Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenas Donald Trump Jr. in Russian Federation probe

The president's longtime personal lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen, testified in February that Trump Jr. was more involved in the project than he had claimed.

While there has been no official statement from the man himself, a source close to Trump Jr told Breitbart that he had no intention to testify after chairman Burr broke his end of the alleged agreement to question him only once.

As Law&Crime reported Wednesday, the subpoena was significant because it basically flew in the face of the strategy endorsed by Senate Majority Leader Sen.

The Senate Intelligence Committee has been looking into Russian election interference and Trump's ties to Russia for the last two years.

"We do not discuss the details of witness engagements with the committee", a committee representative told NBC News. 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. Two separate investigations, one by the House Intelligence Committee and another by the House oversight and judiciary committees, also concluded there is no evidence of collusion.

The 448-page Mueller report summed up the results of the special counsel's 22-month long investigation into allegations that Trump's team conspired with Moscow to influence the outcome of the 2016 election and that the U.S. president had obstructed justice.

Beijing also seeks to erode USA military advantages and backs those ambitions with significant resourcing, Schriver said. The meeting comes amid concerns over China's increased commercial interests in the Arctic.

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.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) also lashed out at the Committee for being out of step with the McConnell "memo".

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy wrote, "It's time to move on".

"I'm assuming that they believe they can - if you can believe this, they are going to take Cohen's word". Lee Zeldin retweeted McCarthy and called the move "weak & ridiculous".

McGahn has refused to comply with a committee subpoena for documents, following an instruction from the White House that he not accede to the lawmakers' demands.

The subpoena was blasted by a person close to Trump Jr as "an obvious PR stunt from a so-called "Republican" senator", CNBC reports says.
