Senate Judiciary Panel Rescinds Subpoena for Manafort

The Senate Judiciary Committee rescinded a subpoena it issued early Tuesday for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort to appear at a public hearing on Wednesday. Lawyers for Manafort and the committee agreed to continue negotiations to have Manafort appear before the committee in private. “Faced with issuance of a subpoena, we are happy that Mr. Manafort has started producing documents to the committee and we have agreed to continue negotiating over a transcribed interview,” Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the committee, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member, said in a statement. The senators said earlier that the subpoena would be revoked if “he would be willing to agree to production of documents and a transcribed interview.” Manafort met Tuesday with Senate Intelligence Committee staffers, a spokesman said.
