Trump Jr. to Testify Before Panel, Manafort Subpoenaed in Ongoing Russian Interference Probe

UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — President Trump’s oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., has agreed to testify privately before the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is looking into allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

According to a committee spokesman, Trump Jr. will sit down for a transcribed interview, during which the panel will ask about his June 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer who reportedly promised damaging information about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The date of the interview has not been announced.

Meanwhile, Special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly subpoenaed a former attorney and spokesman for Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort amid the Justice Department’s ongoing probe of Russian election interference.

Both Manafort and Trump Jr. were called on by the Judiciary Committee to testify in July.

However, both made a deal with the committee to avoid an open hearing.
