Sen. Burr Takes GOP Fire Over Trump Jr Subpoena

President Donald Trump speaks during an event on medical billing in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on Thursday

Sen. Dick Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said on Thursday that if Donald Trump Jr. didn't comply with a subpoena to testify before Congress that he should face prison time.

Two people familiar with the subpoena tell The Associated Press that lawmakers want to ask the younger Trump about his 2017 testimony regarding its probe into Russian election interference.

It's the first known subpoena of a member of President Trump's immediate family, and a new sign that the Senate panel is continuing with its own Russian Federation investigation even after the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on the same subject.

The panel's investigation, led by Burr, has been running for more than two years, and the committee has interviewed numerous same witnesses who spoke to special counsel Robert Mueller's team.

Joe Biden says Theresa May has expressed concern over US-UK relations
If the debate were to be held tomorrow, only Biden , Sanders, Buttigieg, Warren and Sen. Biden said the US under Trump "is about to squander alliances" built over generations.

Trump said that Trump Jr. already testified for 20 hours in front of Congress and that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators did not charge him. It's time to move on. Burr has said through a spokeswoman that he doesn't remember the conversation. Multiple Republicans had coalesced around Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's talking point of "case closed" in recent days, but now Democrats can argue that even members of the President's own party don't agree that all Russian Federation inquiries should end immediately. Why didn't Sen. Burr "get the memo?"

Mueller did not find evidence of conspiracy, but did not make a recommendation on the obstruction question. Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2017 he was only "peripherally aware" of the proposal.

"The Mueller report came out - that's the Bible - the Mueller report came out, and they said he did nothing wrong", he said.

"Don continues to cooperate by producing documents and is willing to answer written questions, but no lawyer would ever agree to have their client participate in what is an obvious PR stunt from a so-called Republican senator to cowardly stand up to his boss Mark Warner and the rest of the resistance Democrats on the committee", the source said. He said the committee reserves the right to call witnesses back if they see inconsistencies in testimony.
