Paul Manafort, Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner attended the same June 2016 meeting

Kushner's testimony is expected to be behind closed doors

CNN  — 

Donald Trump Jr. and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort have been scheduled to testify before the Senate judiciary committee on July 26, the panel announced Wednesday.

President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner is also expected to appear before the Senate intelligence committee on Monday. A source told CNN Kushner’s testimony would be behind closed doors.

The interest in Trump Jr. and Manafort builds on already intensive congressional investigations. In June 2016, the President’s eldest son agreed to meet with someone described as a “Russian government attorney” after receiving an email offering him “very high level and sensitive information” that would “incriminate” Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, according to emails Trump Jr. publicly released last week. Manafort and Kushner attended that June 16 meeting.
