Paul Manafort Lied To Investigators About Feeding U.S. Polling Data To Russian Spy: Files

Source: huff post

Trump’s former campaign manager “lied in multiple ways and on multiple occasions,” according to newly unsealed federal court documents.




Former Donald Trump campaign manager and now-pardoned felon Paul Manafort lied repeatedly to investigators about arranging to share polling data on U.S. citizens with a Russian spy, according to federal prosecutors.

The revelation was included in court files unsealed Monday by U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson.

Manafort lied about his relationship with spy Konstantin Kilimnik during the time Robert Mueller was the special counsel investigating suspected Russian collusion with the Trump campaign in order to manipulate the presidential election, according to the files.

Manafort and his campaign deputy Rick Gates “periodically” fed internal polling data from the Trump campaign to Kilimnik, according to the documents submitted to the District of Columbia federal court. He then passed the information on to the Kremlin.

Kilimnik, a “known Russian Intelligence Services agent,” was one of 16 individuals and 16 entities sanctioned last month by the Treasury Department for conducting “Russian government-directed attempts to influence the 2020 U.S. presidential election,” according to a White House fact sheet.

3. Isn't that what the Senate Intelligence committee concluded a year ago?

Not surprised that unsealed Mueller records would indicate the same thing

10. and today i heard a rw blowhard saying kilimnik was working for the obama admin. i guess as a

double agent or something, i guess suggesting manafort was getting set up by the obama clinton soros baby-eating deep state....

that was a fill in for limbaugh so it's probably part of an official republican excusemaking and maybe originating with the kremlin

7. Every time Trump said, "fake news" about the connections between the Trump Campaign and Russia ....

... he was lying. And the reason he was lying was because he and the GOP could not speak to the real
facts and that was Trump and other republicans* were installed by Russia in 2106.

What Manafort gave the Russian Spy, Konstantin Kilimnik, was not just polling data but data analytics
(weaponized data) or what could be turned into data analytcs so the Russian knew where and by how
much they had to rat fuck our elections to install Trump.


* Russ Feingold was @ > 90% chance of winning back his seat in the senate in 2016. Hillary was @ about
the same % of winning the state too. Russia was into the state @ the county levels**. Either messing with
voting returns or working with the republicans in removing registered voters from voter rolls. Something like
200,000 were removed from voter rolls in Milwaukee and Dane (Madison) Counties. Trump won the state
by something like 10 or 20 thousand votes.

8. Trump COLLUDED with Russia. Openly. Repeatedly.

Manafort was Trump's campaign manager until this got too hot and he left the campaign (but carried on the work).

This was known AT THE TIME, and nothing happened. Now he's pardoned.

Same story over and over: rich white men with no ethics paying no price (OK, Manafort actually did time, but Former Guy will die on a gold toilet).

11. None of the pardoned Trump scum will ever really be safe.

They've made plenty of enemies along the way.
