President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager has offered to testify before Congress amid unsettling new reports about his ties to Russia, according to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the House Intelligence Committee chairman.
Paul Manafort, who stepped down as Trump’s campaign chair in August, worked for a close Kremlin ally to help advance Russia’s interests in the U.S., according to The Associated Press.
Nunes is leading the investigation of ties between members of the Trump campaign and the Russian government. Several other former Trump advisers, including former national security adviser Michael Flynn and longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone, have also come under scrutiny. Flynn resigned as national security adviser after admitting that he misled the White House about conversations he’d had with Russia before Trump’s inauguration.
The FBI has also been probing Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election.
