Too bad, they didn't investigate Hillary Clinton with the same vigor, though!

They did.  It is just that the outcome was not to your liking.

Where are you getting that?  In the final weeks of the campaign, they went through Hillary's top aide's house (Huma).  When they scanned her computers and those of her husband, they THOUGHT they found the missing Hillary emails.  (They then went on to publish that, sending Hillary's numbers down at a critical point in the campaign, and probably throwing the election to Trump, but that's another thread.)

The difference was that Hillary and Huma cooperated with the investigation, while Manafort apparently gave them reason to conduct a raid.

Well, Federal agents appeared at Paul Manafort’s home without advance warning in the predawn hours and seize documents and other materials.  Raid's like that is usually not granted by a judge unless the request is pretty convincing.


That doesn't prove any evidence (if it actually exists) was destroyed.

Well they did leave with documents and other materials.  I am betting that they do have something.

They might have "something".
But we don't know if what they have is indeed incriminating.
Just because someone see's fit to raid his house, doesn't mean they are going to find something incriminating.
Plus them simply getting documents doesn't prove Manafort destroyed anything incriminating.

That is an obvious statement which stands for everyone.  Including Hillary Clinton.  But as I said, a judge does not just willy-nilly hand out raid warrants unless they are seriously convinced by the investigators.

And as I said, just because someone see's fit to raid his house, doesn't mean they are going to find something incriminating. They obviously left with his records, but that doesn't necessarily mean they will find something incriminating in them. Nor does it mean incriminating evidence was destroyed.

OK, but remember, A raid means probable cause
