WASHINGTON (Reuters) - FBI agents seized documents and other materials from the suburban Virginia home of Paul Manafort, U.S. President Donald Trump's former campaign manager, during a predawn raid as part of a special counsel's investigation into possible Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, The Washington Post reported on Wednesday.

The raid, authorized by a search warrant, was conducted without advance warning on July 26, a day after Manafort met with staff members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, the Post said, citing unidentified people familiar with the probe.
