Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd stressed that Trump had moved to keep "the entirety of the subpoenaed materials" from the eyes of Congress.

The committee has been investigating Russian election interference and Trump's ties to Russia for the last two years. "That's our view, that the case is closed and it's time to move on, and I believe when the Senate Intelligence Committee finally does its repor, which I think will not be too far down the road from here, they will reach the very same conclusion". Richard Burr (R-N.C.) during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Capitol Hill, Sept. 5, 2018, in Washington.

"I would assume that they made a determination either that they weren't criminal or they weren't chargeable", Burr said.

Mr Burr has not spoken publicly about the latest subpoena, or whether Trump Jr might invoke his constitutional right to not testify.

Texas Senator John Cornyn said he can understand Donald Trump Jr.'s "frustration at being asked to come back after having cooperated for such a long period of time and seeing now that this Mueller report is completed".

"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. "I think we know pretty much everything we are going to learn, and I think we ought to wrap it up".

"Endless investigations_by either party_won't change the fact that there was NO collusion".

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Burr had the power to block the subpoena. "It's time to focus on ISSUES, not investigations", tweeted House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.

The Virginia Democrat said the intelligence panel also wants to see the underlying evidence in Mueller's report, a request that House lawmakers have also made. "He said he was only peripherally aware of the negotiations in Moscow for Trump Tower there when apparently he was briefed extensively", Blumenthal said.

It's the first known subpoena for a member of Trump's immediate family. 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.

Lara Trump, 2020 Trump campaign senior adviser and the president's daughter-in-law, said Thursday that trying to coerce Donald Trump Jr., to testify again before the Senate or putting him in jail "is not going to make Hillary Clinton the president of the United States".
