New Britain's Manafort Called To Testify Before Senate Judiciary Committee

CNN reported Thursday that Grassley plans to make his request to the president's eldest son via a letter.

Manafort would also be asked about his participation in a Trump Tower meeting last June with President Donald Trump's eldest son and son-in-law, where the goal was to hear potentially damaging information about Hillary Clinton from a Russian lawyer.

Trump Jr., in addition to being the president's son, was deeply involved in his presidential campaign.

Manafort said the meeting in a package of information he provided to the Senate and House intelligence committees, who have been investigating potential coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, as is Robert Mueller, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director appointed by the Justice Department as the special counsel. In light of the revelation of the meeting between Trump Jr., and the Russian attorney, which Manafort reportedly participated in by phone, Grassley said the questioning could go beyond possible collusion with Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 election.

His panel is investigating Russian meddling in the US election.

While Grassley spoke with reporters Wednesday morning, the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for Federal Bureau of Investigation director nominee Christopher Wray was in session.

Trump Jr. and Goldstone eventually set June 9 as the date for the meeting.

Trump Jr. told Fox News' Sean Hannity Tuesday night that he would be willing to testify under oath about the meeting, which he said yielded no useful information and instead focused on adoptions.

The legislators spoke the next day after Trump Jr. released some emails that showed his willingness to listen to the damaging materials about Clinton y the Russian lawyer.

Grassley said there will be a hearing within days on the lax enforcement. Trump Jr.'s brother-in-law, Jared Kushner, and campaign chairman Paul Manafort also attended the 20 minute session.

The "Steele dossier" is a report that is believed to have been funded by a Hillary Clinton backer and was spread widely among politicians and journalists with the intention of damaging Trump with information that has been widely debunked.

President Donald Trump announced his nominee for Federal Bureau of Investigation director in a post on Twitter June 7.

Lawyers for President Donald Trump have raised the possibility that the request for the meeting could have been part of a smear campaign against him, trying to tie him and his campaign to Russian Federation. "[Dianne] Feinstein and I have the power to issue a subpoena", Grassley said.
