Did not know Manafort shared campaign data with Russian partner, claims Trump

Did not know Manafort shared campaign data with Russian partner, claims Trump

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 USA prosecutors have linked to Russian intelligence.

The report from CNN adds more intrigue to the recent revelation that Manafort himself was accused by Mueller of sharing polling data with Konstantin Kilimnik, whom Mueller has alleged holds "ties to a Russian intelligence service", during the 2016 election.

Manafort spokesman Jason Maloni told the network the money was for work that occurred before the Trump campaign, and it was not in exchange for presidential campaign polling data.

The lawyers also said they reserved the right to fight back if Mueller brought new charges surrounding the allegations that Manafort lied to prosecutors.

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.

Donovan said the 5G E icon will be used in 400 markets across the United States where AT&T has deployed advanced LTE technologies. Now, Igal Elbaz, AT&T's senior vice president for wireless technology, has defended the move in an interview with Tom's Guide .

"Such a failure is unsurprising here, where these occurrences happened during a period when Mr. Manafort was managing a USA presidential campaign and had countless meetings, email communications, and other interactions with many different individuals, and traveled frequently", the Manafort attorneys argued. Trump did not elaborate and turned to another reporter with a question on a different topic. Since Robert Mueller made this a sticking point in seeking to overturn Manafort's plea deal, the answer thus far seems to be no.

Mueller is investigating Russian meddling in the campaign.

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

Manafort already faces lengthy prison sentences for charges brought by Mueller's office in Virginia and Washington, D.C.
