Don Trump Jr. Subpoenaed To Testify Before Senate Intel Committee Again

Senate Republican Led Committee Subpoena Donald Trump Jr.

Rand Paul (R-KY) also ripped the Senate GOP move to subpoena Trump, Jr., and more Republicans are expected to pile on Burr's rogue move-which is in direct contravention of orders that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell gave on Tuesday that the case of the Russian Federation investigation is closed.

The detail, contained in special counsel Robert Mueller's report on the Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible coordination between the Trump team and Moscow, sparked sharp scrutiny of Burr's conduct, but the committee's Democrats largely refrained from launching their own criticisms and Burr later denied the allegation. The subpoena compelled Trump Jr.to testify before the committee, @jeremyherb reporting. "Throughout the investigation, both senators have said publicly that the committee would need to re-interview some witnesses", they said in a joint statement.

Yet in Mueller's report, the president's former lawyer Michael Cohen said he recalled being in Trump's office when Trump Jr. told him about a meeting to get "adverse information" on Clinton. When Trump Jr. testified before the committee in 2017, it was agreed that he would only have to appear once as long as he stayed as long as necessary, which he did.

In 2017 Trump Jr testified he was only "peripherally aware" of proposed plans for the Moscow project.

An unnamed source close to Trump Jr. said on Wednesday that he wasn't sure why Republicans were doing this. The panel's investigation, led by Burr, has been running for more than two years, and the committee has interviewed numerous same witnesses who spoke to special counsel Robert Mueller's team. Multiple Republicans had coalesced around Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's talking point of "case closed" in recent days, but now Democrats can argue that even members of the President's own party don't agree that all Russian Federation inquiries should end immediately. "Senate Intell Committee effectively being run by minority". The Mueller report said he could not establish a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, but he did not reach a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice.

Trump Jr.'s next retweetRepublican Sen. Trump Jr. was asked.

Mueller's report says that Cohen testified he had discussed the project on multiple occasions with Trump Jr.
