Top Russian officials 'discussed how to influence Donald Trump through his aides' before electionSenior Russian intelligence and political officials were caught by American intelligence agents discussing how to insert influence over Donald Trump’s campaign last year, the New York Times reports. American spies collected information last year on conversations that focused on Paul Manafort, then the Trump campaign chairman, and Michael Flynn, who later got a job in the White House as a national security adviser but was forced to step down from that post because he misrepresented conversations he had with Russians to Vice President Mike Pence.
