INTERACTIVE: 100+ Contacts Between the Trump Campaign and Russia
As a result of an improperly redacted court filing this week by former Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort’s lawyers, new details emerged revealing that the Trump campaign shared private polling data with individuals linked to Russian intelligence during the 2016 election, bringing the current count of contacts between Trump campaign and transition officials and Russia-linked figures above 100 for the first time.
- There were 101 known contacts between Trump’s team and Russia-linked operatives during the campaign and transition.
- Those contacts included at least 28 meetings.
- 16 members of the Trump team participated in these contacts, and 12 more are confirmed to have known about them. Those 28 people include all three campaign leaders, Donald Trump Jr., and Ivanka Trump.
