Manafort denies meeting WikiLeaks' Assange

Manafort denies meeting WikiLeaks' Assange

Convicted felon Paul Manafort, a day after being accused by special counsel Robert Mueller of lying repeatedly to FBI investigators, claims he has never met WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, which The Guardian reported on Tuesday.

"This story is totally false and deliberately libellous", said a statement issued through his spokesman.

According to a report from The Guardian, former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort visited WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange multiple times, including shortly before WikiLeaks released hacked emails from the Clinton campaign and the DNC.

The organization followed up that tweet by retweeting a post by Hanna Jonasson, stating, "The authors of the bogus Guardian story, Dan Collyns and Luke Harding, were in Ecuador 10 days ago with US-funded Villavicencio, who they have previously bylined with in bogus stories".

Instead of citing official logs, the Guardian's latest reporting relies heavily on SENAIN's document, which critics argued is questionable at best given that SENAIN may have political motivations to discredit WikiLeaks for publishing secret agency documents in the past.

"I have never met Julian Assange or anyone connected to him", the statement said.

The outlet's sources say the first alleged meeting between Manafort and Assange occurred in 2013; The Guardian cites an internal Ecuadorian intelligence document that lists a "Paul Manaford" as one of the visitors; the list also allegedly cites "Russians". In June, WikiLeaks released emails obtained from these hacks.

Copa Libertadores cup final called off
On Saturday, Boca said they were in no position to play the game due to the injured parties needing medical treatment at hospital. Three years ago, a match between Boca and River was abandoned at half time after fans attacked River players with pepper spray.

The Guardian report did not specify when in March 2016 Manafort allegedly met with Assange.

The Trump campaign announced at the end of March that they were bringing in Manafort to help corral delegates in the lead up to that July's Republican National Convention.

The report didn't identify the sources for its reporting.

"I don't know about it and if I don't know about it, he doesn't know it", Giuliani told the Daily News.

"For things that have to do with Mr. Manafort, I refer you to his attorneys to address that", Sanders said. Conspiracy theorist and Stone pal Jerome Corsi said Monday he is rejecting a plea deal from the special counsel's office and expects to be indicted. His contacts with Trump's campaign have been a focus of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election on behalf of Trump.

U.S. investigators are scrutinising whether the Trump campaign was aware of Wikileaks' role in the leaking of Democratic emails that were allegedly stolen by Russian hackers during the American presidential race two years ago.
