, according to BuzzFeed News. The sum is more than double the amount cited in the charges when Manafort was indicted for money laundering last October. Between 2004 and 2014, eight different banks are said to have filed 23 “suspicious activity reports,” which detail claims that Manafort received huge sums from banks in tax havens such as Cyprus, Kyrgyzstan, and St. Vincent—and there are suspicious-activity reports dating all the way up to 2016. Manafort’s longtime business partner Rick Gates reportedly intends to testify against Manafort after reaching a plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller. Manafort pleaded not guilty to all charges in last October’s indictment.
