Ex-Trump campaign manager Manafort pleads not guilty to fraud

It's unclear whether Lewandowski will answer any of those questions in his return visit.

The ranking Democrat on the committee, Rep. Adam Schiff of California, said after the meeting that Lewandowski argued about the relevance of the topics, telling reporters "witnesses don't get to pick and choose when it comes to very relevant testimony to our investigation, so we have requested a subpoena", according to CBS News. Lewandowski's reappearance is said to be voluntarily.

Corey Lewandowski led Trump's presidential campaign for almost a year.

While Lewandowski did answer some questions Thursday, Schiff said he refused to respond to inquiries about a Trump Tower meeting with Russians in June 2016 or the preparation of a misleading White House statement about what was discussed once that meeting became public.

Lewandowski met with the committee in January but refused to answer questions about events that took place after he left the campaign.

The expected appearance follows comments by Republicans who have said the committee might soon end its probe into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.

It wasn't clear whether Rep. Michael Conaway of Texas, the Republican leading the panel's investigation, would go along with a demand for subpoenas.

Republicans are seeking to wrap up interviews after hearing from a few more witnesses, but there's been no indication those interviewed will include major figures the Democrats want to call back for more questioning, including Donald Trump Jr. and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Rep. Adam Schiff, Calif., said he wants to determine whether Prince lied to the panel about a meeting a year ago in the Seychelles that evidence suggests was an effort to establish a back channel between the incoming Trump administration and the Kremlin. Lawmakers said they wanted to ask him about that time period because he had still been in close touch with Trump and White House officials.

The top Democrat on the House intelligence committee says he wants to question a Lebanese-American businessman who's cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

Schiff also acknowledged that interviewing Nader possibly rests on securing permission from the investigators in Mueller's probe - permission the panel has not yet requested.

Manafort also faces bank fraud charges in Virginia not directly related to his work in Ukraine.
