Top Dem Senator On Trump Jr: He ‘Will Be Subpoenaed If He Refuses To Testify’

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) spoke with reporters on Thursday and told them that she is not concerned about Trump Jr. and Paul Manafort agreeing to testify before a Senate panel. This is because if they refuse to comply “they’ll be subpoenaed.”

Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, told reporters, “Am I concerned? No, I’m not concerned, because if they don’t they’ll be subpoenaed.”

If Trump Jr. and Manafort would be subpoenaed both Feinstein and Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) would need to agree on it.

Fortunately, both Feinstein and Grassley have both agreed to subpoena Trump Jr. and Manafort if they declined to voluntarily testify before the panel.

Feinstein’s comments come after the Judiciary committee announced a scheduled hearing next Wednesday. Both Manafort and Trump Jr. will be asked to testify.

“Chairman Grassley and Ranking Member Feinstein have agreed to issue subpoenas, if necessary … to secure their testimony,” the committee said in a statement Wednesday, announcing it had asked Trump Jr. and Manafort to preserve campaign-related documents for the panel.

The reason for the hearings is to get an insight on what happened during the June 2016 meeting between Trump Jr. and a Russian government lawyer.
