:?:

Slight take on playing devil's advocate, but how did Manafort walk out with that data? How is polling data stored? Super sekrit stuffs that only Trump and Jared should have their hands on? Could Manafort have walked into an unguarded computer room and copied the file and went on his way with no one being the wiser?

But yeah, if Pauly really stole something from Trump w/o his knowledge, you'd think DOTUS would be ticked and relegate him to coffee boy.

The raw data (poll responses) would be in a computer file. I seriously doubt that Manafort handed over that, though it's entirely possible. More likely he shared crosstabs that the polling firm gave him - showing how the poll responses (opinions on trust in government, for example) varied by age, gender, race, etc. This is the sort of data that the Russians would find useful in targeting social media messages, fake news stories, etc.


Am I being detained?

Bloomberg
Mueller Says Gates Continues to Cooperate in Several Probes

Rick Gates, who worked on President Donald Trump’s campaign and inauguration, is still cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller on “several ongoing investigations,” Mueller’s office said in a court filing.

Gates, who pleaded guilty to conspiring to defraud the U.S., testified as a prosecution witness against his former boss, onetime Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Gates’s ongoing cooperation means it’s not appropriate to start his sentencing process, Mueller’s office wrote with defense lawyers in a status report filed Tuesday in federal court in Washington. The two sides asked they be allowed to file another report by March 15.

New docs just out from Mueller. No link yet, just reporting on MSNBC. Heavily redacted.

And for your reading pleasure - SPC's response in full. The FBI agent's declaration is a mere 30 pages long but with exhibits, the full response comes in at 188 pages.

BREAKING: Court docs say: “in 2017 Manafort told Gates that he was using intermediaries, including [redacted] to get people appointed in the Administration.” Translation: Putin chose Trump’s cabinet, via Manafort. Makes sense. Almost everyone appointed was linked to Putin.
