One of the key figures at the center of the Trump-Russia inquiry, President Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, may have to bid his Bridgehampton home goodbye if he’s convicted by the feds. Manafort, who was indicted Monday on 12 counts of money laundering and conspiracy against the U.S., may have to forfeit his 10-bedroom home at 174 Jobs Lane, according to Newsday. Manafort pleaded not guilty to charges that he used overseas shell companies to launder millions of dollars — funds which he used to buy homes and cars, among other luxuries. These expenses allegedly include $5.4 million to a Hamptons home improvement company and more than $820,000 to Hamptons landscapers, according to the report. Still, Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman told Newsday, it is “not unheard of” to spend millions on home improvement and landscaping in the Hamptons. [Newsday]
