House Democrats probing allegations that Donald Trump’s presidential campaign colluded with Russian operatives plan to issue their first subpoena to Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.
Rep. Jackie Speier, a key member of the House Intelligence Committee, said on Tuesday night that Donald Trump Jr. would be served first by the panel as it reopens the investigation.
Democrats on the panel, headed by Chairman Adam Schiff, have long questioned the previous report written by GOP majority on the affair and believe that those who testified in private, including Trump Jr., were not forthcoming.
“There are a number of persons that testified before the committee that I feel were not telling the truth,” said Speier, addressing the Women’s National Democratic Club in Washington.
From Washington Examiner:
Trump critics and special counsel Robert Mueller have focused on a 2016 meeting in New York’s Trump Tower, the president’s campaign and business headquarters, between Donald Trump Jr. and others including a Russian linked lawyer.
In a Senate meeting, Trump said that the meeting was innocent and dismissed charges of colluding with Russians to undermine Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
A House report on the affair also cleared Donald Trump Jr., who has steadfastly denied any charges of collusion with Russians.
