Feds move to seize Paul Manafort’s Trump Tower condo

The U.S. government is about to take a new piece of New York real estate – just a few floors below President Trump’s private home.

The Department of Justice moved to take formal possession of the 43rd-floor Trump Tower condo owned by Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager.

He pleaded guilty to tax fraud, conspiracy, money laundering and perjury as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

Manafort’s plea deal included the surrender of his 1,509-square-foot apartment at Trump’s iconic Fifth Avenue building – a flat with an estimated value of $2.5 million.

The forfeiture was described in a Friday court filing obtained by USA Today.
