Didn't know about allegations Manafort shared polling

The interview gained new relevance after revelations that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort reportedly had a Ukrainian-born fixer, Konstantin Kilimnik - who Mueller has said has "ties to a Russian intelligence service" - sharing Trump campaign polling data with two pro-Russian Ukrainian oligarchs.

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. He referred Reuters to Schiff's statement that lawmakers on the committee "need to find out" about Manafort's interaction with Kilimnik on polling data. Manafort's lawyers said any incorrect statements by him were unintentional.

The information was shared around the time that Trump secured the GOP nomination, and most of the data was already public, The Times reported. Manafort pleaded guilty in September to conspiracy charges related to that Ukraine work, and had agreed to cooperate truthfully with Mueller's team.

He added: "They do those with genuine mental illness a great disservice". 'But please go ahead and shun them back into silence'. Callard spoke with Best Magazine about how depression forced her to take two months off from her role on Coronation Street .

"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. That could change, assuming that Trump's lying about this, but Mueller wouldn't have put this much effort into publicly undermining Manafort's credibility as a witness if that was a likely possibility. She also gave Manafort's lawyers until January 18 to respond to the special counsel's filings.

A jury convicted Manafort on eight counts of tax and bank-fraud in August during his trial in Alexandria, Virginia. He also has a March 5 sentencing before Jackson in Washington for his guilty plea on conspiracy against the USA and conspiracy to obstruct justice.
