Grassley to call former Trump campaign chairman before Senate committee

Share

Sen. Chuck Grassley said Wednesday he may subpoena the one-time chairman of Donald Trump's campaign committee to tell the Senate Judiciary Committee what he knows about a meeting previous year between Trump's son and a Russian lawyer said to be offering "dirt" on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The heads of the Senate judiciary committee are writing a letter to Donald Trump Jr.

Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) said he wants answers on why the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. was in the United States, since her entry visa had been denied.

Manafort ran Trump's campaign from March to August of 2016 before resigning amid news reports that he received illegal payments for lobbying work in the Ukraine, where he worked for a prime minister who had close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Trump critics claim this represents an attempt at collusion by Trump Jr.

Also Wednesday, Grassley flagged another potential violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act in a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly.

From the secretaries, Grassley requested "all visa records and associated documentation" for Veselnitskaya.

"If he [Manafort] comes before our committee, and we'll subpoena him if necessary", Grassley said. "From what I've seen so far from meetings with Mr. Wray and from looking at his record, he appears to possess these qualifications". 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.
