Former Trump Campaign Manager Manafort Subpoenaed


A Senate committee investigating the Russia hacking allegations has announced it has subpoenaed the former Trump aide, Paul Manafort.

Senate judiciary committee chairman Chuck Grassley and the top Democrat on the panel, Dianne Feinstein, issued a joint statement Tuesday saying that Manafort and the top members of the committee were “unable to reach an agreement for a voluntary transcribed interview with the Judiciary Committee.”

“(A) subpoena was issued to compel Mr. Manafort’s participation in Wednesday’s hearing,” the two senators said. “As with other witnesses, we may be willing to excuse him from Wednesday’s hearing if he would be willing to agree to production of documents and a transcribed interview, with the understanding that the interview would not constitute a waiver of his rights or prejudice the committee’s right to compel his testimony in the future.” Read more at CNN.
