Senate Intelligence Committee Subpoenas Donald Trump Jr

Donald Trump Jr. takes a break during the Senate intelligence committee, in Washington, D.C., on December 13, 2017. It's time to move on. When Trump Jr. testified before the committee in 2017, it was agreed that he would only have to appear once as long as he stayed as long as necessary, which he did. Trump Jr.in the hearing said he was "peripherally aware" of the potential project.

Trump Jr. has said publicly that he had very limited knowledge of the Trump Tower meeting with Russians, but more recent testimony from Michael Cohen, the former personal lawyer for President Donald Trump, puts that contention into dispute. In February, he told the House oversight committee he'd informed Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump about the Moscow project a number of times.

"Weak & ridiculous for Senate to perpetuate the Russia Collusion Delusion by continuing to harass [Donald Trump Jr.]".

Committee sources would not confirm the subpoena or what they want to discuss with the president's eldest son, who now helps run the Trump Organization, the family's real estate empire, and helps his father re-election campaign.

The first is a tweet by Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy (CA), who wrote in response to the Axios story: "DonaldJTrumpJr has already spent dozens of hours testifying in front of Congressional committees".

In his report on Russian meddling in the US presidential election in 2016, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team of prosecutors reported that there was a "reasonable argument" that Trump Jr. violated campaign finance laws.

Donald Trump greets Muslims on Ramadan
It's common practice across many Muslim-majority nations for liquor stores and hotels to curb the sale of alcohol during Ramadan. During Ramadan, Muslims are encouraged to read the entire Quran as one of the ways of strengthening their faith in Allah.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) also lashed out at the Committee for being out of step with the McConnell "memo". "Let's work together to help POTUS move U.S. forward", Rep.

McGahn has refused to comply with a committee subpoena for documents, following an instruction from the White House that he not accede to the lawmakers' demands.

Citing a person close to Donald Jr., the Wall Street Journal said he had offered to answer questions in writing from the committee, and planned to fight the subpoena which demands that he testify in person.

The White House is asserting executive privilege as the House Judiciary Committee seeks the full contents of Robert Mueller's report, which was released with redactions on April 18.

It is unclear why the committee wants him to return to testify.
