An effort to advance legislation collapsed in the Senate earlier this week after several Republicans said they wouldn't vote for the bill.
In a joint statement, Sens. Trump Jr. and Manafort are negotiating with the committee and have reached an agreement to instead meet with staffers and members of the committee instead of testifying under oath. Deputy Atty. Gen. Rod Rosenstein charged Mueller with investigating not only "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump" but also "any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation".
The meeting was called after the lawyer offered damaging information about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Meanwhile, the House Intelligence Committee says it wants to interview the president's son-in-law, Jared Kushner.
The House of Representatives Intelligence Committee said it would interview Kushner on Tuesday. He and Manafort have been scheduled to testify before the committee on Wednesday. Trump attorney Jay Sekulow tells The Associated Press Thursday that the lawyers "will consistently evaluate the issue of conflicts and raise them in the appropriate venue".
But US officials with regular access to Russian intelligence reports say Kislyak - whose tenure as ambassador to the United States ended recently - has a reputation for accurately relaying details about his interactions with officials in Washington.
A new INTELLIGENCE LEAK from the Amazon Washington Post, this time against A.G. Jeff Sessions.These illegal leaks, like Comey's, must stop!
The Washington Post is reporting that Russia's ambassador to the USA told his supervisors in Moscow that he discussed campaign-related matters with Attorney General Jeff Sessions past year during the presidential election season, contrary to what Sessions has said.
Sessions' meetings with Ambassador Sergey Kislyak were the cause of his infamous recusal from the investigations into Russian election meddling and alleged campaign collusion.
The newspaper notes, "One adviser said the president has simply expressed a curiosity in understanding the reach of his pardoning authority, as well as the limits of Mueller's investigation".
This comes as Mueller's probe into Russia's election meddling appears likely to include some of the Trump family's business ties.
Trump's highlighting his power as president to issue pardons comes on the heels of his legal team's asserting that the question of pardons related to the Russian Federation investigation is "not on the table".
That's according to three people with knowledge of the matter. The newspaper quoted current and former U.S. officials who cited intelligence intercepts of Mr Kislyak's version of the encounter to his superiors.
U.S. investigators examining money laundering accusations against President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort (pic) hope to push him to cooperate with their probe into possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.
Special counsel Robert Mueller sent a document preservation request to the White House, saying the June 2016 meeting that Donald Trump Jr. had at Trump Tower in NY is relevant to his investigation, the source said on Friday. The next day, Bloomberg reported Mueller was doing just that.
Manafort previously worked as a consultant to a pro-Russia political party in Ukraine and helped support Yanukovich.
The Justice Department didn't immediately return HuffPost's request for comment.
