Judiciary committee to pull Manafort subpoena

Judiciary committee to pull Manafort subpoena

"While we were willing to accomodate Mr. Manafort's request to cooperate with the committee's investigation without appearing at Wednesday's hearing, we were unable to reach an agreement for a voluntary transcribed interview with the Judiciary Committee", committee chairman Chuck Grassley and ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein said in a statement.

The other person says that Manafort has agreed to additional interviews with the Senate Intelligence Committee staff. 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 they were willing to continue talks to excuse Manafort from the hearing if he agreed to voluntarily provide documents and an interview to their committee.

The two said that late Monday night they issued a subpoena to compel Manafort's participation in Wednesday's hearing. He has now provided the committee with notes he took at the time, one of the people said. "And, so, if he feels he can't come and he's willing to negotiate in good faith there are other accommodations that can be made for him".

The panel had requested that both appear at a hearing scheduled for Wednesday, and threatened to issue subpoenas if they refused. Manafort "answered their questions fully", said his spokesman, Jason Maloni.

The committee also removed Donald Trump Jr. from the list of witnesses scheduled for Wednesday's public hearing.

Turkey condemns North Korea's missile test
President Donald Trump has said he will not allow North Korea to obtain an ICBM that can deliver a nuclear warhead. The missile launch was meant as a "stern warning" for the United States , North Korea's state news agency said.

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

On Tuesday Manafort met with Senate Intelligence Committee staff, providing his recollection of the Veselnitskaya meeting and agreeing to turn over contemporaneous notes of the gathering past year, according to people familiar with the closed-door interview.

Emails sent to Donald Trump Jr, the president's son, before the meeting show he agreed to meet with Russian attorney, Natalia Veselnitskaya, after being told she was a Russian government lawyer, bearing damaging information about Trump's opponent Hillary Clinton that was being shared as part of a Russian government effort to help his father's campaign. The people who demanded anonymity to discuss the closed-door interview say that Manafort's interview with committee staff was limited to the topic of the June 2016 meeting.

A US Senate panel has issued a subpoena to force Paul Manafort, a former campaign manager for President Donald Trump, to appear at a hearing as part of its probe into Russia's role in the 2016 presidential election.

His statement describes a December meeting with Flynn and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in which Kushner and Kislyak discussed establishing a secure line for the Trump transition team and Moscow to communicate about policy in Syria.
