Ju­di­ciary con­sid­ers sub­poe­nas:


Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -


The Se­nate Ju­di­ciary Com­mit­tee is con­sid­er­ing is­su­ing sub­poe­nas to Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s former cam­paign chair­man and two FBI of­fi­cials close to fired di­rec­tor James Comey as part of the panel’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion into Rus­sian med­dling in the 2016 elec­tions.

It would be the sec­ond time the panel has sub­poe­naed Paul Manafort, Trump’s former cam­paign chair­man. Se­nate Ju­di­ciary Com­mit­tee Chair­man Chuck Grass­ley, R-Iowa, and Cal­i­for­nia Sen Dianne Fe­in­stein, the top Demo­crat on the panel, sub­poe­naed Manafort in July but re­scinded the sub­poena a day later when he agreed to turn over doc­u­ments and con­tinue ne­go­ti­at­ing about set­ting up an in­ter­view with the panel.

Grass­ley in­di­cated Thurs­day that ne­go­ti­a­tions over an in­ter­view have since stalled.

“All I can tell you is I’m not very sat­is­fied with the fact that his lawyers aren’t re­turn­ing our calls,” he said. (AP)
