The U.S. Attorneys for the Southern District of New York and Eastern District of New York are working in concert with the New York Attorney General and the Mueller probe in order to investigate the Trump administration according to the Wall Street Journal . In addition, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York (Manhattan) is investigating Paul Manafort for money laundering, something that had previously not been disclosed.

The Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office is pursuing an investigation into possible money laundering by Paul Manafort, said three people familiar with the matter, adding to the federal and state probes concerning the former Trump campaign chairman. The investigation by the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York is being conducted in collaboration with a probe by special counsel Robert Mueller into Mr. Manafort and possible money laundering, according to two of these people.

The Kushner family is also under investigation by the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York (Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island).

In the Eastern District of New York, based in Brooklyn, federal prosecutors are probing Kushner Cos., the New York property-development business owned by the family of Mr. Kushner, a White House senior adviser, regarding its use of an investment-for-immigration program, The Wall Street Journal has reported.

The Southern District of New York, the Eastern District of New York and the New York Attorney General's Office are investigating Trump in concert with special counsel Robert Mueller.

The special counsel’s operation also has communicated with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office about the state’s own money-laundering probe concerning Mr. Manafort.
