Washington—Facing a subpoena to appear at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday, Paul Manafort began producing documents today to the Judiciary Committee and committed to negotiating in good faith a date for a future interview before the committee. Following the agreement, the Committee has agreed to withdraw the subpoena compelling his presence at tomorrow’s hearing.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein issued the following statement:

“Faced with issuance of a subpoena, we are happy that Mr. Manafort has started producing documents to the Committee and we have agreed to continue negotiating over a transcribed interview. It’s important that he and other witnesses continue to work with this committee as it fulfills its oversight responsibility.

“Our investigation is still in its early stages, and we will continue to seek information from witnesses as necessary. As we’ve said before, we intend to get the answers that we need, one way or the other. Cooperation from witnesses is always the preferred route, but this agreement does not prejudice the committee’s right to compel his testimony in the future.”
