Don Jr Emerges From Senate Intel Testimony Annoyed With Cohen

President Donald Trump's eldest son will testify Wednesday behind closed doors to a Republican-led Senate committee investigating Russian Federation election meddling, a congressional source said.

The interview had been expected to focus on a Moscow Trump Tower project and a meeting with a Russian lawyer who claimed to have information helpful for Trump Sr.'s 2016 presidential campaign. "We were able to put some final clarity on that and I think the committee understands that".

"Rick Gates, who was the deputy campaign chairman, stated during interviews with the Office that in the days before June 9, 2016 Trump Jr. announced at a regular morning meeting of senior campaign staff and Trump family members that he had a lead on negative information about the Clinton Foundation". During that appearance, a congressional source said, Mr. Trump Jr. was asked about his involvement in a plan for a Moscow Trump Tower.

The Senate Intelligence Committee, chaired by Republican Richard Burr, is the only congressional panel doing a genuinely bipartisan investigation of Russian interference in U.S. politics and the 2016 presidential election, in particular. But President Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen, who is now serving a prison sentence for offenses including lying to Congress, said he spoke to Trump Jr. about the deal multiple times. The Trump son testified before the committee once before in 2017.

Cohen, who is now serving a prison sentence after pleading guilty in two federal cases, also told Congress that Trump Jr. and the Trump Organization's chief financial officer signed some reimbursement checks for hush-money payments made to a porn actress who said she had an affair with Trump.

Mueller's report described numerous incidents which appeared to be collusion, but the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief said there was no evidence to support charges of criminal conspiracy. But he told fellow senators that Trump Jr. had backed out of an interview twice, forcing the committee to act. Some Republicans are becoming restless with the topic, and Burr received considerable blowback from colleagues over the subpoena.

"If there needed to be clarification because Michael Cohen, who, let's not forget, is in prison for lying to these very investigative bodies, I'm happy to do that", he told reporters. Cornyn's Texas colleague, Republican Sen.

Democrats in the House and Senate continue to seek testimony and information as they press the president with multiple investigations, mostly related to Russian Federation meddling, obstruction and the 2106 election. Ted Cruz, said there was "no need" for the subpoena.
