Special Counsel Robert Mueller has interviewed Tony Fabrizio, a pollster for Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, a revelation that raises the stakes for the recently uncovered allegation the Campaign Chair Paul Manafort lied to investigators about giving poll data to to a foreign national, according to CNN.

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 previous year. ABC's Jonathan Karl asked Trump.

Kilimnik worked with Manafort's consulting firm when he was representing pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine.

Special counsel Robert Mueller nearly certainly learned about top Trump campaign officials meeting up with Russians overseas using the same tools the Kremlin used to wage cyber warfare against the USA during the 2016 campaign.

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort departs from U.S. District Court in Washington, U.S., February 28, 2018.

When a reporter asked about Manafort, Trump said: "No, I didn't know anything about it".

The information was shared around the time that Trump secured the GOP nomination, and most of the data was already public, The Times reported. 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. 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.

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.
