US President Donald Trump’s eldest son, son-in-law and ex-campaign manager are to testify before the Senate on alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Donald Trump Jr, Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort will be questioned about their links to Russian officials. One key subject will be their meeting with a Russian lawyer last year.
Meanwhile, the president said he would not have named Jeff Sessions as attorney general if had he known he would recuse himself from the inquiry.
The president has also spoken about an until recently undisclosed conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin at a G20 dinner, saying it was mostly “pleasantries”.
