Senate Intelligence Committee list of interviewees expands amid Trump Jr. email controversy

Donald Trump’s Russia Lawyer Cracks Up And Threatens A Stranger

Aside from concerns about Manafort's legal woes, Grassley said it "obviously would be appropriate" for members of the 15-person committee to question Manafort about his role in a June 9, 2016, meeting with a Russian lawyer; Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner; and the president's son, Donald Trump Jr.

Sen. Chuck Grassley said Wednesday he may subpoena the one-time chairman of Donald Trump's campaign committee to tell the Senate Judiciary Committee what he knows about a meeting a year ago between Trump's son and a Russian lawyer said to be offering "dirt" on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

"I just think he would welcome the opportunity to say whatever he wants to say", Grassley said about the younger Trump.

Manafort ran Trump's campaign from March to August of 2016 before resigning amid news reports that he received illegal payments for lobbying work in the Ukraine, where he worked for a prime minister who had close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

April 12: Maloni announced Manafort meant to officially register as a foreign agent.

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday urged President Donald Trump's eldest son to testify to a congressional committee about alleged links between Trump's team and Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential election campaign.

His panel is investigating Russian meddling in the US election.

"It is unclear how she was still in the country for that meeting, despite being denied a visa beforehand and her parole purportedly expiring on January 7, 2016", Grassley wrote, according to a statement and copy of the letter released Wednesday.

After the New York Times initially reported the meeting, Trump Jr. said that he believed he would be given opposition research against Clinton and maintained that he did nothing wrong or out of the ordinary. "I am not going to tell you now".

"My son Donald did a good job last night", President Trump wrote on Twitter.

As part of its oversight of the Department of Justice, Grassley said the committee has an interest in learning more about whether the meeting violated the Foreign Agent Registration Act, which requires people representing foreign countries in a political capacity to disclose that relationship and information about related activities and finances.
