A spokesman for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Jason Maloni, spent about two-and-a-half hours testifying Friday before a federal grand jury probing potential collusion between the campaign and Russia.
Maloni arrived at the courthouse just before 9 a.m. and disappeared behind the frosted glass doors of the grand jury suite on the third floor of the federal courthouse near the U.S. Capitol.
When he emerged just before noon, the Manafort spokesman spoke briefly with assembled reporters and photographers, but declined to go into detail about what he was asked. “I was ordered to appear before the grand jury,” said Maloni, with the communications firm Jade Rock. “I answered questions and I’ve been dismissed.”
