The message was overshadowed by the TV address of the President to the construction of the wall, but was highly controversial: According to the Russia-special investigator Robert Mueller Donald trump's campaign Chairman Paul Manafort in the spring of 2016 has passed, so in the middle of the Republican pre-election campaign, poll data to his Russian Contact Konstantin Kilimnik. Most of it was not public, some of it is not – and could have enabled the Kremlin to conduct a targeted campaign in favor of Trumps in social media.
"the Big Story, new Information, it's called collusion," responded John Dean, former legal adviser to Richard Nixon and one of the few heroes of the Watergate scandal, on Tuesday on the news. Not only Kilimnik, with the Manafort since 2005 in the Ukraine worked together, according to the FBI's relations with Russian secret services.
