Feds, bank battle over Manafort’s assets

The Justice Department and a Chicago bank are still fighting over former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s real estate and cash, more than a year after he pleaded guilty in the investigation headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Who wins the unfolding battle could have a significant impact for the ongoing political debate over the cost of Mueller’s probe and claims that it broke even financially.

In a court filing Tuesday, Justice Department attorneys and lawyers for The Federal Savings Bank said they’re at odds about how to proceed over the bank’s claim of ownership interests in three Manafort assets: his swanky Long Island estate valued at about $10 million, a Brooklyn, N.Y. brownstone worth about $4 million, and a $2.5 million bank account.
