Grassley may subpoena Trump Jr. to testify to Senate panel

Grassley may subpoena Trump Jr. to testify to Senate panel

The Senate Judiciary panel intends to question the campaign manager Paul Manafort and send him, if necessary, chairman of the Republican Committee Chuck Grassley said.

House of Representatives Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi claimed on Tuesday that the meeting between Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Manafort and Veselnitskaya is a "grave development" in the investigation of possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

The display showed Short talk to a music publisher who wanted to find a Russian government lawyer who would apparently take Clinton's dirt as 'part of Russian government support. "From what I've seen so far from meetings with Mr. Wray and from looking at his record, he appears to possess these qualifications". But Donald Trump said Wednesday that, while he didn't know about the meeting until it was reported in the press, he didn't fault his son for taking it. He also said that he didn't fault his son for attending.

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.

The younger Trump is a key player in the controversy over Russia's meddling in the 2016 election.




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. "Which is a very interesting point".

The president's attorney, Jay Sekulow, said in an interview with NBC's "Today" that Trump Jr. did not violate any laws by accepting the meeting. Trump Jr. said the meeting "really went nowhere" and that he never told his father about it because there was "nothing to tell".

But those close to Manafort maintain he's done nothing wrong - in fact, they think Manafort's involvement in this whole thing is completely unlike that of Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner, who was also at the meeting.

Nevertheless, the revelation renewed accusations of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government - accusations the White House has strongly denied.
