Don Jr., Senate Intel Reach Deal

1148890_web1_AP19117840772734

Sekulow, Futerfas, and Lowell represent President Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Ivanka Trump, respectively.

Donald Trump Jr. has reached an eleventh-hour agreement to testify before the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee, most likely in June, Fox News has learned.

Like the president, Senator Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) has argued that compelling further testimony from Trump Jr.is an unnecessary act of political theater.

Now, after a sustained pressure campaign from allies of the president and the first family, Burr has agreed to limit the scope and topics of the interview, as well as the length of time the president's eldest son will be expected to appear.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has defended Burr, telling his colleagues during the private GOP luncheon that he trusted the intelligence committee chairman.

Kamala Harris vows to take executive action on gun control if elected
If she becomes president, however, she won't wait for Congress to take action. "No, that's not what I meant, I know it was interpreted that way", she said.

Lawmakers reportedly plan to press Trump Jr. on his previous claim that only Jared Kushner and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort were aware of Veselnitskaya's offer, based on new evidence included in the Mueller report that suggests he informed the campaign's entire senior staff. We've already won. But now it's being reported that a deal has been hashed out for the president's son to answer two-to-four hours worth of questions.

Graham also appeared on "Fox News Sunday" to declare Congress's attempts to continue probing questions about Trump's 2016 campaign, its communications with Russian Federation, and potential obstruction of justice by the president "worthless", and said Trump, Jr. should not respond to the subpoena. Democrats on the Intel Committee had issued a subpoena to him on Wednesday.

The subpoena comes three weeks after special counsel Robert Mueller cleared President Trump, his campaign, and his family of any supposed collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election. Michael Cohen is a worthless witness, and if I were Donald Trump Jr.'s lawyer I would tell him, 'You don't need to go back into this environment anymore, you've been there for hours and hours and hours.

The president on Tuesday said he believed that his son was being treated poorly. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has debunked this story.

"Now they want him to testify again, and I don't know why, I have no idea why, but it seems very unfair to me!" On Tuesday, McConnell told reporters that "none of us tell Chairman Burr how to run his committee". Yet, Burr wishes to keep the conspiracy theory wingnuts of the Left thirsty for more when he issued a subpoena for Donald Trump Jr.'s testimony.
