The pre-dawn FBI raid on the home of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort got physical, sources now report.
Agents ran their hands over the body of Kathleen Manafort before allowing her to get out of bed, on the insane premise that 64-year-old attorney and mother of two sleeps with loaded guns hidden on her body.
“‘Agents felt up Mrs. Manafort lying in bed to see if she had guns,’ the source said of the intimidation,” The Washington Times reports.
Those familiar with Manafort prosecutor Andrew Weissman aren’t surprised. Weissman is known for physically targeting the innocent family members of suspects.
“‘Weissmann will want to maximize the trauma to his family,” said Sidney Powell, a Dallas appeals attorney critical of his tactics,” the Times reports.
The creepy “feel-up” has been used against conservatives before. In 2015 FBI agents raided the Virginia home of a former Ron Paul campaign official to execute an arrest warrant.
During the predawn raid, his underage daughters were forced to stand outside in the cold, in their underwear, just off the street and in full view of people on their way to work.
Agents did not find the Ron Paul campaign official at his Virginia home. He was in Iowa, at the courthouse waiting for them, as they had instructed him to do days before. He had even coordinated his travel with the FBI and had called ahead hours earlier to confirm he was there and waiting.
