Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) called it a “very real question” whether President Trump could have knowingly or unknowingly been an agent of the Russian government during an interview on Sunday.

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Warner if he thought Trump was wittingly or unwittingly an agent of the Russians.

“Jake, I think the earlier evidence this week, where the president’s campaign manager – and we’re unaware whether the president knew – where the president’s campaign manager, at whose direction turned over confidential polling data to a known Russian agent, a known Russian agent, who has ties to Putin,” Warner said. “Why would you turn over that information?”

Warner then told Tapper that it was this kind of information that Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort gave the Russians that they would have used to interfere in the 2016 election.

“We don’t know the answer to that, yet I would hope that Mueller has got more indication. But it is a very real question,” Warner concluded.
