The known details about the Manafort-Kilimnik meeting may be the closest the public has to a "smoking gun" on Russian collusion, Bertrand wrote, noting that the former Trump campaign chair had his deputy Rick Gates send 75 pages of polling data to the suspected Russian spy.

Pointing to fresh evidence of anti-Trump bias in the Justice Department, President Trump said Friday that special counsel Robert Mueller should never have been appointed, and his forthcoming report shouldn't exist.

The U.S. Special Counsel's Office on Friday asked a court to delay sentencing for U.S. President Donald Trump's former deputy campaign chairman, Rick Gates, amid "ongoing investigations" stemming from the Russian Federation investigation. It seems quite clear that Gates is being quite helpful and, most likely, assisting Mueller with the investigation into President Trump's inauguration.

Gates pleaded guilty previous year to conspiracy and false statement charges related to Ukrainian lobbying and political consulting he carried out with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Unlike Manafort, who stood trial and was found guilty in one case in Virginia before pleading guilty in another case in Washington, Gates agreed early on to cooperate with Mueller's team and took the stand to testify against his former business partner.

Gates pleaded guilty in February 2018 to conspiracy against the United States and lying to investigators.

He said allegations of collusion between his campaign and Moscow were "nothing more than an excuse by the Democrats for losing an Election that they thought they were going to win".
