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".
Boeing has admitted it knew about a missing feature on its 737 Max plans a year before the first of two fatal crashes. However, the statement asserts that the software issue did not adversely affect the airplane's safety or operation.
Sri Lanka's main worldwide airport is located in the area, but police said there was no disruption to airport traffic. The attacks were blamed on the local National Thowheeth Jama'ath (NTJ) whose leader was among the suicide bombers.
I assume that Trump has examined both the political and economic implications of increasing tariffs on Chinese goods. Chinese Vice Premier Liu He is expected to join a delegation in the United States this week.
They had chances as Liverpool exposed themselves at the back, but unlike the first leg, they were not clinical in front of goal. Jurgen Klopp's men needed to overturn a 3-0 first-leg defeat after Barcelona appeared to clinch the tie at the Nou Camp.
Trump has been known to cheat on the golf course, including, reportedly , during previous games with Woods. Speaking directly to his loved ones, Woods added: "You guys have meant so much to me in my life".
Rose would, in fact, finish 3rd, one behind Dahmen while Sergio Garcia , Paul Casey , Rickie Fowler and Jason Dufner tied for 4th. In any case, McIlroy went intruder twofold intruder on 9 and 10 and didn't make his first birdie until the thirteenth.
