Robert Mueller met with Trump's pollster

Robert Mueller met with Trump's pollster

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.

According to CNN, Manafort told his accountant in a November 2016 email to expect a $2.4 million payment for consulting work he performed in Ukraine.

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano joined Shepard Smith to react to a bombshell New York Times report that Paul Manafort shared internal Trump campaign data with a Russian associate.

The filings show special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election, accused Manafort of sending campaign polling data to Konstantin Kilimnik, a former business associate of Manafort with connections in the GRU, Russia's military intelligence agency.

Jose Mourinho Comments On Real Madrid Rumours

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

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. Manafort, who sat in a wheelchair during a court hearing in October, also has severe gout, his lawyers said.

"Mueller's team met with pollster Tony Fabrizio in February 2018, an interview that has not been previously reported and takes on new significance after Manafort's attorneys revealed Tuesday that Mueller's team is still interested in how Manafort shared polling data with his Russian intelligence-linked colleague". President Trump denies any campaign collusion with Russian Federation. Manafort denied that he was trying to hide the meetings he had with Kilimnik, who has also been charged in Mueller's wide-ranging investigation, and instead had just forgotten about them until he'd been presented evidence to refresh his memory.

A jury convicted Manafort on eight counts of tax and bank-fraud in August during his trial in Alexandria, Virginia.
