'Clearest sign yet of coordination': CNN host says Trump's 'no collusion' narrative is close to collapsing

CNN's Kate Bolduan on Wednesday said that the latest revelations about former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's activities during the 2016 presidential election showed that President Donald Trump may not be able to say "no collusion" for much longer.


During a discussion about Manafort sharing internal campaign polling data with suspected Russian operative Konstantin Kilimnik in 2016, Bolduan said that there just seems to be too much coordination between members of the Trump campaign and Russian agents to continue denying that any conspiracy took place.

"This is the clearest sign -- if it’s a sign -- yet of coordination," said Bolduan.

"Absolutely," agreed CNN reporter Sara Murray. "So the question is, why was Paul Manafort sharing this information? Why was he so in touch with Konstantin Kilimnik? Did Kilimnik want something from him and did Manafort want something from the Russians? And who else knew about all these interactions -- was this something that was confined to Paul Manafort and his deputy Rick Gates, or was this something that spread to other levels of the campaign?"

Murray cautioned, however, that Manafort's dealings with Kilimnik are just one sliver of information and added that there's still been "no broader answer" of whether the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 election.
