Trump Jr. Unlikely to Comply With Senate Subpoena: Congressional Sources

He repeated that his son is a "good person" and testified for "hours and hours", and was ultimately "exonerated by Mueller". "He testified for hours and hours". I mean, we found out from the Mueller report that the Russians were deeply involved in it, there were something like 18 to 20 indictments of Russian companies and Russian individuals who were trying to get into the campaign and to mess with it.

41, has testified voluntarily in private once to the committee, and was peppered with questions about a June 9, 2016 meeting in Trump Tower in NY that he and other senior Trump campaign officials had with a Russian lawyer offering dirt on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Trump, who has blasted the investigations into him and Russian Federation, defended his son, who runs the Trump Organization - a private business that the Republican president still owns.

It's the first known subpoena of a member of Trump's immediate family and a new sign that the Senate panel is continuing with its own two-year-long investigation, even after the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report and Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's call from the Senate floor on Tuesday to move on. "He said he was only peripherally aware of the negotiations in Moscow for Trump Tower there when apparently he was briefed extensively", Blumenthal said. Also, other committee chairmen-Sens. Mark Warner (D-Va.), (L), talks with committee Chairman Sen.

The panel is calling on Donald Trump Jr to answer questions about his 2017 testimony to the panel as part of its probe into Russian election interference.

Trump Jr. told the Senate Intelligence Committee in his 2017 testimony that he had not told his father of the infamous meeting.

"[Donald Trump Jr.] has already spent dozens of hours testifying in front of congressional committees". Endless investigations - by either party - won't change the fact that there was NO collusion. "It's time to focus on ISSUES, not investigations", tweeted House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. "That is our view, that the case is closed and it is time to move on, and I believe that when the Senate Intelligence Committee finally does report, which I think will not be too far down the road from here, they will reach the very same conclusion". Rand Paul (R-Ky.) added on Twitter.

The House Financial Services and Intelligence Committees are also investigating the President's finances and have delivered subpoenas to Deutsche Bank, Capitol One and other major banks. Over nothing. Over a hoax.

In resisting the congressional subpoenas, Trump Jr. joins several Trump administration officials who are refusing to cooperate with congressional subpoenas, including Attorney General William Barr and former White House lawyer Don McGahn.
