Manafort to share notes on meeting with Russian lawyer with Senate investigators

Not Released

Not Released

"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. "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.

Manafort - who attended an infamous 2016 meeting with Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer who supposedly had dirt on Hillary Clinton - had originally avoided a subpoena by agreeing to provide the Judiciary Committee with documents and submitting to an interview by the committee.

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner speaks to the media outside the White House in Washington, Monday, July 24, 2017, after meeting behind closed doors with the Senate Intelligence Committee on the investigation into p. The panel's leaders issued the subpoena to Manafort late Monday. Kushner cast himself as a political novice learning in real time to juggle "thousands of meetings and interactions" in a fast-paced campaign.

Mueller is examining contacts between Russian officials and Trump associates during and after the November 8 presidential election as part of a broader investigation into whether Russia tried to sway the election in favor of Trump.

Meanwhile, Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley and Democratic Sen.

"Let me be very clear", Kushner said afterward in a rare public statement at the White House. It will also be a crucial opportunity for them to demonstrate a backbone and to stand up to President Trump and his claims that the Russian Federation investigation is a "hoax", "witch hunt", or "fake news".

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

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. Emails released by Trump Jr. provide evidence that the campaign eagerly sought a meeting with Russian operatives after being promised information about Clinton, even after learning it was coming from the Russian government. He has also said that he "never knowingly spoken to Russian intelligence officers".
