Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been issued a subpoena to appear in public before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Wrote Senator Chuck Grassley and Senator Dianne Feinstein in a press release:
“While we were willing to accommodate Mr. Manafort’s request to cooperate with the committee’s investigation without appearing at Wednesday’s hearing, we were unable to reach an agreement for a voluntary transcribed interview with the Judiciary Committee…Yesterday evening, a subpoena was issued to compel Mr. Manafort’s participation in Wednesday’s hearing.”
