Trump Jr. reaches deal to testify with Senate Intelligence
By Jonathan Easley - 05/14/19 05:13 PM EDT

Donald Trump Jr. has struck a last-minute deal to comply with a subpoena from the Senate Intelligence Committee.

The two sides have been at odds over the length and scope of the interview, raising questions about whether Trump Jr. would defy the subpoena and be held in contempt of Congress.

According to the terms of the deal, Trump Jr. will sit for an interview sometime in mid-June for between two and four hours, with the scope limited to five or six topics pertaining to his communications with Russian officials.

This will be the last time Trump Jr. has to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, according to the terms of the deal.

I thought Lindsey Graham instructed him to plead the 5th.

I thought Lindsey Graham instructed him to plead the 5th.

I think he told him to ignore the subpoena.

This is ridiculous and so disheartening that this so-called 'investigation' continues.

Just gives wood for the Democratic fire.  He did tell him to plead 5th.  Why doesn't he shut his big mouth?  Trumps son has lawyers to advise him I am sure.

Absolutely, right along with "I have no recollection of that"
