Trump denies knowledge of Manafort's alleged contact with suspected ex-Russian agent

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.

He added: "I know this Australian Open is going to be big as well. and I can do a lot better than I've done in the past". With the encounter played in good spirits, Tomic claimed match point when he dished up a freaky trick serve.

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.
