Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he is planning to ask Donald Trump Jr.to testify before his 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.

US President Donald Trump has addressed the controversy over his eldest son's meeting with a Russian lawyer during last year's presidential campaign.

The statement came the say day that financial documents confirmed Manafort's firm received $1.2 million from his clients - payments that some Ukrainian officials believed were part of a larger scandal involving former President Viktor Yanukovych's pro-Russian political party and Manafort's firm.

Grassley's letter notes that Veselnitskaya's alleged role in efforts to undermine American sanctions as part of her lobbying against the Magnitsky Act was cited in a complaint that she was one of a number of Russian agents who failed to register as such under the Foreign Agent Registration Act.
