Reuters has reported that a federal judge has declined a request by President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort to suppress evidence seized by investigators. The evidence was seized by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office from a storage unit. Manafort, who's currently jailed in Virginia, argued the evidence was seized improperly after an FBI agent got one of his employees to open the storage unit. Manafort was never asked for permission and investigators never sought a warrant. Manafort's argument was rejected by District Court for the District of Columbia, saying “law enforcement agents do not need a warrant to enter a location if they have voluntary consent.”
