Senate Intel committee subpoenas Don Jr over Trump Tower testimony

According to a "source with direct knowledge" of the committee's inner workings, the subpoena was related to the previous testimony Trump Jr had provided to the committee in September 2017.

For now, Trump Jr. feels emboldened by this fight, people close to him say.

# p #3_6 # ad skipped = true #. Rand Paul (KY), who tweeted in response to the Axios report: "Apparently the Republican chair of the Senate Intel Committee didn't get the memo from the Majority Leader that this case was closed". Richard Burr (R-NC) had already subpoenaed Trump Jr. for further testimony when he publicly stated that it was time to move on from investigating the Trump campaign's contacts with Russian operatives.

Top Senate Republicans like Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham can declare the Russian Federation investigation is over but Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) may disagree.

"Don and Senate Intel agreed from the very beginning that he would appear once to testify before the committee and would remain for as long as it took to answer all of their questions".

It was the first known legal summons issued by Congress to a member of the president's family to force testimony in the ongoing investigation, and comes after Special Counsel Robert Mueller declined to accuse Trump's 2016 campaign of criminal conspiracy to collude with the Russians.

Warner said that the intelligence panel also wants to see the underlying evidence in Mueller's report, a request that House lawmakers have also made.

The House committee has issued a subpoena for documents from former White House counsel Don McGahn, who emerged as a central figure in Mueller's investigation into whether Trump obstructed justice. They should NOT be taking orders from unhinged resistance Dems. Lee Zeldin retweeted McCarthy and called the move "weak & ridiculous". Barr refused to testify before the Democratic-controlled committee last week after a dispute over the hearing's format.
