Russia sought 'synergy' with Trump campaign in late 2015: Mueller

A high-placed Russian offered Donald Trump's presidential campaign "synergy on a government level" in November 2015, well before previous reported contacts between the two sides, Special Counsel Robert Mueller said in a court filing Friday.

Washington, Dec 8 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News, app - 8th Dec, 2018 ) :A high-placed Russian offered Donald Trump's presidential campaign "synergy on a government level" in November 2015, well before previous reported contacts between the two sides, Special Counsel Robert Mueller said in a court filing Friday.

The unidentified Russian made the offer to Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen, proposing a meeting between then-Republican candidate Trump and Russian leader Vladimir Putin, the Mueller filing said.

"The person told Cohen that such a meeting could have a 'phenomenal' impact 'notonly in political but in a business dimension as well,'" the filing said.
