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.
Holland was originally called to testify on Oct. 13, but objected to the subpoenas on the grounds that Virginia and District of Columbia law makes real estate broker records confidential.
However, U.S. District Court Chief Judge Beryl Howell ruled that those confidentiality statutes don’t preclude federal prosecutors from using grand jury subpoenas to demand details of real estate deals.
“The respondents are wrong: the information the grand jury subpoenas seek is not privileged under state or federal law and the government need not make any special showing to obtain these records, nor would production be ‘unreasonable or oppressive,’” Howell wrote in an opinion unsealed Friday. “The language of the District and Columbia statutes...make clear that real estate brokerage records may be produce pursuant to a federal grand jury subpoena without the necessity of an additional court order.”

Because Trump & his heinous hooligans were committing conspiracy with Russian government agents to install Putin's puppet Trump in the White House.

You missed the accusations that the Russians used Pokemon Go to influence the elections?
Are you claiming that anything that was reported in that story is false?
Attorney for @PaulManafort tells me neither he nor his colleagues have received any word of their client being indicted.
