US Senate panel has rescinded a subpoena that would have forced Paul Manafort, a former campaign manager of President Donald Trump, to appear at a hearing on Wednesday as part of its probe into Russia's role in the 2016 presidential election. This was reported by Reuters.

Manafort is going to "continue discussions" with Senate investigators, a source familiar with the issue told Reuters. Another source said the subpoena was rescinded because the Senate Judiciary Committee was still negotiating with Manafort on document production and a later appearance.

As it was reported earlier Manafort is considered one of key figures in case of Trump's link with Russia. American investigators hope to encourage him to cooperate with regard to investigating a possible collusion between the Trump campaign members and Russia.
