Senate Panel In Talks With Trump Jr., Manafort Over Closed-Door Testimony

Not Released

One of the congressional committees examining whether Donald Trump's presidential campaign colluded with Russian Federation issued a subpoena Tuesday to compel Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman, to provide testimony.

The co-founder of the firm tied to the controversial opposition research dossier on President Trump has agreed to speak to the Senate Judiciary Committee behind closed doors, the top lawmakers on the panel said Tuesday.

The Senate panel is one of several congressional committees investigating alleged Russian efforts to tilt the election in the Republican candidate's favor and possible collusion by Trump's campaign.

Yesterday, presidential adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner released an 11-page statement seeking to exonerate himself, but that left unanswered a number orf key questions.

UNAids said eastern and southern Africa were "leading the way" and had cut new HIV infections by almost a third since 2010. Eastern and southern Africa which accounts for more than half of all people suffering from HIV are leading the list.

Manafort is seen as a key figure in the investigation because of his participation in a June 2016 meeting that included the President's son, Donald Trump Jr., and a Russian lawyer.

Kushner met with members of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Mondy before making brief remarks to reporters.

"Paul Manafort met this morning, by previous agreement, with the bipartisan staff of the Senate Intelligence Committee and answered their questions fully", Jason Maloni, Manafort's spokesman, said in an email.

The House Intelligence Committee says it will meet with Kushner on Tuesday, a day after a private meeting scheduled with the Senate Intelligence Committee.

They added that they "may be willing to excuse" Manafort from a hearing if he agrees to provide documents and a transcribed interview. Democrats took over funding for Steele's project after Trump won the Republican nomination.

It said he was likely to be questioned about a June 2016 meeting in NY with a Russian lawyer.

Kushner also confirmed earlier media reports that he had suggested using Russian diplomatic facilities to set up secure communications between Trump adviser Michael Flynn, who would become Trump's national security adviser, and Russian officials. "Nothing else occurred", the statement said.
