Mueller Seeks Grand Jury Testimony from PR Execs Who Worked With Manafort



    Manafort Secretly Worked for Russian Billionaire: Report

    An Associated Press investigation found that President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, secretly worked for a Russian billionaire to advance the interests of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The investigation cites a memo purportedly written by Manafort, who acknowledged to NBC News that he worked for the billionaire but said he did not represent Russian political interests.

    The Special Counsel leading the FBI investigation into Russian election interference and possible coordination with the Trump campaign has issued grand jury subpoenas requesting information from executives who worked with Donald Trump’s former campaign chair Paul Manafort.

    According to NBC News, this is the first public indication that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is beginning to compel witness testimony before the grand jury. That represents a significant milestone in the probe that’s looking into the conduct of President Donald Trump, his son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner, and others in the presidential orbit.

    It is also further indication that Manafort, Trump's onetime campaign chairman, could be in serious legal jeopardy.
