Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, who met with Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and a Russian lawyer in June of last year, will be sharing notes of the meeting with the Senate Intelligence Committee, according to a "person close to the investigation," Politico reports.

Manafort will be meeting with the committee in the next 48 hours in a closed session, per that report. His spokesman, Jason Maloni, told Axios they're feeling "upbeat" and "very positive" about the testimony.

Compare this: Manafort took notes, but Kushner said the meeting was "a waste of our time" and one he "did not recall at all" until it came up in recent media reports and Trump Jr. said the meeting produced "no meaningful information."
