Senate Republican Led Committee Subpoena Donald Trump Jr.

Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said Wednesday he did not know that President Donald Trump's oldest son, Donald Jr., had been subpoenaed by the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee, and he thinks it was "bad form" that there was no heads-up that the action was being taken.

The subpoena marks the first known instance of a Republican-led congressional committee compelling testimony from one of Trump's children, potentially setting up a battle between a fiercely protective father and his overseers in Congress.

"We do not discuss the details of witness engagements with the committee", a committee representative told NBC News.

Alan Futerfas, a lawyer for Trump Jr., declined to comment on the subpoena. The younger Trump told the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2017 he was only "peripherally aware" of the proposal. The source spoke about Trump Jr.'s prior testimony, arguing that he has consistently been cooperative. After Mueller's report was published, Democrats raised concerns that Kushner also may have lied to lawmakers about a business associate's collaboration with a Russian banker close to the Kremlin on a project to revamp U.S. -Russia relations. Richard Burr of North Carolina, at one point shared details about the FBI's Russian Federation investigation with the White House counsel's office. "Senate Intell Committee effectively being run by minority".

Trump Jr. had participated in June of 2016 in New York's Trump Tower, to a Meeting with a Russian lawyer, the duty had provided Material about trump's campaign rival Hillary Clinton.

Decoding Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor: The meaning behind the newborn's name
Now that we've had 24 hours to digest the news and the glorious photos of Archie and his parents , it's time to examine the name. In English, this means that any grandchild of the King or Queen immediately becomes a Prince or Princess.

While Mueller investigation has ended, the Senate intelligence committee is working on its report on 2016 election interference and will examine collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians. But lawmakers want to go over the issue again in light of testimony from Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former personal attorney.

Trump Jr. testified before the Senate intelligence committee for more than nine hours in December 2017, and before the Senate Judiciary Committee in September 2017.

Devin Nunes, ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, attributed the move to the fact that the Senate's rules and division of power requires more bipartisan cooperation than the House, where "whoever has the gavel has all the power".

The proposed tower in Moscow was the brainchild of Cohen and Felix Sater, a former Trump associate who chased property deals for the future president.
