Trump Jr. asked to testify before Senate Judiciary Committee

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein will request Donald Trump Jr. testify before the committee. 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.

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday urged President Donald Trump's eldest son to testify to a congressional committee about alleged links between Trump's team and Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential election campaign.

He began the effort before the 2016 election - and his previous lobbying work was not conducted on behalf of the Russian government, the representative said. In light of the revelation of the meeting between Trump Jr., and the Russian attorney, which Manafort reportedly participated in by phone, Grassley said the questioning could go beyond possible collusion with Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 election.
