Trump Jr., Manafort Reach Agreement to Avoid Public Hearing

Trump Jr., Manafort Reach Agreement to Avoid Public Hearing”

During his confirmation hearing, Sessions denied having any contact with Russian officials during the campaign.

"Unnamed U.S. officials told The Washington Post that Attorney General Jeff Sessions gave "'misleading" statements that are "contradicted by other evidence'" when testifying about his relationship with Russian Federation.

President Donald Trump has said Rice may have committed a crime when she asked intelligence analysts to disclose the name of a Trump associate mentioned in an intelligence report.

A former official said that the intelligence indicates that Sessions and Kislyak had "substantive" discussions on matters including Trump's positions on Russia-related issues and prospects for U.S. -Russia relations in a Trump administration.

The US Senate Judiciary Committee could subpoena Donald Trump Jr. and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort to testify with respect to Russian Federation, according to the spokesman Chuck Grassley.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions' conversations with a Russian ambassador past year on issues central to Donald Trump's presidential campaign were "treasonous and he should resign", former CIA officer Robert Baer said Friday.

The committee said in a statement late Friday that Trump Jr. and Manafort had agreed to negotiate with the panel over whether they will be interviewed by committee members and over documents it is seeking.

The president's griping did not deter Sessions, however, who insisted he would stay on as attorney general and not resign.

The letter said that the special counsel's office "is investigating the Russian government's efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, including any links or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of Donald Trump". "People should know what folks' paths and motivations and political motivations are", she said in a Fox News interview. As Special Counsel Robert Mueller probes into Russian Federation, could President Trump pardon his team, his children or himself?

A person who spoke with Corallo told Politico the resignation comes as the spokesman was unhappy with the team's strategy of attacking the credibility of special counsel Robert Mueller.

Also Friday, Reuters reported that Veselnitskaya represented Russia's top spy agency, the Federal Security Service, in a land dispute in Moscow.

He added the president's lawyers are cooperating with Mueller on behalf of Trump.

Other recent changes included the hiring of veteran Washington lawyer Ty Cobb to a White House job to handle responses to the Russian Federation probe.
