Didn’t know about allegations Manafort shared polling

H1 trump border address

There is no evidence that Trump was aware that Manafort was sharing the data with Kilimnik, who was described by Mueller in court documents previous year as having "ties to a Russian intelligence service".

Akhmetov is one of the richest men in Ukraine and bankrolled the Party of Regions, a Ukrainian political party aligned with Moscow that Manafort worked to bolster.

The information was shared around the time that Trump secured the GOP nomination, and most of the data was already public, The Times reported.

Still, the developments of Manafort's court filing Tuesday and the assertions Wednesday about the oligarchs confirm that Manafort had an interest in pocketing cash from a foreign country while he led Donald Trump's campaign. A spokesman for Manafort's defense team declined to comment on the incomplete redactions or on Mueller's allegations, but lawyers later filed a corrected version of the document.

In September, he agreed to plead guilty and cooperate with Mueller to avoid another trial in Washington federal court.

Paul Manafort arrives for a hearing at US District Court on June 15, 2018 in Washington.

That's the question, of course - will Manafort testify that Trump did know about it? Prosecutors say Manafort acknowledged the meeting only after being told that they were in the same city on the same day.

The Latest Federal agencies told to hold off pay raises
The White House and a spokesperson for the vice president did not respond to requests for comment from the Post . Congress enacted a law capping pay for top federal executives in 2013 and renewed it each year.

U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered Mueller to respond by January 14 with "factual and evidentiary basis" for why it is accusing Manafort of lying during his cooperation.

Russia, which illegally annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014, wanted a peace plan so the U.S. would remove the sanctions it imposed because of the invasion. But there has been no indication that Trump knew about Manafort's activities or that the recipients used the data to help Trump win the election.

Prosecutors alleged that Manafort lied about providing Kilimnik with the polling data.

Mueller's team has also charged Kilimnik with conspiracy to obstruct justice and obstruction of justice.

Manafort is scheduled to be sentenced February 8 by U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis III in Northern Virginia for his conviction on eight felony counts of bank and tax fraud.

Manafort earned millions from his Ukrainian political work over several years, which included wire transfers from Akhmetov and Lyovochkin through offshore bank accounts, prosecutors said at trial.
