Axios, a favorite site for leakers to drop interesting nuggets, reports it's the first congressional subpoena - that we know about - of one of President Trump's children.

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 also said he had already testified for a "massive amount of time".

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

"Remember what William Barr said: no collusion by Trump, any member of his campaign, or no American".

President Trump said he was surprised to see his son subpoenaed. He noted that Burr had changed his tone. As CNN's Jeremy Herb reported, the subpoena was issued two weeks ago, and sources say the president was aware of it. Trump said as much, adding that "my son is a very good person". "The last thing he needs is Washington, D.C".

The president said part of his surprise stemmed from seeing Republican Senator and intelligence committee chairman Richard Burr tell U.S. media that there was no evidence of collusion between Russian operatives and Mr Trump or his campaign to influence the 2016 election. "Primaries will not be kind to Republicans who stand silent as government power is. abused to harass the President's family". "Yeah, I'm pretty surprised". However, standing alone, I don't think it's reason enough to subpoena Trump Jr.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said it's time for lawmakers to move past the Russian Federation investigations. And while the issue of criminal conduct under the "collusion" rubric is closed (or should be), Burr's broader investigation into Russian interference isn't. It's time to move on.

In an interview with CBS in February, one the few times he's spoken at length about the investigation, Burr said the committee had not turned up evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. But if he allows Trump Jr.to stiff him on testifying, it won't.

"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 to stand up to his boss Mark Warner and the rest of the resistance Democrats on the committee", the source told Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs. 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.

"It takes a little while to read 400 pages, but apparently Senate intelligence staffers are not reading and given the right briefs", Webb added.

Republicans lashed out Thursday at fellow GOP Sen. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul tweeted that Burr "didn't get the memo" that the Mueller case was closed.
