  • Senate Minority Leader Bobby Singleton D-Greensboro objected strongly to the Senate stripping a rape and incest exception from a bill to ban abortion without a roll call vote

Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal on Thursday said Donald Trump Jr. should be "locked up" if he "defies" the subpoena issued this week by the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Burr himself brushed past reporters at the Capitol, saying only, "I'm not taking any questions". Trump said he was "very surprised" at the move. He testified for hours and hours. "My son is a good person", he said. "Yeah, I'm pretty surprised".

It's the first known subpoena of a member of Trump's immediate family and a new sign that the Senate panel is continuing with its own two-year-long investigation, even after the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report and Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's call from the Senate floor on Tuesday to move on. My son was totally exonerated by Mueller who doesn't like Trump, me.

Lara Trump, 2020 Trump campaign senior adviser and the president's daughter-in-law, said Thursday that trying to coerce Donald Trump Jr., to testify again before the Senate or putting him in jail "is not going to make Hillary Clinton the president of the United States".

House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings issued the subpoena to Mazars, which compiled Trump's financial disclosure forms, over questions about whether Trump manipulated his net worth.

It's also the first real sign of any dissention among members of the committee, who have worked together quietly since the panel's Russian Federation investigation began in early 2017. Mark Warner (D-Va.), (L), talks with committee Chairman Sen. "The Mueller Report cleared @DonaldJTrumpJr and he's already spent 27 hours testifying before Congress", tweeted Burr's fellow North Carolina Republican, Sen.

The committee has been investigating Russian election interference and Trump's ties to Russia for the last two years.

Two months before Mueller submitted his report, the Senate Intelligence Committee concluded that there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

Congressional sources on Wednesday said that the committee, which is among those investigating Russian interference in the 2016 USA election, had issued a subpoena to Mr Trump Jr to appear again before the committee to discuss his previous testimony.

Trump Jr. already has provided exhaustive testimony to Congress. Endless investigations - by either party - won't change the fact that there was NO collusion. "It's time to focus on issues, not investigations". Rand Paul (R-KY) and Steve Daines (R-MT), throwing gas on the fire by ripping the subpoena.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) claimed his Republican committee chair, Sen. Nadler is a smart guy.

In resisting the congressional subpoenas, Trump Jr. joins several Trump administration officials who are refusing to cooperate with congressional subpoenas, including Attorney General William Barr and former White House lawyer Don McGahn.
