Pres. Trump: Didn't know about allegations Manafort shared polling

H1 trump border address

A prominent Ukrainian tycoon denied Thursday requesting or receiving USA polling data from Paul Manafort, following revelations in a court filing Tuesday that pointed to coordination between the former Trump campaign chairman and the Russian government.

Manafort earned millions of dollars doing political consulting work for Ukraine and received multiple wire transfers from Lyovochkin and Akhmetov, special counsel Robert Mueller's team said during Manafort's trial last summer.

They say the same about his recollection of sharing polling data with Kilimnik related to the campaign.

Sony's PlayStation Now service is already up and running, and charges players $99.99 a year for access to more than 700 games. These online games will be hosted by cloud servers and streamed over the internet, giving users the hardware-flexibility.


In remarks Thursday morning before he departed to the Texas border, President Trump repeated there was "no collusion" and he did not know "anything" about Manafort sharing the data.

The information was revealed in a court filing by Manafort's lawyer that was not properly redacted.

Trump, asked by the New York Post in November whether he was considering a pardon Manafort, said that he "wouldn't take it off the table".

Macedonian parliament agrees to change country's name, paving way to European Union membership
Greek nationalists argue that the name "Macedonia" can only refer to the Greek province of the same name. Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Kammenos will meet Sunday morning to discuss their differences.


A spokesman for Manafort declined to comment about the initial filing, which was submitted in federal court in response to charges that Manafort lied to the special counsel's prosecutors while meeting with them on a dozen occasions as part of his guilty plea last September. They since confirmed that he was interviewed by Mueller's team.

In their filing, Manafort's lawyers said Mueller's team had access to all of their client's electronic devices, email accounts and passwords. Manafort's lawyers said any incorrect statements by him were unintentional. 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. President Trump denies any campaign collusion with Russian Federation. It is one of the strongest pieces of evidence yet that there was active cooperation between the Trump campaign and the Russian government's efforts to influence the 2016 election.

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.
