Congressional investigators zoning in on Manafort communication with liaison abroad

By PIERRE THOMAS JOHN SANTUCCI • Sep 21, 2017, 5:05 PM ET

Sources with knowledge of the investigation surrounding former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort tell ABC News a key focus for congressional investigators is emails between Manafort and his longtime associate Konstantin Kilimnik.

Kilimnik, often referred to in these emails as “KK,” has served as Manafort’s liaison overseas since the mid-2000s. In the past, Kilimnik has been reported as a former Russian army trained linguist.
