Canceled Interviews Led to Trump Jr. Subpoena


When Donald Trump Jr. backed out of previously scheduled interviews before the Senate Intelligence Committee twice in recent months, he forced the committee's hand, The New York Times reported. According to CNN, Trump Jr. became wary of reappearing after the committee's staff submitted to his legal team a list of 20 topics they wanted to discuss and after they indicated there would be no time or subject matter limits to the questioning. It's the first known subpoena of a member of the president's immediate family, and news of the move prompted strong words from Burr's Republican colleagues, including some who went as far as to say they thought Trump Jr. shouldn't comply. "They're requesting him back based upon something that Cohen has said, when he is in jail for lying to Congress", Mr. McCarthy said on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday.
