“The Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr. to answer questions about his previous testimony before Senate investigators in relation to the Russia investigation,” Axios reports.
“It’s the first congressional subpoena — that we know about — of one of President Trump’s children. The subpoena sets up a fight that’s unprecedented in the Trump era: A Republican committee chair pit against the Republican president’s eldest son.”
Key detail: “The fact that they’re subpoenaing Trump Jr. is a strong signal that he declined a request to appear before the committee again.”
The Washington Post reports Trump Jr. is said to be “exasperated” with the summons.
CNN: “One option Trump Jr. is considering in response to the subpoena is to invoke his Fifth Amendment rights, and another is just to not appear at all, according to one source.”Save to Favorites
