Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano argued this week that based on newly filed court papers, special counsel Robert Mueller could make the case that the Trump campaign had a “connection to Russian intelligence.”

Napolitano was weighing in Wednesday on details from the criminal case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort that leaked out into the public view the previous day.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The prosecutors accused Paul Manafort of lying to FBI agents in violation of his guilty plea to cooperate with them and they filed their allegations of the lies under seals. We don’t know what they were,” Napolitano said during a segment with Fox News host Shep Smith.

“Paul Manafort’s lawyer’s filed their answer and they forgot to seal part of it and the part they forgot to seal was that the FBI accused Paul Manafort of lying about whether or not he gave confidential polling data at the height of the campaign to a Russian oligarch who the FBI has identified as source for Russian intelligence,” he continued.

“This shows that Bob Mueller can demonstrate to a court without testimony of Paul Manafort, that the campaign had a connection to Russian intelligence and the connection involved information going from the campaign to the Russians,” Napolitano said.
