But at the eleventh hour before a second deadline, it was reported that Trump Jr. struck a deal to testify in June and avoid worsening the legal conflict.

Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), what the hell is going on?

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has defended Burr, telling his colleagues during the private GOP luncheon that he trusted the intelligence committee chairman.

The investigation is predicated on Michael D. Cohen's congressional testimony from early March where he stated that President Trump's personal lawyers were directly involved in editing the statement he had previously given to congress.

Burr told fellow senators that Trump Jr. had twice voluntarily agreed to an interview.

Lawmakers reportedly plan to press Trump Jr. on his previous claim that only Jared Kushner and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort were aware of Veselnitskaya's offer, based on new evidence included in the Mueller report that suggests he informed the campaign's entire senior staff.

The agreement comes after many Republicans, including President Trump himself, bashed the move by the committee's chairman, Sen. Now, after allies of Trump, Jr., and Republicans party-wide rejected Burr's original subpoena, with a fierce public backlash, Burr has cut a deal to limit the time and scope of the subpoena-which allies of Trump, Jr., say was always his intention.

The panel had subpoenaed Trump Jr.to appear before the committee, two congressional sources said last week.

Michael Cohen is a worthless witness, and if I were Donald Trump Jr.'s lawyer I would tell him, 'You don't need to go back into this environment anymore, you've been there for hours and hours and hours.

Cohen's original incriminating statement involved the timing of the Trump Organization's negotiations with Russian Federation for a Trump Tower in Moscow.

It's the first known subpoena of a member of the president's immediate family, and some Republicans went as far as to say they thought Trump Jr shouldn't comply.

The meeting initially was billed as one where Trump Jr. and members of the Trump campaign could obtain "dirt" on Hillary Clinton for their benefit in the 2016 election.

"It's really a tough situation because my son spent, I guess, over 20 hours testifying about something that Mueller said was 100% OK and now they want him to testify again", Trump told reporters at the White House before traveling to Louisiana.

Both the Moscow project and June 2016 meeting are top priorities for the committee's questioning, the source said.
