US Lawmakers set to question Trump campaign chairman

The chairman noted that the committee is holding hearings next week on the Federal Agent Registration Act, which requires Americans to register to work as lobbyists of foreign governments.

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 past year between Trump's son and a Russian lawyer said to be offering "dirt" on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

While the committee has not confirmed that they have invited or plan to invite Trump testify, Sen.

Manafort, who resigned as Trump's campaign manager in August 2016 after about five months on the job, is under investigation by the FBI for business dealings and lobbying efforts associated with Ukrainian political campaigns.

News outlets reported late in June Manafort recently registered as a foreign agent with the U.S. Justice Department. But as has been mentioned before, those close to Manafort say he has been cooperative and will continue to be - he's just waiting on the committee to give him a date for the hearing.

On Sunday, Trump Jr. issued a statement, in which he said it had become clear during the meeting that Veselnitskaya had no meaningful information on the Democratic National Committee's links with Russia-connected individuals.

As reported in May, Special Counsel Bob Mueller is putting Manafort and former White House National Security Advisor Michael Flynn under a microscope as part of his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

He mentioned, however, that Moscow would seek justice and demand that worldwide norms regarding diplomatic property be observed. A dacha complex owned by the US Embassy at Serebyany Bor outside Moscow may be one of those premises.

Quentin Tarantino Planning Movie Inspired by Charles Manson
Now, with eight films behind him-the last was 2015's The Hateful Eight-the director has set his sights on his penultimate project. Charles Manson was a cult leader who ordered his followers to kill her and others in four locations between July-August 1969.

JK Rowling printed her unpublished manuscript on a party dress
But she was able to "publish" it in a sense in a most unlikely place: on the fabric of a dress that's now hanging in her wardrobe. The recipient of several awards told that her secret book is in fact a fairytale and most of it revolves around a party dress.

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

Although he's entangled in the larger web created by the Russian Federation probes, Manafort previously disclosed this meeting to congressional investigators before Trump Jr. leaked his emails - but he wasn't required to disclose the content of it.

"This raises serious questions about whether the Obama administration authorized her to remain in the country, and if so, why?"

"If he comes before our committee - and we'll subpoena him if necessary - then it would be appropriate for anybody to get into anything that went on at that meeting", Grassley said.

"My son Donald did a good job last night", President Trump wrote on Twitter.

"I think any witness who's been asked to testify in Congress should do that", Ryan said at a news conference.
