Following Subpoena, Trump Jr Will Privately Testify Before Senate Intel Wednesday

Following Subpoena, Trump Jr Will Privately Testify Before Senate Intel Wednesday”

Donald Trump Jr.is set to testify before the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday, according to a source familiar with the matter.

Trump Jr. struck a deal with the Senate Intelligence Committee last month, after months of wrangling and under subpoena, to appear for up to four hours and answer questions on six broad topics, including his own interactions with Russians during the 2016 campaign and what he told his father about them. Another will be a June, 2016, Trump Tower meeting when Mr. Trump Jr. and election-campaign advisers Jared Kushner, the President's son-in-law, and Paul Manafort met with a Russian lawyer whom they believed had damaging information on Hillary Clinton, Mr. Trump's Democratic presidential election opponent.

The appearance by the president's son follows a subpoena by the GOP chairman of the committee, North Carolina Sen.

The Senate Intelligence Committee, chaired by Republican Richard Burr, is the only congressional panel doing a genuinely bipartisan investigation of Russian interference in U.S. politics and the 2016 presidential election, in particular. Eventually Trump Jr. agreed to appear for the interview under the aforementioned terms.

This time, the panel, which is known for its bipartisanship, wants to revisit some of Trump Jr's earlier statements, including about a proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow, according to USA media. But he told fellow senators that Trump Jr. had backed out of an interview twice, forcing the committee to act.

The Senate Intelligence Committee, chaired by Republican Richard Burr, is the only congressional panel doing a genuinely bipartisan investigation of Russian interference in USA politics and the 2016 US presidential election, in particular.

Among other things, queries could address Trump Jr.'s knowledge of negotiations for a Trump Tower in Moscow before the 2016 election. Senators want to discuss answers Trump Jr. gave the panel's staff in a 2017 interview, as well as answers he gave to the Senate Judiciary Committee in a separate interview behind closed doors that year. The subpoena was criticized by some of the president's most vocal defenders within his Republican Party.
