Former Trump campaign manager meets with Senate intel

Lewandowski is one of several Trump campaign officials that the Senate Intelligence Committee has interviewed in recent months as part of its probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential elections and allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials.

Lewandowski's interview was on the same day that the House Intelligence Committee attempted to depose senior executives of Fusion GPS, the firm behind a salacious dossier detailing allegations of President Trump's personal and business dealings in Russia, as part of their probe into allegations of Russian meddling. Burr and Warner in response asked Cohen to reappear on October 25.

"The Committee's public hearing with Michael Cohen has been postponed, and will be rescheduled at a later date", Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Vice-Chair Mark Warner (D-Va.) announced in a joint statement Friday.

"The intelligence panel, other congressional committees and special counsel Robert Mueller are investigating whether Russian Federation intervened to tilt the 2016 election in favor of Republican Trump against his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton".

Both committees began conducting wider counterintelligence investigations into Russian efforts to interfere in the presidential campaign earlier this year, after the USA intelligence community revealed the existence of a Kremlin-backed influence campaign created to disrupt and sway the 2016 election.

Senate intelligence committee investigators have spoken with several Russians who attended a June 2016 meeting with US President Donald Trump's son, the media reported.

The House Intelligence Committee responded with a subpoena, which Cohen said he would honor.

Meanwhile, the Senate judiciary committee, which met privately with Donald Trump Jr. last month, is trying to finalise plans to bring the President's son in for a public hearing.
