Senate subpoenas Donald Trump Jr. over earlier testimony, sources say

Alabama lawmakers postpone vote on abortion ban bill

President Trump says he was "very surprised" at the move.

Meanwhile, two congressional sources told Reuters that the president's son is unlikely to comply with the subpoena. "That is our view, that the case is closed and it is time to move on, and I believe that when the Senate Intelligence Committee finally does report, which I think will not be too far down the road from here, they will reach the very same conclusion".

Well, I think the good news is that Chairman Burr has already indicated that the committee will find no collusion, because that will be consistent with the Mueller investigation.

Top Republicans criticized the committee's decision to subpoena Trump Jr.

Mueller's report, released last month, says Cohen recalled being in Trump's office "when Trump Jr. told his father that a meeting to obtain adverse information about Clinton was going forward".

It came one day after Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declared "case closed" for the Russian Federation investigation.

Iran pulls out of 'parts of nuclear deal'
A spokesman for Iran's Supreme National Security Council, Keivan Khosravi, dismissed Bolton's comments as "psychological warfare". Iran has denied ever seeking nuclear weapons, insisting its atomic program is for entirely peaceful purposes.

The Democratic senator also accused Trump Jr. of intentionally lying during his testimony, despite being warned that providing "materially false, fictitious or fraudulent statements" would be a crime. "I was very surprised", the president said of Trump Jr., who runs the Trump Organization.

Cornyn, a member of the intelligence panel, said he was going to talk to Burr and other committee members about "what we need to do to wrap up" the probe. "It's time to focus on ISSUES, not investigations", tweeted House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Steve Daines (R-MT), throwing gas on the fire by ripping the subpoena.

Warner said that the intelligence panel also wants to see the underlying evidence in Mueller's report, a request that House lawmakers have also made.

Sources told CNN that Trump Jr. has considered declaring his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination or avoid appearing before the committee at all. But Burr, who is retiring rather than face re-election in 2020, obviously chose to play ball with staff investigators and Democrats eager to delve further into any potential contradictions in Trump Jr.'s reams of previous testimony.

But even that was not enough to stop the onslaught, as every single Fox News primetime show on Thursday night had major segments on this story-and most of the hosts criticized either Burr, McConnell, or both for this Trump, Jr., subpoena. But former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, who pleaded guilty to lying to Congress, and who reported to a federal prison in NY earlier this week to begin serving a three-year sentence for tax and bank fraud, stated he briefed Trump family members on the Moscow tower project that never materialized "approximately 10" times.
