Trump’s Former Campaign Manager Paul Manafort Shared Polling Data From The 2016 Presidential Election “With A Business Associate Tied To Russian Intelligence”

 In Russia   Last Updated: January 12, 2019

According to a court filing revealed on Tuesday January 8, 2019, Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort “shared political polling data [related to the 2016 Presidental election] with a business associate tied to Russian intelligence.”

The information was intended for Konstantin Kilimnik who is believed to be linked to Russian military intelligence.  “There are two known meetings during the campaign between Manafort and Kilimnik.”

Manafort was removed from his job as Trump’s campaign manager after documents revealed he had been hired to promote the interests of the Russian government and had received payments for this work.  Manafort also retroactively registered as a foreign agent working for a pro-Russia group in Ukraine.
