RUSSIA/TREASURY/TRUMP CAMPAIGN: “A Treasury Department statement Thursday [April 15, 2021] offered a potentially significant clue, asserting that Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian and Ukrainian political consultant, had shared sensitive campaign and polling information with Russian intelligence services.

Kilimnik has long been alleged by U.S. officials to have ties to Russian intelligence. But the statement in a broader Treasury Department sanctions announcement was perhaps the most direct link the U.S. government has ever drawn between the Trump campaign’s inner workings and the Kremlin’s intelligence services.”
