GOPers Fume At Republican Colleagues Over Don Jr Subpoena

Senate Intelligence Committee Subpoenas Donald Trump Jr

News, Axios, CNN, The New York Times and other outlets reported that the subpoena seeks answers about prior testimony from Trump Jr.

An unnamed source close to Trump Jr. said on Wednesday that he wasn't sure why Republicans were doing this.

# p #3_6 # ad skipped = true #. "Mueller, whose investigation did not find a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, did not indict Trump Jr., despite speculation that he would", the outlet noted later, adding: "The fact that they're subpoenaing Trump Jr.is a strong signal that he declined a request to appear before the committee again".

While the House Intelligence Committee's probe broke down due to partisan bickering between committee leaders Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) and Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the Senate Intelligence Committee's investigation's bipartisan spirit has remained intact between Burr and ranking member, Sen. "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".

New Star Wars movie trilogy confirmed, Disney reveals release dates and more
Avatar 3 was originally scheduled to hit theaters on December 17, 2021 but has now been shifted to December 22, 2023. At almost 65 films, the list includes offerings from not only Disney and Fox but Marvel, Pixar, and Lucasfilm.

But he refused, agreeing only to respond to written questions.

Mueller's report, released last month, says Cohen recalled being in Trump's office "when Trump Jr. told his father that a meeting to obtain adverse information about Clinton was going forward". 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.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said earlier this week that it's "case closed" where special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is concerned, but Mulvaney said the Kentucky Republican was likely referring to Trump, not his son. They should NOT be taking orders from unhinged resistance Dems. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) wrote on Twitter.

In testimony before the House of Representatives Oversight Committee Trump's ex-attorney Cohen said that he briefed Trump family members "approximately 10 times" about the Moscow Trump Tower project and that Donald Junior and his sister Ivanka were among the family members he briefed, Reuters report says. Specifically, the committee wants to ask President Donald Trump's eldest son about his knowledge of a failed deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
