McConnell on Trump Jr. subpoena: 'I think this is just a blip'

Key Democrat Demands Mueller's Counterintelligence Findings

Webb added, "This is politics, this is going after Trump, which Burr wants to constantly do". I don't know if if you will, but he should.

The sudden infighting threatened to undermine support for the Senate's Russia investigation, which is the sole bipartisan probe in Congress into Russian interference in the 2016 election and has been widely praised as operating with little public drama. In fact, Burr's Committee hasn't found evidence of collusion, and the Senator has said so. Richard Burr of North Carolina, who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, faced political backlash from members of his own party over his decision to subpoena Trump Jr.

The subpoena highlights a delicate bind facing Burr, a third-term senator who is not expected to run for re-election when his term is up in 2022. Trump Jr. testified before the committee in December 2017 for more than nine hours.

"This is harassment of our family, harassment of the president", she said.

As part of its investigation, the Committee interviewed Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner, among many others.

Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Vice Chairman Mark Warner, D-Va., chose to subpoena Donald Trump Jr., prompting criticism from Republicans.

Mental Health Week a chance to 'get loud' about wellness
This week marks Mental Health Week and the Canadian Mental Health Association is inviting everybody to get loud for mental health. Now, his mother is taking action in order to help other families and teens suffering from depression and mental illness.

I should also note that Burr's Committee isn't overstepping normal bounds. "The last thing he needs is Washington, D.C". Richard Burr for his committee's subpoena of President Donald Trump's son, a move that suggests the Russian Federation investigation is not "case closed", as some in the GOP insist. "Primaries will not be kind to Republicans who stand silent as government power is. abused to harass the President's family". "And frankly for my son after being exonerated to now get a subpoena to go again and speak again. yeah, I'm pretty surprised". However, standing alone, I don't think it's reason enough to subpoena Trump Jr. "It's time to focus on ISSUES, not investigations", tweeted House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. "Has testified 20+ hours already & was cleared of any crimes by Mueller", Surabian continued. "It's time to move on & start focusing on issues that matter to Americans".

It seems to me that Burr serves two of his interests by issuing the subpoena: furthering his Committee's investigation and maintaining some level of bipartisanship on the Committee.

A source close to the president's son said he testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee for at least eight hours and in front of congressional committees for a total of 27 hours.

But the panel eventually lost its patience with Trump Jr., issuing the subpoena more than a week ago. Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary Committee in a separate interview in 2017 he was only "peripherally aware" of the proposal. 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.

News of the subpoena surfaced a day after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said that the case is closed on the Mueller probe.

Trump said other Republicans were upset that the GOP chairman, Sen.
