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.

"Don is a private citizen, who has already been cleared by Mueller after a two year investigation," the source said, referring to special counsel Robert Mueller.


"He has done 8-9 hours of testimony in front of Senate Intel already and 27 hours of testimony in front of various committees in total," the source said.


The source also took a shot at the panel's chairman, Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), by arguing that he should up to the panel's ranking member Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) and not insisted on additional testimony from Trump Jr.


"When he originally agreed to testify in front of the Senate Intel Committee in 2017, there was an agreement between Don and the Committee that he would only have to come in and testify a single time as long as he was willing to stay for as long as they’d like, which Don did," the source sad.


"Don continues to cooperate by producing documents and is willing to answer written questions, but no lawyer would ever agree to allow their client to participate in what is an obvious PR stunt from a so-called 'Republican' senator too cowardly to stand up to his boss Mark Warner and the rest of the resistance Democrats on the committee."

I think he should call Alex Jones and all his other conspiracy nut buddies as character witnesses.

As usual, it will amount to nothing.

As usual, the Democrats just cannot stand the idea of the slightest possibility that someone on the right may just possibly be innocent, no matter who they may be....jrSmiley_87_smiley_image.gif
