  • Report: Marc Kasowitz, Trump's Lawyer, Threatens Stranger in Emails

Sen. Chuck Grassley said Wednesday he may subpoena the one-time chairman of Donald Trump's campaign committee to tell the Senate Judiciary Committee what he knows about a meeting past year between Trump's son and a Russian lawyer said to be offering "dirt" on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Manafort also has been called before the Senate Judiciary Committee, which Grassley chairs, to testify about enforcement of the Foreign Agent Registration Act.

Judiciary chairman Chuck Grassley said he plans to invite Manafort to speak before the committee -- and subpoena him if he does not cooperate -- first on failure to register as a foreign agent despite consulting for foreign entities including Ukrainian political figures.

"Mr. Manafort must answer questions about his deeply disturbing - and possibly criminal - conduct throughout the campaign, including recent revelations that he joined a meeting with President Trump's son and a Russian agent to seek "dirt" on Hilary Clinton", Blumenthal said in a written statement.

Djokovic complains of "hole" on Centre Court
Djokovic has been broken just twice this tournament and is winning no less than 42 percent of his return points. "I am, too. Their only previous match came during Wimbledon past year when Djokovic knocked out the Frenchman in straight sets.

Also that month, a Washington lobbying firm that Manafort co-managed registered with the Justice Department as a foreign agent.

The lawmakers spoke one day after Donald Trump Jr. posted on Twitter a series of emails that revealed his eagerness to hear negative material on Clinton from a Russian lawyer.

"It was in black and white that it was part of a Russian government effort to help Trump discredit Clinton", Sen.

According to the Former Russian prosecutor, Natalie Veselnitskaya, she was initially denied a U.S. Visa to enter the county but was later given immigration parole.

Oil rises slightly, but growing global supply a worry
But OPEC's Secretary-General, Mohammad Barkindo, said in Istanbul that it was premature to talk about that option. Another major drag on the oil market has been USA production, which has risen 4.3% this year.

Although he's entangled in the larger web created by the Russian Federation probes, Manafort previously disclosed this meeting to congressional investigators before Trump Jr. leaked his emails - but he wasn't required to disclose the content of it.

"It was in the previous administration [and] if there had been enforcement of the immigration laws, she wouldn't have been in the country", said Grassley.

Given he was just a few weeks into his role as chairman (and considering he has an apartment in Trump Tower, where the meeting was held) it's possible he felt an obligation to attend, especially after his boss's son requested as much. "Then obviously it'd be appropriate for anybody to get into anything that went on at that meeting, since he was at that meeting".

No, that friend request from Jayden Smith won't hack your Facebook
If you've got a Facebook profile, you may have come across a new, scary-sounding warning being shared by some of your friends. Smith is NOT a hacker, he does exist . "Hit that then click on the names of those in your list and it will send to them".
