Kevin McCarthy: Donald Trump Jr. testimony wouldn't change Mueller report outcome

Kevin McCarthy: Donald Trump Jr. testimony wouldn't change Mueller report outcome”

According to a new Politico report, aides on both sides of the aisle think a response to Trump Jr.'s defiance of the subpoena may end up before the whole Senate if he fails to comply.

President Donald Trump's son Don Jr. was subpoenaed by the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee to answer questions about the discrepancies in his previous testimony and Robert Mueller's report.

Trump Jr. has always been of interest to the intelligence committee because of a meeting he had at Trump Tower in 2016 with a Russian lawyer. The senator also said he was not pleased about criticism he has received from Republicans for subpoenaing Trump Jr.

Senators on the committee want to go over answers Trump Jr. gave the panel's staff in a 2017 interview and ask further questions.

Burr and Warner reportedly believe they need to avoid partisanship that has affected the House Intelligence Committee and to a degree special counsel Robert Mueller's probe in order for their Russian Federation investigation to have the greatest impact. Cornyn's Texas colleague, Republican Sen.

Burr apparently said that Trump Jr. had plenty of chances to sit for interviews with the senators voluntarily and quietly. Ted Cruz, said there was "no need" for the subpoena. Others like GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy reminded Burr, Trump Jr. has already spent "dozens of hours testifying in front of Congressional committees". "Now, the issues here is that we're learning some new information that Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) of the Senate Intelligence Committee has told some of his members and colleagues that they initially began these conversations with Donald Trump Jr.'s team back in December".

That Trump Jr. backed out of the interviews was first reported by CNN.

Burr's committee had renewed interest in talking to Trump Jr. after Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, told a House committee in February that he had briefed Trump Jr. approximately 10 times about a plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow before the presidential election.
