Mueller Met With Trump's Campaign Pollster, a Former Manafort Associate

Senior Democratic lawmakers called on Wednesday for further investigation into a revelation that in 2016 Donald Trump's then-presidential election campaign chairman gave polling data to a man USA prosecutors have linked to Russian intelligence.

Trump took questions Thursday on the South Lawn before leaving for an event at the southern border. "We'll have to see".

Manafort's defense team was responding to Mueller's accusations that he lied to the special counsel's investigators about his contacts with Russians during the campaign after pleading guilty previous year.

Legal experts told ABC News this week that sharing campaign polling data with a foreign person is not a crime, but could be an important piece to the puzzle concerning possible Trump campaign coordination with Russians during the 2016 campaign - a subject being investigated by special counsel Robert Mueller's office. "At the time, the special counsel had been digging into Manafort's finances and political work ahead of his trial".

The pollster, Tony Fabrizio, worked with Manafort on Ukrainian elections before performing polling for the Trump campaign after Manafort came on as campaign chairman. However, Manafort wrote in one August 2016 email to his accountant that he expected a payment of $2.4 million in November 2016 for work he did in Ukraine, according to trial documents.

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. Instead, they said, they would be open to resolving the matter during pre-sentencing reports. Prosecutors say Manafort acknowledged the meeting only after being told that they were in the same city on the same day. President Trump denies any campaign collusion with Russian Federation.

In addition to the polling data revelation, the filing also showed that Mueller believes Manafort lied to prosecutors about his discussions with Kilimnik about a "Ukrainian peace plan" and a previously undisclosed meeting between Manafort and Kilimnik in Madrid. 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.
