Chuck Grassley Wants Paul Manafort to Testify on Russia Next Week

14 July 2017

"I think it's been lackadaisical enforcement, and he would be an example of that lackadaisical enforcement".

The scope of congressional investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential contest came into sharper focus on Wednesday, July 12, as lawmakers said they meant to question the former chairman of the Trump campaign and to determine whether Russian social media "trolls" were connected to Trump's election efforts.

News outlets reported late in June Manafort recently registered as a foreign agent with the U.S. Justice Department.

His panel is investigating Russian meddling in the US election.

Trump Jr. told Fox News' Sean Hannity Tuesday night that he would be willing to testify under oath about the meeting, which he said yielded no useful information and instead focused on adoptions.

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.

The parole expired on January 7, 2016, and a request for an extension was denied on January 4, 2016.

Grassley is now asking how it was possible for Veselnitskaya to enter the United States for the meeting without a visa.

"It was in the previous administration [and] if there had been enforcement of the immigration laws, she wouldn't have been in the country", said Grassley.

CNN reported earlier on Thursday that Grassley planned to issue the hearing invitation and would issue a subpoena if necessary.

"There's probably more questions about this that these e-mails will raise and we look forward to having a chance to speak with Mr. Trump Jr. about this", said Republican Representative Chris Stewart, who serves on the committee.
