Paul Manafort and His Developing Problem in Virginia

A condo at 601 N Fairfax Street in Alexandria, Virginia,  similar to the one owned by Paul Monfort and his wife.
At the start of this month, I reported exclusively:
As has been reported, Mueller will attempt to get New York state charges brought against Paul Manafort in an attempt to squeeze Manafort. President Trump has no authority to grant pardons in state cases.

But here is the thing that has not been reported yet.
Mueller is working with at least one other state beyond New York.
It should be noted that Politico now reports:
 The Realtor, who helped Manafort buy the Alexandria apartment recently raided by the FBI, was called last week by prosecutors working under special counsel Robert Mueller.

The Realtor who helped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort buy the Virginia condo that was recently raided by the FBI testified last week before the federal grand jury hearing testimony in Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, POLITICO has learned.

The real estate agent, Wayne Holland of Alexandria, Virginia-based McEnearney Associates, appeared before the Washington-based grand jury after a federal judge rejected the firm’s lawyer’s bid to quash subpoenas for testimony and records about various real estate transactions.

The broker’s appearance before the grand jury is one of few concrete indications of the leads Mueller’s prosecutors are pursuing as they investigate Russian meddling in last year’s presidential election...

While property records show Holland represented Manafort in his 2015 condo purchase, the broker declined to say anything about Manafort or about what questions were asked by prosecutors during the testimony last week.

“I cannot talk about what happened in front of the grand jury,” Holland said.

Manafort bought the 2,779 square foot Alexandria condo with Potomac River views in 2015 for $2.7 million, according to property records.
The Alexandria condo may play a very important role in putting the squeeze on Manafort.

The condo itself is part of the Oronoco luxury condo development comprising 60 units located near the banks of the Potomac River at 601 N Fairfax Street.

  1. I'm confused. It is clear now that the Trump Russian collusion thing was completely made up. What's more, Mueller knows it. So why is this nonsense still going on? Why isn't Mueller the one being investigated?
