Yesterday, it was revealed that the Senate Intelligence Committee, led by Republican Chairman Richard Burr, has subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr. to testify relating to solutions he gave to the Senate Judiciary Committee concerning the Trump-Russia scandal.
Though it’s presently unclear what the Senate committee desires to ask Trump Jr., early suspicions counsel the subpoena wasn’t issued so as to assist Donald Trump Jr. cowl his tracks. As a substitute, it’s extensively believed that Burr could also be attempting to cowl his personal tracks contemplating the Mueller report revealed that he tried to assist Trump keep away from the investigation altogether in early 2017.
In accordance with Trump Jr.’s response to the subpoena, there could also be some benefit to these suspicions, as he’s lashing out at Burr and supposedly sees it as nothing greater than a “PR stunt” from a “so-called” Republican which he’s poised to battle.
Per the Wall Avenue Journal, somebody near Trump advised that Junior has accused Burr of being “too cowardly to face as much as his boss [Sen.] Mark Warner and the remainder of the resistance Democrats on the committee.”
Nevertheless, what this supply near Trump has failed to understand is that the Republicans have the bulk on the Senate Intelligence Committee, so it’s not as if any resistance from the Democrats is overbearing.
No matter what the subpoena in the end yields, the sheer point out of its existence has already turned numerous heads and has escalated right into a fairly the conundrum, particularly contemplating Group Trump is concurrently telling everybody that solely the Democrats are taken with investigating Donald Trump’s scandals. That stated, I can perceive why Trump Jr. will battle the subpoena. The very last thing he or his father wants is that this “so-called” Republican turning towards them and destroying the narrative.
