Mueller Probing Manafort Meeting With Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno: Report
Special counsel Robert Mueller is looking into a meeting between ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno, CNN reported Tuesday. The meeting reportedly took place in 2017 in Quito, and Mueller has made inquiries about whether WikiLeaks or its founder, Julian Assange, came up during the sit-down. The revelation comes hours after The Guardian, citing unnamed sources, reported that Manafort met repeatedly in secret with Assange at London’s Ecuadorian embassy before WikiLeaks published hacked Democratic National Committee emails. Manafort has denied the meetings ever occurred.
