Senate Judiciary Committee subpoenas Paul Manafort to testify in Russian Federation probe

26 July 2017

"That's why the Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena for Paul Manafort".

Trump Jr. also hired Alan Futerfas as a lawyer after reports detailed meetings past year between Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer.

The committee said last week that it would not subpoena Manafort as it negotiated an agreement with him to provide documents and be interviewed by committee members and staff.

Senate judiciary committee chairman Chuck Grassley and the top Democrat on the panel, Dianne Feinstein, issued a joint statement Tuesday saying that Manafort and the top members of the committee were "unable to reach an agreement for a voluntary transcribed interview with the Judiciary Committee".

Manafort, whose name seems to come up so much in this administration's Russia probe that I assumed he was Russian (spoiler: He's not), was attempting to provide a statement to the committee without having to appear before the members, but committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and ranking member Sen.

The White House continues to downplay the investigation and new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci said on CNN's "State of the Union" that Trump remains less than convinced by the intelligence reports.

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. Investigators are also probing whether Manafort engaged in money laundering, according to The Wall Street Journal.

On Monday, he answered questions from staff on the Senate's intelligence panel.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team is examining Manafort's financial and real estate records in NY as well as his involvement in Ukrainian politics, the officials said. But Mr. Kushner insisted that he did not collude with Russian Federation and that "all of my actions were proper". Democrats took over funding for Steele's project after Trump won the Republican nomination. 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.

The three men are at the center of a controversial June 2016 with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

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

The president's oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., has added a lawyer with congressional experience to his legal team, the lawyer told Reuters on Sunday.
