Senate Committee Subpoenas Former Trump Campaign Chair Paul Manafort

Both Manafort and Kushner have faced scrutiny about attending the Trump Tower meeting because it was described in emails to Donald Trump Jr.as part of a Russian government effort to aid Trump's presidential campaign.

Schiff said Kushner will be available to the committee for two hours, and said this would just be the first interview with him. "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.

"Therefore, [Monday] evening, a subpoena was issued to compel Mr. Manafort's participation in Wednesday's hearing", the statement said.

Kushner on Monday answered questions from staff on the Senate's intelligence panel, acknowledging four meetings with Russians during and after Trump's victorious White House bid and insisting he had "nothing to hide".

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team is examining Manafort's financial and real estate records in NY as well as his involvement in Ukrainian politics, the officials said.

The Intelligence committees are leading the Congressional investigations into the Russian attempts to influence the 2016 presidential election and the possible collusion by members of Trump's campaign. "Simpson's attorney has asserted that his client will invoke his Fifth Amendment rights in response to the subpoena", the statement said.

Ring-chasing is never completely off the table, but Rose would be doing so while earning the lowest salary of his career. With an already loaded roster of point guards, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense for Rose to join the Bulls.

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.

Manafort could be excused from the hearing by agreeing to the "production of documents and a transcribed interview", they said. Investigators are also probing whether Manafort engaged in money laundering, according to The Wall Street Journal. He reportedly turned over his notes about the June 9, 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya that had been arranged by Donald Trump, Jr. and music promoter Rob Goldstone.

Trump Jr. had earlier expressed his willingness to testify. He has also said that he "never knowingly spoken to Russian intelligence officers".
