FBI raiding DC home of Manafort associate and Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska: reports
World Economic Forum - Michael Wuertenberg

FBI agents are currently raiding the Washington, D.C. home of Russian oligarch and billionaire Oleg Deripaska, who is an associate of convicted felon Paul Manafort, Donald Trump's former campaign chairman. Deripaska has ties to Russian president Vladimir Putin.

In 2019 Politico reported that "Two former top staffers to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have lobbied Congress and the Treasury Department on the development of a new Kentucky aluminum mill backed by the Russian aluminum giant Rusal, according to a new lobbying disclosure." Deripaska is the founder of Rusal.
