Washington D.C. [USA], May 25 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, has submitted documents consisting of 205 pages to the House and Senate intelligence committees this week in relation to the ongoing investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Manafort submitted these documents in response to letters the congressional panels had sent to a handful of Trump campaign associates with potential ties to Moscow in recent weeks. Citing people familiar with the ongoing inquiries, the Washington Post reported that Manafort's documents consisted of calendar entries, speech drafts and campaign strategy memos that mention Russia or individuals from Russia. "This is just another sign that he is following through on his commitment to cooperate with investigators," a spokesman for Manafort, Jason Maloni said. The Senate letter to Manafort had asked him about his about contacts with Russian government and business figures. White House national security adviser, and Carter Page, who served briefly in the Trump campaign as a foreign policy adviser had also received similar letters. (ANI)
