The feds now own a condo in Trump Tower, thanks to Paul Manafort

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)The federal government now owns condo 43G in Trump Tower because of the Mueller investigation, a judge certified Thursday.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson's order was the final move seizing the apartment from former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his wife Kathleen after he admitted to illegal foreign lobbying and money laundering and was convicted by a jury of fraud and other financial crimes during the Mueller probe.

Snip:

Manafort bought the 1,500-square foot, 2-bed, 2.5-bath Fifth Avenue condo more than a decade ago for $3.675 million through a shell company that hid his riches from US authorities. He used it as a home base for years when he traveled to New York and when he led the Trump campaign. His residence there was even part of Manafort's pitch to Trump to hire him in 2016, according to The New York Times.

8. Whenever I think of how that pisses 45 off everytime he thinks of "conflicted" Mueller, I laugh.

The feds also have three other properties of Manafort's -- one in the Hamptons and two in a couple of boroughs.

10. Carefully sweep the condo for listening devices

I understand the landlord had a thing for eavesdropping on phone calls, at one time. A couple bugs keeping tabs on associates would seem in character
