Cancelled interviews led to Trump Jr. subpoena

Committee Chairman Sen. Richard Burr arrives for a meeting of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence

As calls from Senate Democrats mounted for contempt proceedings to be initiated, Donald Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, reached an agreement with the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday to comply with a congressional subpoena and provide additional testimony regarding key events in the Russian Federation investigation, according to several media reports.

Under the agreement, according to the Times, Trump Jr. will speak to the committee for two-four hours in mid-June.

The source disputed news reports suggesting the questioning would be limited to five or six topics pertaining to Trump Jr.'s communications with Russian officials.

Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee Richard Burr walks to a closed-door hearing where Michael Cohen, former attorney and fixer for President Donald Trump, will be testifying at the Hart Senate Office Building before testifying to the Senate Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill February 26, 2019 in Washington, DC.

"When he originally agreed to testify in front of the Senate Intel Committee in 2017, there was an agreement between Don and the Committee that he would only have to come in and testify a single time as long as he was willing to stay for as long as they'd like, which Don did", the source said. 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.

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

Trump said on Tuesday said he believed that his son was being treated poorly.

The latter has shed 5.5 percent of its value so far this month and looks set to record its sharpest drop in May since 2000. Other analysts point to a smaller impact, though, particularly for the United States, the world's largest economy.

But "Michael Cohen is a worthless witness", Graham argued.

But some Senate Democrats signaled to Newsweek Tuesday, prior to a deal reportedly being struck, that the committee should soon move forward with contempt proceedings, much like the House Judiciary Committee did last week with Attorney General William Barr.

A Senate Intelligence Committee spokesperson declined to comment.

The deal comes after the panel subpoenaed the president's eldest son to discuss answers Trump Jr. gave the panel's staff in a 2017 interview.

"If I were Donald Trump Jr.'s lawyer, I would tell him, you don't need to go back into this environment anymore", Graham told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday.

In the Republican-controlled Senate, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has declared "case closed" on special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

"It's really a tough situation because my son spent, I guess, over 20 hours testifying about something that Mueller said was 100 percent OK and now they want him to testify again", Trump told reporters at the White House before traveling to Louisiana.
