Trump 'very surprised' by Senate panel subpoena for Don Jr

Senate Minority Leader Bobby Singleton D-Greensboro objected strongly to the Senate stripping a rape and incest exception from a bill to ban abortion without a roll call vote

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., right, joined by Vice Chairman Mark Warner, D-Va., at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in 2017. That's according to two people familiar with the subpoena who discussed it on condition of anonymity.

Trump has alleged that the subpoena was issued "with the hope that it will turn up something that Democrats can use as a political tool against the President now and in the 2020 election".

It is unclear why the committee wants Trump's son to return to testify.

In resisting the congressional subpoenas, Trump Jr. joins several Trump administration officials who are refusing to cooperate with congressional subpoenas, including Attorney General William Barr and former White House lawyer Don McGahn.

Asked if Trump Jr. should fight the subpoena, the President wouldn't say: "Well, we'll see what happens".

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.

A team that had mortgaged a good chunk of its identity so that it could perform better in the moments where it had failed before. Embiid ultimately logged 35 minutes, finishing with 11 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, two steals, and a pair of blocks.

Two months before Mueller submitted his report, the Senate Intelligence Committee concluded that there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

"It's time to move on", McCarthy wrote.

"Endless investigations_by either party_won't change the fact that there was NO collusion". Cohen told a House committee in February that he had briefed Trump Jr. approximately 10 times about a plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow before the presidential election.

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

The Trump administration is also refusing to turn over copies of the president's personal and business tax documents requested by House Democrats. "The Mueller Report cleared @DonaldJTrumpJr and he's already spent 27 hours testifying before Congress", tweeted Burr's fellow North Carolina Republican senator, Thom Tillis.
