In the US, special Counsel Robert Mueller has filed a new set of papers in a federal court in Washington, in connection with the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election. 

The documents, however, do not answer the central question of whether US President Donald Trump or his associates conspired with the Russians. But, according to a report in the Washington Post, they reveal a previously unreported contact from a Russian to President Trump's inner circle during the campaign.

In his filings, Mr. Muller said, Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign manager, lied to prosecutors about his contacts with the White House and an associate with suspected ties to Russian intelligence.

In another court submission, Robert Mueller said Michael Cohen, the former personal attorney of Trump, has provided him "with useful information. It concerns certain discrete Russia-related matters core to investigation that Cohen obtained by virtue of his regular contact with company executives during the campaign.

A federal court in New York is scheduled to give its sentencing order against Cohen on the 12th of this month. In August, he had pleaded guilty to the charges of campaign-finance violations and tax frauds. 

Federal prosecutors have recommended substantial prison time for Cohen. Meanwhile, the White House said none of these filings showed any involvement of the president.
