Fox News Shep Smith and Andrew Nepolitano now see proof of 'collusion' between Trump's team and Russia
Paul Manafort’s lawyers, through a PDF malfunction, revealed this week that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has evidence that Manafort, when he served as Trump’s campaign chairman, shared internal campaign polling data with an associate believed to be a Russian intelligence asset.
