Former Trump associate Paul Manafort was reportedly put under surveillance following a probe into his business dealings in 2014.
A bombshell report from CNN claims President Donald Trump's former campaign chair Paul Manafort was wiretapped by the U.S. government under a secret court order.
CNN says the tap was authorized sometime after the FBI started probing Manafort's consulting work for Ukraine in 2014. It lapsed last year, but the FBI renewed the warrant into at least early 2017.
The wiretap reportedly wasn't active when Manafort was actually Trump's campaign chair. It may have picked up information relevant to the ongoing probe into Russia's election interference, but CNN's sources caution nothing conclusive was acquired.
Trump previously claimed he was personally wiretapped during the campaign. There's still no evidence to support those claims. CNN notes it's not clear if the wiretap picked up conversations between Trump and Manafort.
