Tapper: Is Manafort Giving Polling Data To Person With Russian Links "Game, Set, Match" For Collusion?


CNN's Jake Tapper asked Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) if Paul Manafort sharing polling data with a person who is "believed to have links to Russian military intelligence" considered evidence of a conspiracy.

JAKE TAPPER, CNN HOST: I'm not, its right here. The top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Mark Warner, so your vice chairman on the Intelligence Committee, told CNN today that if it's true that Trump's then campaign chairman, Paul Manafort shared data -- internal holding data with Konstantin Kilimnik, who is believed to have links to Russian military intelligence, if that is true, then that's evidence of somebody on the Trump campaign giving the Russians information that they would have found helpful for their intelligence operation to interfere on the 2016 election. So if it's true, is that evidence of conspiracy? Is that game, set, match for the whole collusion thing?

SEN. KAMALA HARRIS (D-CA): It is -- certainly there's good reason to believe it is suspicious and probably linked. Let's not lose sight of one important fact. There is a guy by the name of Bob Mueller that is engaged in a very important investigation and it is imperative that to answer the questions you are asking, we let him complete his job without any interference.
