Call it the Motion of the Unknown Donor. A Southern California man who loaned $1 million to Paul Manafort in 2017 has asked the court to keep his name from being revealed due to fears he will lose business and friendships.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller III’s prosecutors are asking a Nevada company, Woodlawn LLC, to identify the ultimate source of $1 million that it loaned to the family of President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, Bloomberg reports. In response, the company’s lawyers filed a motion to keep the lender’s name anonymous.
