Sam Clovis, a top adviser to President Donald Trump during his election campaign, Thursday withdrew his candidacy for a senior administration post, just days after he was linked to another aide who pleaded guilty in the probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.A source familiar with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation identified Clovis as the unnamed campaign supervisor in a court filing who had discussions with former Trump foreign policy adviser George Papadapoulos about efforts to improve U.S.-Russian relations and setting up meetings between senior Trump campaign and Russian officials.Mueller's team is probing allegations by U.S. intelligence agencies and others that Russia interfered in the election to undermine Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and help Trump.
