President Donald Trump has denied all allegations that his campaign colluded with the Russian government to subvert the 2016 presidential election, and denied knowing about any contact between Manafort and Kilimnik when approached by reporters on the White House's South Lawn.

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort departs from U.S. District Court in Washington, U.S., February 28, 2018. Trump did not elaborate and turned to another reporter with a question on a different topic. Instead, they said, they would be open to resolving the matter during pre-sentencing reports.

The New York Times reported that Gates also transferred polling data to Kilimnik in the spring of 2016.

In their filing, Manafort's lawyers said Mueller's team had access to all of their client's electronic devices, email accounts and passwords. He reportedly worked for Manafort conducting polls in Ukraine during the country's political campaigns in 2012 and 2013, earning a quarter of a million dollars.

In Coimbatore, mostly all the theatres screened both the movies and the first show was started at 4.30am in the morning. While the film had only released a day ago, piracy site TamilRockers has leaked the entire film online.

"Such a failure is unsurprising here, where these occurrences happened during a period when Mr. Manafort was managing a USA presidential campaign and had countless meetings, email communications, and other interactions with many different individuals, and traveled frequently", the Manafort attorneys argued.

But US prosecutors have since accused Manafort of lying to investigators, complicating his efforts to get a reduced sentence in exchange for his cooperation.

Manafort, former chair of the Trump campaign, pleaded guilty a year ago to conspiracy charges in Washington and faces sentencing in a separate case in Virginia, though none of the charges are directly concerned with the alleged collusion between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign. Jackson also said she'd review all the filings before deciding whether to hold a January 25 hearing on the issue.

A jury convicted Manafort on eight counts of tax and bank-fraud in August during his trial in Alexandria, Virginia.
