Manafort would certainly also be asked about his participation in a Trump Tower meeting last June with President Donald Trump's eldest son and son-in-law, where the objective was to hear potentially damaging information about Hillary Clinton from a Russian lawyer.

"After pleasantries were exchanged, the woman stated that she had information that individuals connected to Russian Federation were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Ms. Clinton", Trump Jr. said in that statement.

In emails posted by Donald Trump Jr. earlier this week, a music publicist said he arranged the meeting because a Russian lawyer wanted to pass on negative information about Democrat Clinton.

Futerfas told NBC that he spoke with the "friend", but it is not clear if that person is the same one who USA officials suspect could have ties to Russian intelligence.

Those emails, which were under the subject line "Russia - Clinton - private and confidential", showed that Veselnitskaya was identified as a "Russian government attorney", with Goldstone writing she would like to share some information about Clinton as "part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump".

The Republican president drew criticism last week from Democrats who accused him of not pressing Russian President Vladimir Putin hard enough at a meeting they held in Germany over Moscow's alleged interference in the 2016 campaign.

Conn has been on the run for over a month since fleeing prosecution for defrauding the government of over half a billion dollars. The FBI traced the truck to where it was abandoned in New Mexico near the border with Mexico, officials said.

Nevertheless, emails showing he accepted the meeting on that premise and said he would "love" to get dirt on Clinton stoked allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian attempts to influence the election in Donald Trump's favor.

On climate change, Trump acknowledged his differences with Macron - highlighted when Trump announced six weeks ago that he would withdraw the United States from of the Paris climate accord.

Grassley also said Wednesday that he will try to bring Connecticut's Paul Manafort, the president's former campaign manager, before the committee to question him regarding the enforcement of the Foreign Agent Registration Act.

'I think it would be a dereliction of duty not to give it an honest look, ' he said.

Russian Federation denies the allegations, and Mr Trump says there was no collusion. He has previously registered with Congress for the lobbying work, and he plans to raise this issue before Grassley's committee.

Ms Veselnitskaya acknowledged in an exclusive interview that she was accompanied by at least one other man, whom she would not identify, NBC said. By then, Bharara had already been axed by the president. Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, oversaw digital strategy for the campaign. Investigators are now scrutinizing whether Trump's team helped the Russian hackers deliver fake news stories about Clinton - a notable one claimed she ran a pedophile ring at a Washington pizzeria - to voters at critical times during the campaign. "From what I've seen so far from meetings with Mr. Wray and from looking at his record, he appears to possess these qualifications".
