Trump Jr., Manafort, Kushner to testify before lawmakers next week
From WTimes by Alex Swoyer
Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort will testify on Capitol Hill next week, increasing the speculation around President Trump’s inner circle and accusations of collusion with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential campaign.
The younger Mr. Trump and Mr. Manafort will appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee at 10 a.m. Wednesday for a public hearing, according to a committee press release issued Wednesday.
President Trump’s eldest son and his former campaign manager have recently come under scrutiny after it was revealed they held a private meeting last summer with a Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, who promised compromising information about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
