The interview gained new relevance after revelations that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort reportedly had a Ukrainian-born fixer, Konstantin Kilimnik - who Mueller has said has "ties to a Russian intelligence service" - sharing Trump campaign polling data with two pro-Russian Ukrainian oligarchs.

"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.

"No, I didn't know anything about it", he told reporters at the White House.

Bizarre Ear Condition Makes Woman Unable to Hear Men's Voices
The night before she was unable to hear her boyfriend's voice, Chen also said she felt nauseous and had ringing in her ears. According to Thigpen Hearing Center , many people with this condition don't even realize they have it.

The revelation Manafort, who is now being held in an Alexandria, Virginia, jail, shared the data emerged via a paperwork snafu in a Washington, D.C. court this week.

Manafort is awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to conspiracy against the United States and agreeing to cooperate with US Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 contest and possible collusion with trump's campaign. President Trump denies any campaign collusion with Russian Federation.

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 a year ago. 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.

Rudy Giuliani, a lawyer for Trump who has repeatedly criticized the Mueller probe as a fruitless "witch hunt", dismissed the sharing of data with Kilimnik as inconsequential.
