Manafort Judge Questions Claim of Improper Seizure of Records

Manafort Judge Questions Claim of Improper Seizure of RecordsA federal judge posed skeptical questions about Paul Manafort’s claim that an FBI agent improperly searched a storage locker that held extensive business records before the former Trump campaign chairman was charged in two indictments. Manafort claims that the records seized by the FBI should be suppressed because an agent was given access to the locker by a former employee of Manafort’s political consulting firm who still had a key. The agent surveyed the contents of the facility in Alexandria, Virginia, wrote a search warrant and got a judge’s signature before the FBI returned the next day to seize thousands of records relating to Manafort’s consulting firm.

Why Caterpillar can't keep up with a boom in demand

Why Caterpillar can't keep up with a boom in demandOrders for the mining machines and construction bulldozers made at this sprawling Caterpillar Inc. factory in central Illinois have jumped, in general, three-fold over the past year. Years of watching Caterpillar and other big manufacturers cut inventories, close plants and axe workers in the last downturn has embedded caution in Kirsh's ambition to expand after the surge in orders, reflecting a more fundamental shift in how many industrial businesses view expansions, according to interviews with Caterpillar executives, more than a half-dozen Caterpillar suppliers and U.S. economic data. "I just wasn't sure it was real," said Kirsh, speaking from a windowless office at the front of Kirsh Foundry Inc., in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, which makes metal parts for Caterpillar and other customers.
