Manafort Meets With Senate Intel While Under A Separate Senate Subpoena

Sen. Susan Collins on

"A$3 subpoena was issued to compel Mr. Manafort's participation in Wednesday's hearing", the two senators said in their statement. It is not clear what questions the committee asked Manafort.

It's possible the transcript of Tuesday's interview with the Intelligence Committee could be shared with the Judicial Committee and satisfy the subpoena - but in a statement, Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein said the interview wasn't being made available to them.

Meanwhile, the Senate Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena to former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort seeking his testimony at a public hearing on Wednesday.

Simpson's lawyer said compelling his client to appear at the FARA hearing was "a pretext for an exploration of Fusion GPS' reported work, on behalf of other clients, to investigate the ties of Donald J. Trump, his campaign and their associates to Russian Federation".

Homeland Security to allow 15000 more visas for seasonal workers
But Congress did not renew the returnees exemption when it expired last fall, effectively curbing the number of available visas. Businesses can apply for the visas starting this week and foreign workers can stay employed from four to 10 months.

Neither Manafort nor his consulting firm registered as a foreign agent until late June, when the firm retroactively filed papers showing that the firm had received $17.1 million over two years from the pro-Russia Ukrainian political party. In the statement, Kushner said he "did not collude with Russian Federation".

Three members of Donald Trump's inner circle face congressional investigators this week, and with the president talking about pardons for his family and warning Special Counsel Robert Mueller not to probe to deeply, the stakes could hardly be higher. 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".

Manafort could be excused from the hearing by agreeing to the "production of documents and a transcribed interview", they said. Democrats took over funding for Steele's project after Trump won the Republican nomination. Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, has released emails that showed he welcomed the prospect of receiving damaging information at the meeting about Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

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. He has also said that he "never knowingly spoken to Russian intelligence officers".
