2/ "During the same period, Manafort dispersed $531k to Kilimnik, his translator and fixer in Ukraine, for 'professional services.' According to a report in Bloomberg about Manafort’s Ukrainian ventures, Fabrizio is included in e-mail chains with Manafort and Kilimnik."
3/ It was "Paul Manafort who decided to hire Tony Fabrizio as the [Trump] campaign’s chief pollster."
4/ "The contested swing states that Trump narrowly—and surprisingly—won, such as Michigan and Wisconsin, were also places where both the Trump campaign and Russia’s Internet Research Agency focused their efforts."
5/ "Herein lies at least one answer to the question of why Russia would want the Trump campaign’s polling data: it potentially offered demographic targets for Russia’s bots and propaganda."
