Senate Judiciary Committee leaders have reached a deal to issue a subpoena to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, CNN reported Wednesday.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., told CNN that both she and panel chairman Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, agree on several key items as part of their probe of Russian meddling.

And one is "a subpoena for Manafort," Feinstein told CNN.

Grassley told CNN there had been a deal on aspects of the probe, but that final details were being worked out; he declined to elaborate.

The former lobbyist has previously denied financial wrongdoing regarding his Ukraine-related payments, his bank accounts in offshore tax shelters and various real estate transactions.

His possible public appearance would be a first; in July, both he and Donald Trump Jr., cut a deal to avoid appearing at that public hearing, agreeing instead to turn over documents to the committee and appear in a closed-door interview with committee staff.

According to CNN, the committee also is considering bringing in Trump Jr. to a public hearing as well.
