Paul Manafort Is Being Subpoenaed To Testify Before Congress


"While the Judiciary Committee was willing to cooperate on equal terms with any other committee to accommodate Mr. Manafort's request, ultimately that was not possible", Grassley and Feinstein said.

Meanwhile, the Senate Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena to former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort seeking his testimony at a public hearing on Wednesday.

As he prepares to speak with Congressional intelligence committee this week as part of their Russian Federation probes, Donald Trump Jr. has added another lawyer to his legal team, ABC News and Reuters reported on Sunday. "Simpson's attorney has asserted that his client will invoke his Fifth Amendment rights in response to the subpoena", the statement said.

One of the people said that Manafort also turned over his notes documenting the meeting.

He will speak with both the Senate and House intelligence committees this week following the stunning revelation that he met with a Kremlin-linked lawyer during the campaign.

After that meeting, Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the ranking Democrat on that committee who has been a fierce Trump critic, said Kushner's appearance was "very productive" and that "we had an opportunity to ask about a range of issues the Committee has been concerned about".

Before the rollout of GST on July 1, Opposition parties had protested claiming that the nation was not ready for GST. Meanwhile, the polling for the President election is underway at the Parliament and the various state Assemblies.

Kushner will meet Monday with the Senate Intelligence Committee and Tuesday with the House Intelligence Committee.

They said Manafort was willing to provide only a single transcribed interview to Congress, which would be available to the Judiciary Committee as well as other panels. Congressional committees, as well as a Justice Department special counsel, are investigating whether Trump associates coordinated with Russian Federation in that effort and whether the president has sought to hamper the investigations.

Manafort could be excused from the hearing by agreeing to the "production of documents and a transcribed interview", they said.

This will prove to a pivotal moment for the public to see - and assess - the willingness of Republican lawmakers to press a (former) top Trump campaign official on the details of the Trump campaign's interactions with Russian individuals and entities.

The three men are at the center of a controversial June 2016 with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. But he disputed that it was an effort to establish a "secret back channel". "Nothing else occurred", the statement said. He has also said that he "never knowingly spoken to Russian intelligence officers".
