Trump ex-campaign manager Manafort not testifying Wednesday

Trump ex-campaign manager Manafort not testifying Wednesday”

The panel said Manafort had "committed to negotiating in good faith" a time when he would be interviewed by the committee. "He wanted to answer every question that we had", Republican Representative Mike Conaway 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".

As Kushner spoke with House intel committee members today, Manafort appeared before bipartisan staff of the Senate Intelligence Committee for a closed-door, transcribed interview.

Yesterday, presidential adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner released an 11-page statement seeking to exonerate himself, but that left unanswered a number orf key questions.

White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on Sunday said Donald Trump Jr.

The senators said last week they would issue subpoenas if the witnesses did not produce the required documents.

Donald Trump with Jared Kushner

A public hearing could subject the president's son to questioning from Republicans and Democrats about a meeting previous year with several Russians, the president's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, and Manafort.

All three men took part in a well-publicized meeting with a lawyer who promised damaging information on Hillary Clinton gathered by the Russian government. His company was reported to have commissioned a "dossier" on Trump that included unverified, salacious allegations about the president. Instead, the committee is amenable to Simpson testifying behind closed doors.

Simpson previously said he'd invoke his Fifth Amendment rights at a public hearing, according to the committee.

Tuesday's discussion comes just as the Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena for Manafort to appear at Wednesday's hearing.

Kushner, who is married to Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump, also attended the June 2016 meeting with the Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya.
