Trump son Donald Jr. subpoenaed by Senate panel

I was very surprised to see my son-my son is a good person, he works hard.

The reported subpoena prompted sharp rebukes from some of Trump's staunchest defenders within the party as Republicans sought to move on from a two-year investigation by U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, whose findings were released in part last month.

Congress has subpoenaed Trump and his business' accounting records from the firm Mazars USA, and Trump's personal legal team sued to stop the records from being turned over. Congressional sources on Thursday told Reuters Trump Jr.is unlikely to comply with the Senate Intelligence Committee Subpoena and is expected to cite constitutional right to avoid self-incrimination. "The Mueller Report cleared @DonaldJTrumpJr and he's already spent 27 hours testifying before Congress", tweeted Burr's fellow North Carolina Republican senator, Thom Tillis. "This smacks of politics and I think we have an important job to do to try to keep the intelligence committee out of politics", Cornyn said.

"The subpoena should be enforced", Blumenthal said.

Republicans are lashing out at Sen.

Though Trump seemed unhappy with the subpoena, he did not say whether his son would refuse to testify.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a member of the panel, said he thinks the criticism of Burr is "a fundamental misunderstanding of what the Senate intelligence committee is about", which is congressional oversight and not prosecution.

A source familiar with the committee's deliberations said the subpoena went out "weeks ago" and all committee members were aware of it.

"Frankly for my son, after being exonerated, to now get a subpoena to go again and speak again after close to 20 hours of telling everybody that would listen about a nothing meeting, yeah, I'm surprised", Trump told reporters at the White House. Trump Jr., the president said, had already testified for a "massive" amount of time. "There are a number of areas that need to be scrutinized by the Intelligence Committee. It's time to focus on issues, not investigations". Cohen told a House committee in February that he had briefed Trump Jr. approximately 10 times about a plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow before the presidential election. Even the senators defending Burr left outs in their statements and commentary, in case they feel the need to cut bait down the road, but most Republicans party-wide threw Burr to the wolves and stood with Trump and Trump, Jr., against the continuation of the Senate's part in the Russian Federation hoax.

But even that was not enough to stop the onslaught, as every single Fox News primetime show on Thursday night had major segments on this story-and most of the hosts criticized either Burr, McConnell, or both for this Trump, Jr., subpoena.
