Senate Judiciary May Skip Manafort Subpoena If Indicted

The Senate Judiciary Committee might not subpoena President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort if he is indicted, the panel's chairman said Wednesday.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, spoke with reporters on Capitol Hill and addressed his committee's Russia investigation.

"We have tried to talk to Manafort's lawyers for weeks, and we don't get a phone call returned," Grassley said. "That would mandate that we have a subpoena.

"I don't know whether it's worth issuing subpoenas when somebody's been indicted, if there's any value in that, if you get any outcome out of it."

Grassley said he saw news reports in recent days that suggested special counsel Robert Mueller will likely indict Manafort, who is being investigated for potential violations of IRS laws and other allegations.

The Hill posted a clip of Grassley's remarks.

The New York Times reported Monday that Manafort was told after his home was subjected to an FBI raid in July that he would likely be indicted.

CNN reported Manafort was under electronic surveillance last fall and earlier this year via a secret court order.
