U.S. Senate intelligence panel subpoenas Trump's son

Senate Republican Led Committee Subpoena Donald Trump Jr.

After giving dozens of hours of testimony in front of congressional committees related to the Russian Federation probe, which found no collusion, Donald Trump Jr. has been subpoenaed by the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee to answer more questions, this time reportedly about his hours of testimony.

Trump Jr has been a focus of several probes, including Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller's investigation, over his involvement in a June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer who allegedly had promised political dirt about then Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The reported congressional subpoena is the first to hit a member of the president's family.

A committee spokesperson said: "We do not discuss the details of witness engagements with the committee". Richard Burr (R-NC), for its decision to subpoena Donald Trump Jr.

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. Trump Jr.in the hearing said he was "peripherally aware" of the potential project. The Trump Jr. subpoena was a new sign that the Senate panel is continuing with its own Russian Federation investigation even after the release last month of a redacted version of the special counsel's 448-page report.

The surprise subpoena was issued by a Republican-led committee, opening a new source of strain between the Congress and a White House battling the legislature's pressure on multiple points.

This also opens up questions of whether McConnell knew that the Senate committee led by Sen.

Trump Jr. testified for more than 25 hours before the Senate Judiciary Committee in September of 2017 that he had little knowledge of plans for a Trump hotel in Moscow. The Senate Judiciary Committee released the transcript publicly. The Mueller report said he could not establish a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, but he did not reach a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice. Trump Jr. was asked. Rick Gates, Manafort's former deputy who was charged and pleaded guilty in the special counsel's investigation, told Mueller's team about the discussion.

The proposed tower in Moscow was the brainchild of Cohen and Felix Sater, a former Trump associate who chased property deals for the future president.
