Mueller Thinks Paul Manafort Shared Trump Polling Data With Russian Operative


WASHINGTON ― Attorneys for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort accidentally revealed in a court filing Tuesday that the special counsel team led by Robert Mueller has alleged their client lied about sharing polling data with a Russian operative.

Manafort’s lawyers ― in a poorly redacted court filing responding to the special counsel’s claim that Manafort broke his September 2018 plea agreement by lying to investigators ― inadvertently revealed that Mueller’s team alleged that “Manafort lied about sharing polling data with [Konstantin Kilimnik] related to the 2016 presidential campaign.”


Kilimnik, who worked closely with Manafort, is believed to have close ties to Russian intelligence.

2. From the title of the thread --

I thought the Russian operative was the orange buffoon, but I see it was different Russian operative.

6. Think about why polling data would be shared with the Russians.

They changed the vote tallies?

8. Don't know, but...


I don't think revealing this was an "accident" on Manafort's lawyers part.

Letting Trump see what Mueller has?
