Donald Trump Jr. is subpoenaed by Senate panel investigating Russian Federation contacts

Senate Republican Led Committee Subpoena Donald Trump Jr.

The subpoena is in relation to Russian Federation investigation matters, Axios reports.

He testified before the committee in 2017 about his participation in a June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower with Russians offering "dirt" on Hillary Clinton. She said senators "clearly need to re-interview some witnesses whose accounts (Cohen) contradicts". Trump's son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner has appeared before the panel at least twice. According to a transcript of Trump Jr.'s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, he told lawmakers that he never told his father about the Trump Tower meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. It's the first known subpoena of a member of President Donald Trump's immediate family, and a new sign that the Senate panel is continuing with its own Russian Federation investigation even after the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on the same subject.

Mulvaney said that as acting chief of staff, he might not have known about the subpoena because Trump Jr.is not a member of the administration, "but it would be highly unlikely that it would end up in the White House and I wouldn't know about it". The committee in recent years has been seen as one of the last remaining areas of bipartisanship in Congress, a reputation almost roiled by the revelation earlier this year that the committee's chairman, Sen.

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

McGahn has refused to comply with a committee subpoena for documents, following an instruction from the White House that he not accede to the lawmakers' demands. Richard Burr of North Carolina.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) quipped about the subpoena, saying, "Apparently the Republican chair of the Senate Intel Committee didn't get the memo from the Majority Leader that this case was closed. Senate Intell Committee effectively being run by minority".

Burr told The Post this week that he was not inclined to pursue Trump Jr. for perjury over any potential lies, as Mueller did not charge him. "I'm not interested in re-litigating any of Bob Mueller's conclusions".
