This is on the front page of the NYT's this morning.

They're actually going to claim the 'heart' of the Mueller probe is some supposed deal between the Trump campaign & Putin gov't over easing of Russian sanctions for the invasion of Ukraine.
Russia got no sanctions relief and if Mueller's SC team had any evidence Manafort was discussing sanctions relief and this was the heart of their probe they'd have said so long before now and it would certianly have leaked.
Russia never got *any* sanctions relief under Trump. They got the exact opposite. More sanctions, a bunch of dead Russian "mercenaries" in Syria and now Trump is pulling out of the INF treaty because Russia is violating it.
Note how the report fudges the timeline here. Russia invaded Ukraine in 2014. that was....1 1/2 years before Donald Trump ran for President.

Manafort joined the Trump campaign in March 2016. He departed in August 2016.
I don't see anything tying Manafort's discussions with Kilimnik to the 5 months he was inside the Trump campaign.
This isn't even a leak from inside the Mueller Special Counsel's office. This several reporters reading a heavily redacted transcript and talking themselves into believing Mueller's about to indict more people based on a supposed deal to give Russia sanctions relief.
