Led Committee Subpoenas Trump Jr. Over Testimony

Led Committee Subpoenas Trump Jr. Over Testimony

Why it matters: It's the first congressional subpoena - that we know about - of one of President Trump's children.

The president's eldest son told the Senate Judiciary Committee in September, 2017 that he was only "peripherally aware" of the ultimately scrapped plans to construct the building in Russian Federation. The summons was a sign that the investigations of the Congress were not completed to an alleged interference of the United States presidential election in 2016 by Russian Federation, although special investigator Robert Mueller has already submitted the end of March, its final report, the Portal. In his testimony, Trump Jr. said that prior to the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, he only talked to Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort about the rendezvous, in which a Russian lawyer was prepared to offer dirt on Hillary Clinton.

The president's son testified that he was "peripherally aware" of the Trump Tower Moscow project plans, which did not end up materializing. "He did that. We're not sure why we're fighting with Republicans", a source close to Trump Jr. told Axios.

A Senate Intelligence Committee spokeswoman declined to discuss details of its long-running investigation into allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election.

"[Donald Trump Jr.] has already spent dozens of hours testifying in front of Congressional committees". But lawmakers want to go over the issue again in light of testimony from Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former personal attorney.

Under Chairman Richard Burr of North Carolina, the Senate Intelligence panel has been conducting the only bipartisan probe, and one that has lasted even longer than Mueller's.

Cohen reported to federal prison this week to start a three-year sentence for crimes including tax evasion and campaign finance violations related to hush-money payments made to protect his former boss.

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. Trump Jr.is being subpoenaed to speak about answers he gave to congressional investigators in the past about their Russian Federation investigation, people familiar with the issue told The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday.

A source familiar with the committee's deliberations said the subpoena went out "weeks ago" and all committee members were aware of it.

Burr was named in Mueller's report as having possibly shared information with the White House after a confidential Federal Bureau of Investigation briefing in 2017.
