The Breakdown: What's going on with Paul Manafort

President Trump's claim of being wired tapped during the election -- is back in the headlines.

So are Hillary Clinton's talk of Russia swaying the results.

The American at the center of both conversations: Paul Manafort.

This summer, the FBI raided Manafort's home. The New York Times says federal agents were that worried Manafort would destroy evidence.

Paul Manafort was the President's campaign manager, but was fired before the race was won for his ties to pro-Russian lobbyists.

A year later, the FBI's investigation into Russia's election meddling centers on Manafort.

Prosecutors even warn him that an indictment's coming his way.

Remember President Trump saying that his team was wiredtapped?

Turns out the Manaford was wiretapped -- starting back in 2014.

He was being investigated for some shady business deals, but they found nothing.

Now we're hearing they had another tap prior to the election that was ongoing up until earlier this year.

Today, Manafort came out telling the feds to leak all the calls they tapped.

He says America will see there's nothing there.
