"The lede on any other night"
As Anderson Cooper said during the 8pm hour of "AC360," there was one story that broke Tuesday that would have been "the lede on any other night," had Trump not delivered an address on border security. Parts of a court filing that were meant to be redacted by Paul Manafort's lawyers, but really were not, indicated on Tuesday that Mueller believes Manafort shared polling data in 2016 with Konstantin Kilimnik, a person the United States believes is linked to Russian military intelligence.
While the story was overshadowed by Trump's prime time address, it did receive a significant amount of attention. On CNN, it was being covered even in the moments leading up to Trump's speech. Pamela Brown characterized it on "The Situation Room" as the "biggest window yet" into Manafort's investigation into possible collusion. And NYT's story stated bluntly, "The document provided the clearest evidence to date that the Trump campaign may have tried to coordinate with Russians during the 2016 presidential race."
