Former Trump campaign Chairman Paul Manafort corresponded with someone who had apparent access to President Trump while he was under investigation, even after he told Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators and a federal grand jury he was not in contact with anyone in the Trump administration, Bloomberg News reports. In court documents filed Tuesday, prosecutors cited a May 26, 2018, text to Manafort by an unnamed individual who had access to Trump. “If I see POTUS one on one next week am I ok to remind him of our relationship?” the person wrote, according to the court filing. “Yes,” Manafort replied. “Even if not one on one.” Prosecutors reportedly outlined five areas on which Manafort misled investigators in the heavily redacted documents. Two others include Manafort’s contacts with Konstantin Kilimnik and a meeting Manafort had before he left the Trump campaign in August 2016. In the new filing, Mueller claims that Manafort communicated with Kilimnik—who is thought to be linked to Russian intelligence—between August 2016 and March 2018.
