Manafort shared Trump polling information with Ukrainian affiliate throughout 2016 marketing campaign

Trump Tells ABC’s Jon Karl ‘I Didn’t know Anything About’ Manafort Collusion With Russia

President Trump on Thursday denied any knowledge that his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort shared polling data with a Russian who has ties to the Kremlin's intelligence community.

Mueller accused Manafort of lying to his prosecutors in late November and later said that the breaches came in five different areas, including his contacts with Kilimnik and the Trump administration.

CNN reported that Tony Fabrizio, a partner at Republican public opinion firm Fabrizio, Lee & Associates, was spotted leaving the special counsel's office on February 1 of 2018, and has since been confirmed to be meeting with investigators at that time.

He said that agreement would be a "conspiracy", whether or not the Trump campaign actually got anything of value from the Russians.

Clemson Rolls Tide To Win Natl Title
Clemson returns quarterback Trevor Lawrence, running back Travis Ettiene and receivesr Justyn Ross and Tee Higgins among others. How historic was the Crimson Tide's loss? Alabama will be back, but Clemson will nearly certainly be there waiting for them.

That's the question, of course - will Manafort testify that Trump did know about it?

The revelation Manafort, who is now being held in an Alexandria, Virginia, jail, shared the data emerged via a paperwork snafu in a Washington, D.C. court this week. Since Robert Mueller made this a sticking point in seeking to overturn Manafort's plea deal, the answer thus far seems to be no.

The interview had previously not been reported but has taken on new meaning after attorneys for Manafort, who was convicted in August 2018 on eight charges of tax and bank fraud, revealed that Mueller "is still interested in how Manafort shared polling data with his Russian intelligence-linked colleague". Manafort's lawyers said any incorrect statements by him were unintentional.

Mueller's team has also charged Kilimnik with conspiracy to obstruct justice and obstruction of justice. He entered a plea agreement with special counsel Robert Mueller on September 14, 2018, but prosecutors have since alleged that Manafort has violated the terms of the deal by lying about certain topics.
