Paul Manafort subpoenaed by Senate Judiciary Committee

Paul Manafort subpoenaed by Senate Judiciary Committee

"Therefore, [Monday] evening, a subpoena was issued to compel Mr. Manafort's participation".

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".

Grassley and Feinstein said in their statement: "Glenn Simpson, through his attorney, has declined to voluntarily attend Wednesday's Judiciary Committee hearing regarding compliance with the Foreign Agents Registration Act".

The committee wanted Mr. Manafort to testify on enforcement of the Foreign Agents Registration Act and Russia's attempts to influence USA elections. He acknowledged four meetings with Russians during and after Mr. Trump's victorious White House bid.

Paul Manafort (right), then-campaign manager for then-Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, is interviewed by journalist John Dickerson on the floor of the Republican National Convention at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland on July 17, 2016. The panel's leaders issued the subpoena to Manafort late Monday.

Representatives from the agencies managing the incident will provide an operational briefing and be available for questions. The blaze came within 35 miles (56 kilometers) of Yosemite, where campgrounds were open, park spokesman Scott Gediman said.

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.

Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley and Democratic Sen. The president also has denied knowing about the meeting until recently. Manafort has become a central figure, as investigators look into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation in part because of Manafort's extensive pro-Russia connections. 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. "We may be willing to excuse him from Wednesday's hearing if he would be willing to agree to production of documents and a transcribed interview". The meeting was pitched to him as a Russian government effort to help his father win the election, and a publicist promised the lawyer would have damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

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.

He also acknowledged meeting with a Russian banker, Sergey Gorkov, at the request of Kislyak but said no specific policies were discussed.
