A few thoughts on the search of Paul Manafort's home

Some people in DC have expressed outrage that Robert Mueller's investigators executed a search warrant at the home of Paul Manafort, Donald Trump's former campaign manager.

Really? Is the theory that in a criminal investigation we are supposed to just ask for documents or other evidence, and trust that the target of the investigation will fork them over? Maybe we should do that in drug cases, too-- we could just ask politely for the narcotics and any records relating to them, and assume that they have been produced.



Comments:
I was not shocked or surprised by this early morning search. What surprised me more was that this happened several weeks ago and it took so long to make the news.
