Senate panel subpoenas Donald Trump Jr.
The Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr. in relation to his previous testimony to Senate investigators, the first known congressional subpoena to one of President Trump’s children.
Axios first reported the subpoena and a source confirmed it to The Hill.
The president’s eldest son testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee in September 2017 that he was “peripherally aware” of plans to expand his father’s businesses into Russia.
However, the president’s former personal attorney Michael Cohenclaimed in his February testimony to the House Oversight and Reform Committee that Trump Jr. was far more involved in the project and said that he briefed both Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump on the project about 10 times.
A source close to Trump, Jr., criticized Democrats for issuing the subpoena, nothing that he had already appeared voluntarily before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
