Trump says he knew nothing about Manafort's dealings with Russian

H1 trump border address Manafort Lawyers Accidentally Reveal Trump’s Campaign Chair Shared Polling Data With Alleged Russian Intel Officer

Paul Manafort shared polling data on Donald Trump's 2016 campaign with a Ukrainian associate who has ties to Russian intelligence, and also met with the colleague in Madrid while working on the presidential campaign, according to a court filing from Manafort's lawyers published Tuesday.

"This shows that Bob Mueller can demonstrate to a court, without the testimony of Paul Manafort, that the campaign had a connection to Russian intelligence and the connection involved information going from the campaign to the Russians", Napolitano said.

Manafort's defense team was responding to Mueller's accusations that he lied to the special counsel's investigators about his contacts with Russians during the campaign after pleading guilty a year ago.

The office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller has charged Manafort and Kilimnik in its investigation of Russian interference in the election and whether Trump campaign members coordinated with Moscow officials.

Asked on Thursday about the allegation against Manafort - which was meant to be hidden from the public within a court filing from the former campaign chief's lawyers - Trump said he "didn't know anything about it".

Prosecutors alleged that Manafort lied about providing Kilimnik with the polling data. Instead, they said, they would be open to resolving the matter during pre-sentencing reports.

"Such a failure is unsurprising here, where these occurrences happened during a period when Mr. Manafort was managing a US presidential campaign and had countless meetings, email communications, and other interactions with many different individuals, and traveled frequently", the Manafort attorneys argued.

An "unnamed source familiar with the situation" told CNN Fabrizio wasn't aware of with whom Manafort or his deputy Rick Gates had shared polling data.

Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion with Russian Federation and criticized Mueller's ongoing probe as a "witch hunt".

"If this is collusion - though collusion isn't a crime - this would be collusion", Smith said. Manafort pleaded guilty in September to conspiracy charges related to that Ukraine work, and had agreed to cooperate truthfully with Mueller's team.
