Mueller's team and attorneys for Manafort agreed in court last month to conduct informal discussions about the alleged lies before defense counsel responded.

Though there was no comment from Manaford's legal team, a new, corrected filing was quickly posted on the docket that no longer allowed the public to see the redacted paragraphs, The Hill reported.

The error resulted in Manafort's attorneys disclosing that Mueller has accused Manafort of sharing polling data during the 2016 presidential campaign with Konstantin Kilimnik, a business associate who is suspected of ties to Russia's military intelligence unit, the GRU. The Russian citizen, who began working for Manafort's consulting firm starting in 2005, has been charged with helping his former boss to obstruct Mueller's investigation of Russian interference into the 2016 election.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team said Manafort "lied about sharing polling data with Mr. Kilimnik related to the 2016 presidential campaign".

Mueller also has said in a previous court filing that Manafort lied about contacting administration officials after Trump took office.

Mr Mueller's team said Manafort had had a conversation with an unnamed individual who wanted "to use Mr Manafort's name as an introduction" if they ever met President Trump, according to the filings. Tuesday's revelation demonstrates that a member of the Trump campaign was having conversations with a Russian about Ukraine while the campaign was ongoing.

The disclosure suggests that one part of Mueller's probe is focusing on whether Kilimnik may have served as a back channel through Manafort to Russian Federation during the election.

"For several months Mr. Manafort has suffered from severe gout, at times confining him to a wheelchair, " the lawyers wrote.

In August, Manafort, 69, was convicted of financial fraud relating to his work as a political consultant in Ukraine, which pre-dated his role with Donald Trump's presidential campaign.

The latest allegations further detail how Manafort's work on the campaign intersected with his past global work with Mr Kilimnik.

Prosecutors also accused Manafort of telling a witness he "had contact" with another administration official. But the data could have provided Russians with insights on the US election. While it is unknown if the 2016 polling data was related to the Trump campaign, the fact that Manafort was the chairman of the Trump campaign during 2016, certainly doesn't bode well for those still denying that there was no collusion between the campaign and Russian Federation. He will be sentenced for those crimes in early February. "This does not constitute outreach by Mr. Manafort to the President", a redacted line in the filing claims, while another redacted sentence says another identified interaction is "hearsay purportedly offered by an undisclosed third party".

Manafort has pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges in Washington and faces sentencing in a separate case in Virginia.

However, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson could hold such a hearing if she found it necessary. Manafort's filing sheds little light on that transaction.

In addition to winning the case against Manafort, Mueller and other federal prosecutors have secured guilty pleas for various offenses from Trump's first national security advisor, Michael Flynn, former campaign aide Rick Gates, foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos and Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, among others.
