Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has been going on for more than 18 months already, and has resulted in numerous indictments and guilty pleas from a number of top aides in Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Paul Manafort is one of those on the list, and on Tuesday, badly redacted court documents showed that Trump’s former campaign manager had at least three confirmed meetings with Russian-intelligence-linked associate Konstantin Kilimnik during the 2016 elections, according to a report by CNN.

One of those meetings was about a Ukraine peace deal, while another saw Manafort sharing polling data from the election with Kilimnik. The third was a meeting between the pair in Madrid during the time of the campaign in 2016, although the contents of that meeting weren’t specified. Manafort’s attorneys admitted to all three of the meetings, according to the filings.
