Donald Trump Jr. Has Been Subpoenaed By Congress Over Russia

Published

Donald Trump Jr. was hoping that he was off the hook in the Russia investigation, but things have just got extremely difficult for him once again. Democrats have him in their sights, and they are not going to let him get away easily.

The Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr. to answer questions about his previous testimony before Senate investigators in relation to the Russia investigation, sources with direct knowledge told Axios. It’s the first congressional subpoena — that we know about — of one of President Trump’s children. The subpoena sets up a fight that’s unprecedented in the Trump era: A Republican committee chair pit against the Republican president’s eldest son. It’s also a sign that the Russia investigations in Congress aren’t over despite the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe and despite Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell saying it’s time to move on from the Russia probe.

A Senate Intelligence Committee spokesperson told Axios: “We do not discuss the details of witness engagements with the Committee. Throughout the investigation, the Committee has reserved the right to recall witnesses for additional testimony as needed, as every witness and witness counsel has been made aware.” “Don and Senate Intel agreed from the very beginning that he would appear once to testify before the committee and would remain for as long as it took to answer all of their questions. He did that. We’re not sure why we’re fighting with Republicans,” a source close to Trump Jr. told Axios.

The publication of the Mueller report was the biggest anti climax the world has ever seen. People on the left were distraught when conservatives and staunch Trump supporters continued to claim that there was “NO COLLUSION!” after the report was published, since its conclusions were so vague and unhelpful. However, it is all coming to a head now. With every passing day, Congressional Democrats find a whole new way to make the Trump administration (and in particular, the Trump family) become even more terrified about their immediate future. The fact that they now feel they have enough evidence on their side to subpoena Donald Trump Jr., one of the most senior figures in this entire scandal, ought to be enough to indicate to anyone with any common sense that the days of this administration are numbered. It is now only a matter of time before the whole, complete truth comes out and this illegitimate President ends up getting impeached and turfed out of office.
