US House Speaker Ryan - Trump's son should testify in Congress

The senator from the USA state of Iowa added that if necessary, he will subpoena Manafort.

Manafort would also be asked about his participation in a Trump Tower meeting last June with President Donald Trump's eldest son and son-in-law, where the objective was to hear potentially damaging information about Hillary Clinton from a Russian lawyer. The Russian lawyer has claimed that the 30-minute meeting focused on the Magnitsky Act and the issue of Russian adoptions by USA citizens.

Trump Jr. said Monday, after the meeting was reported but before releasing the emails, that he is "Happy to work with" another Senate committee "to pass on what I know".

In a different part of the article, The New York Times states that three people claimed email of Robert Glodstone, a music publicist representing Russian pop star Emin Agalarov, indicated the Russian government as the source of the information offered to Donald Trump Jr.

Manafort said the meeting in a package of information he provided to the Senate and House intelligence committees, who have been investigating potential coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, as is Robert Mueller, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director appointed by the Justice Department as the special counsel. He had been accused of previously accepting millions of dollars in off-the-books payments from deposed Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych's Party of Regions while working as an adviser to the former head of state.

The panel has not yet asked Manafort to appear, but he has said that he wanted to testify before Congress on his Russian ties in a classified session.

Grassley said there will be a hearing within days on the lax enforcement.

He tweeted on July 10, "Obviously I'm the first person on a campaign to ever take a meeting to hear info about an opponent... went nowhere but had to listen".

President Trump continued to downplay the issue, saying that "nothing happened" as a result of the meeting. He was told the Russian government had information that could "incriminate" Clinton and her dealings with Russia.

President Donald Trump announced his nominee for Federal Bureau of Investigation director in a post on Twitter June 7.

The committee is writing to Trump Jr.

Now the question is why did he attend Trump Jr.'s meeting at all?

Still Trump remains defiant.
