According to Reuters, Trump Jr. and Paul Manafort — President Trump’s then-campaign manager, who was also present at the meeting — will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding the meeting, officials announced Wednesday.
The announcement comes a day after Reuters reported that Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, would allow Trump Jr. and Manafort to testify before the committee. Bloomberg reported that if the two didn’t agree to testify, the Judiciary Committee would issue subpoenas.
