Manafort, however, complied with law enforcement officers. The Post report said the raid came before dawn and without warning, and was conducted to seize documents and other materials.
Meanwhile, the Judiciary Committee said Wednesday it has also received about 250 pages of documents from Trump Jr. and about 20,000 pages from the Trump campaign.
Manafort managed Trump's campaign until he was forced to resign in August amid reports that he was under investigation over millions of dollars he was allegedly paid by the pro-Russia former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych.
Manafort led the Trump campaign for several months.
The company the committee thinks was behind a mostly unverified dossier on Trump - Fusion GPS and CEO Glenn Simpson - has not turned over any documents yet.
Manafort's spokesman, Jason Maloni, confirmed to US media that federal agents had "executed a search warrant at one of Mr. Manafort's residences".
Unnamed sources told the Post that FBI agents seized some documents that Manafort had already given to Congress in its own separate investigation.
Manafort's close associates fear that Mueller is working to build another case against him, unrelated to the presidential campaign that would then be used to force him to reveal information about Trump, in return for a softer sentence.
This is a breaking news and developing story. Trump Jr published emails about the meeting that suggested he was expecting to receive information to use against Hillary Clinton's campaign.
Despite the departure of Comey, who believes that he was sacked because of the FBI investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation, the bureau is continuing its process.
Manafort had voluntarily spoke with the Senate members and produced documents to the congressional committees prior to the explosive raid.
It remains unclear what, if any, evidence the Federal Bureau of Investigation will find that ties Manafort to a wider effort by Russians to influence the 2016 election, but it signals the agency's willingness to leave no stone unturned.
