MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Federal investigators filed the request with Citizens Financial Group, a Rohode Island-based bank, last April, people familiar with the matter told the Wall Street Journal.
The Trump camp came under fire in the United States on suspicion of colluding with Russia during the 2016 election campaign. Last week, the Senate Intelligence Committee asked Manafort and other advisors to President Trump to turn over their communications with Russian officials and businesspeople.
Russia has denied US claims it meddled in the election process, calling them absurd. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said earlier Moscow did not have official contacts with Trump's team during the presidential campaign.
