Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort used his campaign email to exchange messages with a contact in Ukraine who had ties to the Kremlin, a new report claims.

According to Politico, Manafort emailed with Konstantin Kilimnik, who worked for Manafort's consulting practice in Kiev, during President Donald Trump's campaign last year in regards to getting payment for work he had done and also trying to secure more work in Ukraine. Manafort reportedly used his Trump campaign email account to send the messages.

Manafort has done work for former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, and it was discovered last year that he had either earned or was owed $12.7 million for political consulting work for Ukraine's ruling political party.

Earlier Wednesday, The Washington Post reported that Manafort offered to brief a Russian oligarch with Kremlin ties on the 2016 presidential election last year. An email to Kilimnik discussing the proposition was sent July 7, 2016.

Manafort is one target of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe. It was reported earlier this week that the U.S. government electronically spied on Manafort last fall and into this year via a secret court order. He is being investigated for potential violations of IRS laws and other allegations regarding his consulting business and his potential ties to Russia.

Manafort may be indicted in the near future as part of Mueller's Department of Justice probe, according to a New York Times report.
