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

Senior Democratic lawmakers called on Wednesday for further investigation into a revelation that in 2016 Donald Trump's then-presidential election campaign chairman gave polling data to a man US prosecutors have linked to Russian intelligence.

Kilimnik worked with Manafort's consulting firm when he was representing pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine.

When a reporter asked about Manafort, Trump replied: "No, I didn't know anything about it". Manafort's lawyers said any incorrect statements by him were unintentional.

Prosecutors alleged that Manafort lied about providing Kilimnik with the polling data.

Citing Manafort's electronic communications, the special counsel said he had remained in touch with Trump aides, including a May 26, 2018, text exchange that came months after his initial indictment authorizing a "person to speak with an administration official on Manafort's behalf". President Trump denies any campaign collusion with Russian Federation.

Mueller has been investigating Russia's meddling in that election, as well as possible coordination between the Kremlin and Trump campaign-related figures.

"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.

Jackie Speier, a Democratic member of the House Intelligence Committee, said the revelations raised new questions about possible "collusion" between Trump's election team and Russian Federation.

Mueller's team has also charged Kilimnik with conspiracy to obstruct justice and obstruction of justice.

U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered Mueller to respond by January 14 with "factual and evidentiary basis" for why it is accusing Manafort of lying during his cooperation.
