Trump Jr. to speak with Senate panel Wednesday

Donald Trump Jr

Trump Jr.'s testimony comes as the intelligence panel continues its two-year investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Trump Jr is a fierce defender of his father, and like the president is an adept Twitter user.

Trump Jr. spent about three hours with the Senate Intelligence Committee Wednesday as part of its ongoing probe into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. He told congressional panels previously that he never informed his father about the audience with the Russian lawyer, but that account was challenged in Mueller's report.

Trump Jr. dismissed that he was extensively briefed by Cohen about the Trump Tower Moscow project, saying that Cohen rarely executed a deal so he had little reason to pay attention to anything he may have been pitching, according to the source.

Donald Trump Jr. said Wednesday he has "nothing to correct" as he returned to testify behind closed doors before the Senate Intelligence Committee, following a subpoena from the committee's Republican chairman, North Carolina Sen.

The Trump team had initially tried to cover up the meeting, providing conflicting stories about the objective of the gathering and what happened.

In May the president said he was "very surprised" to learn that the intelligence panel, known for its bipartisanship, had subpoenaed his son to testify again. Some Republicans are becoming restless with the topic, and Burr received considerable blowback from colleagues over the subpoena. To date, the investigation has been run by committee staffers, primarily.

At the very least, it gives society a sample of just how much plastic waste is ending up in the oceans. Approximately one-third of all plastic used is for single-use or "short-lived" products and packaging.

The president said in May he believed his son was being treated poorly.

Neither Burr nor the top Democrat on the panel, Virginia Sen.

The intelligence committee was likely to focus on a Moscow Trump Tower project and a meeting with a Russian lawyer who claimed to have information helpful for his father's 2016 campaign. He first testified before the panel in 2017, but the committee has called back several witnesses back to Capitol Hill for follow-up questions, including the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner and his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen, as it seeks to wrap up its long-running investigation into Russian meddling.

Among other things, queries could address Trump Jr.'s knowledge of negotiations for a Trump Tower in Moscow before the 2016 election.

"The Senate committee, which is chaired by Republican Senator Richard Burr, is conducting a bipartisan investigation into Russian interference in United States politics, including the 2016 USA presidential election".

Neither Burr nor the committee's vice chairman, Senator Mark Warner, Democrat of Virginia, would comment on the substance of Wednesday's interview.
