Donald Trump Jr. agrees to Senate committee interview

Kevin McCarthy: Donald Trump Jr. testimony wouldn't change Mueller report outcome

"Republicans said privately on Monday they were eager to avoid the clash and what would surely be an ugly floor vote if Trump Jr. ignores the Senate, and some hope the committee and Trump Jr. can work out a deal to avoid a floor vote on complying with the subpoena or even holding the president's son in contempt", wrote reporter Burgess Everett. The agreement heads off a major dispute over a subpoena the committee issued Trump Jr., after he reportedly twice bailed on plans to come in voluntary for additional question.

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff sent letters in March to four lawyers who were part of the President's joint defense agreement asking for documents and testimony related to the crafting of Cohen's 2017 statement to the committee and any discussions of presidential pardons. "They're requesting him back based upon something that Cohen has said, when he is in jail for lying to Congress", Mr. McCarthy said on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday. "And nothing being alleged here changes the outcome of the Mueller investigation, '" Graham, R-S.C., said.

Later on Tuesday, McConnell said, however, that it was the Senate Intelligence Committee chairman's prerogative on how to run his panel.

"It's really a tough situation because my son spent, I guess, over 20 hours testifying about something that Mueller said was 100 percent ok", he told reporters. "But it seems very unfair to me". This is the same assertion that President Trump's lawyers contend proscribes congress from subpoenaing his personal financial records, arguing that such action falls outside the scope of Congress' constitutionally mandated investigative powers.

Customers like Stephen Camp says he doesn't feel the price of generic drugs outright, but he does in his insurance payments. A coalition lead by CT , initially joined by 19 other states, filed the first suit in December 2016.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) was among the critics who condemned Graham's statements, saying the comments suggested "that Donald Trump Jr.is above the law". Senators on the committee want to go over answers Trump Jr. gave the panel's staff in a 2017 interview and ask further questions. "This compromise further proves that Don Jr. continues to be open and honest throughout this process", another former White House official told Breitbart News. These could include what Trump Jr. knows about a Trump Tower project in Moscow and about a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump Jr., Trump campaign adviser Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and a Russian lawyer, the source said.

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

A spokesperson for the committee told CBS News last week, "We do not discuss the details of witness engagements with the committee".
