Mueller owes the public, his CLIENT, a duty to explain why he apparently concluded this was NOT evidence of a conspiracy:
“Manafort suspected of sharing polling data with associate linked to Russian intelligence.” 1/ https://thehill.com/policy/national-security/424380-redaction-error-in-court-filing-reveals-manafort-shared-polling-info …
As @UNSEATpac points out, we know that Manafort shared the polling data only because of a flawed redaction in one of the indictments. Why was this redacted in the first place? Was Mueller NEVER going to tell the public?! If so, why? 2/
If it’s because it’s part of the counter-intelligence investigation, then Mueller should explain that there WAS evidence of a conspiracy but he did not include it because it is part of the counter-intelligence investigation. 3/
