Feds Move To Seize Manafort’s Trump Tower Condo

The Huffington Post reports:

The U.S. government has formally moved to seize control of the Trump Tower apartment of Paul Manafort, a convicted felon and former Trump campaign chairman, according to court filings on Friday obtained by HuffPost.

As part of a plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller, Manafort was forced to forfeit five of his New York properties to the government, including an apartment in Trump Tower, all totaling an estimated $22 million, The New York Times reported in September 2018.

Manafort’s 1,509 square foot condo at Trump’s iconic building on Fifth Avenue is estimated at $2.5 million. Occupancy rates at the president’s luxury property have plunged over the last several years, according to a Bloomberg report from earlier this month.
