The former campaign manager was one of three former aides to Hillary Clinton who were fired by President Donald Trump last year for allegedly misusing government resources.
Littel also spoke with CNN’s Anderson Cooper Thursday and said she was encouraged by the special prosecutor’s recent decision to seek to question former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort in connection with the Russian probe.
“I think that is very, very important that he be able to speak to the Russians, and I am hoping that we have that, and that they can testify and make their case,” she said.LITTEL SAYS TRUMP’S AGENT’S ACTIONS HAVE HAPPENED BEFORE Source CNN article Former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort has pleaded guilty to tax fraud, which could affect his chances of returning to the White House, a move that could affect the possibility of a Mueller probe.CNN reported Wednesday that Manafort agreed to pay $110 million to resolve charges of failing to report $18 million in income from the Ukraine.
