President Donald Trump, his former campaign chairman and his personal attorney have agreed to testify before a grand jury investigating the 2016 presidential election, the White House said Thursday.
The House Intelligence Committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee are conducting a joint investigation into the Trump campaign’s connections to Russian intelligence agents.
The White House did not say when the witnesses would testify.
Manafort has agreed to cooperate with the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation, but he will not participate in its investigation, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters.
Manafort was charged last week with six counts of making false statements to the FBI.
The former Trump campaign chairman has pleaded not guilty.
The Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations has said it has not yet interviewed Manafort or his lawyer.
The charges relate to payments made to a Ukrainian political operative who has since been indicted on money laundering and tax evasion charges.
The FBI has also opened a criminal investigation into Manafort’s business dealings in Ukraine.
