Senate Judiciary Chairman Wants Trump Jr. to Testify

Senate Judiciary Chairman Wants Trump Jr. to Testify

The move comes one day after Grassley announced that he will be calling former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort to testify before the committee.

While Grassley spoke with reporters Wednesday morning, the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for Federal Bureau of Investigation director nominee Christopher Wray was in session.

Veselnitskaya herself denied any connection to the Kremlin, said she did not request a meeting with Trump Jr. during the 2016 presidential campaign, and noted that she has no information damaging Clinton.

News outlets reported late in June Manafort recently registered as a foreign agent with the U.S. Justice Department. Feinstein's office confirmed that they plan to question him.

"Obviously it would be appropriate for anybody to get into anything that went on at that meeting, and he was at that meeting", Grassley told Iowa reporters.

You can view his full letter in the attached to the document. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss Manafort's private interactions with the committee.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a member of the committee, said it was "long overdue" that Manafort be called to testify.

The panel is investigating Russian meddling in the US election.

A lawyer for Donald Trump Jr. did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment on whether his client would agree to appear before the committee. The emails with music publicist Rob Goldstone show that Trump Jr. was told that the Russian government had information that could "incriminate" Clinton and her dealings with Russia.

Both Trump Jr. and Veselnitskaya have claimed that the Russian attorney did not provide any information about Clinton.

'And I think it's raised a lot of questions, ' Grassley added, as the Donald Trump Jr story has devoured the news cycle for the past six days. 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. The chairman said that he will subpoena the president's son if necessary.

Trump says the woman is a private attorney who has "roamed the hallways" of the U.S. Congress.

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.

According to NPR, Grassley asked Trump testify in an open session as early as next week.

Investigations into possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign have shadowed the White House for months.

"In retrospect I probably would have done things a little differently", Trump Jr. said. "There was zero coordination" between his campaign and Russian Federation", he told Reuters, adding: "It's the dumbest thing I've ever heard".
