Trump says he knew nothing about Manafort's dealings with Russian

President Donald Trump has denied all allegations that his campaign colluded with the Russian government to subvert the 2016 presidential election, and denied knowing about any contact between Manafort and Kilimnik when approached by reporters on the White House's South Lawn.

That information was included in a court filing this week that appeared to inadvertently include details not meant to be made public and indicates a pathway by which the Russians could have had access to Trump campaign data.

"This shows that Bob Mueller can demonstrate to a court, without the testimony of Paul Manafort, that the campaign had a connection to Russian intelligence and the connection involved information going from the campaign to the Russians", Napolitano said.

Jackie Speier, a Democratic member of the House Intelligence Committee, said the revelations raised new questions about possible "collusion" between Trump's election team and Russian Federation.

In the court filing Tuesday that failed to properly redact the sealed materials, Manafort's attorneys also revealed that Mueller had accused their client of exchanging a text message with an unidentified third-party who was asking permission to use Manafort's name "as an introduction in the event the third-party met the President".

Kilimnik worked with Manafort's consulting firm when he was representing pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine. President Trump denies any campaign collusion with Russian Federation. They since confirmed that he was interviewed by Mueller's team. He entered a plea agreement with special counsel Robert Mueller on September 14, 2018, but prosecutors have since alleged that Manafort has violated the terms of the deal by lying about certain topics. Jackson also said she'd review all the filings before deciding whether to hold a January 25 hearing on the issue. He also has a March 5 sentencing before Jackson in Washington for his guilty plea on conspiracy against the US and conspiracy to obstruct justice.
