Donald Trump Jr. Grilled By Senate Intel Panel For 2nd Time

Donald Trump, Jr, the president’s eldest son, returned to Capitol Hill on Wednesday morning for a second time before the Senate Intelligence Committee, ABC News reports.

Wednesday’s hearing will mark the second time Trump Jr. sat before the Senate Intelligence Committee and the fourth time lawmakers have summoned him to the Hill since his father took office.

In the wake of special counsel Robert Mueller’s now-closed investigation, several congressional panels are marching forward with their own probes into Russian meddling during the 2016 campaign.

While the nature of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s request for Trump Jr.’s testimony remains unknown, the decision by its Republican chairman, Sen. Richard Burr, to subpoena the president’s son was met with sharp criticism from conservatives in the upper chamber.

Last month, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., went so far as to suggest that Trump Jr. ought to ignore the subpoena.

“If I were his lawyer, I wouldn’t put him back into this circus. The freak show in the House — I’m not going to let it come to the Senate,” Graham told ABC News in May. “We gave Mueller two years and [35] million dollars — it’s over for me.”

Responding to reports of the subpoena last month, President Donald Trump said he was “surprised” by the move.
