Ex-Trump campaign head Manafort denies ever meeting with Wikileaks' Assange

WASHINGTON, Nov 27 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, staunchly denied ever meeting with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange on Tuesday, after the Guardian newspaper published a story alleging the two met at least three times, including once in 2016. “This story is totally false and deliberately libelous. I have never met Julian Assange or anyone connected to him,” Manafort said through a spokesman.

“We are considering all legal options against the Guardian, who proceeded with this story even after being notified by my representatives that it was false.” (Reporting by Sarah N. Lynch; editing by Jonathan Oatis)
