Mueller Met With Trump's Campaign Pollster, a Former Manafort Associate

H1 trump border address

President Trump said Thursday that he knew nothing about his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, allegedly sharing 2016 presidential campaign polling data with Konstantin Kilimnik, an associate the Federal Bureau of Investigation has said has ties to Russian intelligence.

They also defended their client's recollections of his meetings with Kilimnik, a Russian-Ukrainian citizen who served as his key representative on the ground in Ukraine during a series of political campaigns in which Manafort served as a highly paid consultant.

On Tuesday, Manafort's legal team accidentally revealed in a court filing in a case involving the special counsel's office that the former Trump adviser sent Trump campaign polling data to Konstantin Kilimnik, a longtime associate of Manafort's who allegedly has ties to Russian intelligence. President Trump denies any campaign collusion with Russian Federation.

The information was shared around the time that Trump secured the GOP nomination, and most of the data was already public, The Times reported. Since Robert Mueller made this a sticking point in seeking to overturn Manafort's plea deal, the answer thus far seems to be no.

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.

But US prosecutors have since accused Manafort of lying to investigators, complicating his efforts to get a reduced sentence in exchange for his cooperation. Manafort pleaded guilty in September to conspiracy charges related to that Ukraine work, and had agreed to cooperate truthfully with Mueller's team.

Rudy Giuliani, a lawyer for Trump who has repeatedly criticized the Mueller probe as a fruitless "witch hunt", dismissed the sharing of data with Kilimnik as inconsequential.
