Sen. Warner: Trump Jr. Subpoena Part of Committee's Duty in Probe

Sen. Warner: Trump Jr. Subpoena Part of Committee's Duty in Probe

Former deputy attorney general Tom Dupree said Thursday that it was "intriguing" to hear that a Senate committee controlled by Republicans is demanding that Donald Trump Jr. return to testify.

"If he refuses to obey it, he should be locked up".

Warner said he wouldn't comment directly on Trump Jr., as a witness, but "we have always said we reserve the right to call back witnesses if there's inconsistent testimony or inaccuracies".

Mueller's team of prosecutors said there was a "reasonable argument" that Trump Jr. had violated campaign finance laws but concluded they did not believe they could obtain a conviction. Trump also said he had already testified for a "massive amount of time".

Committee sources would not confirm the subpoena or what they want to discuss with the president's eldest son, who now helps run the Trump Organization, the family's real estate empire, and helps his father re-election campaign.

Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) is chairman of the committee.

The Latest on the Senate intelligence committee's subpoena of Donald Trump Jr.

"My son is a very good person, works very hard, and the last thing he needs is Washington, DC", Trump said.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., ripped those fellow Republicans calling for Trump Jr.to return to Capitol Hill, saying in a tweet that "endless investigations by either party won't change the fact there was NO collusion".

The committee is still investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election even after special counsel Robert Mueller spent around two years and tens of millions of dollars on his own probe, concluding that several groups of Russians interfered in the election but that no Americans conspired or cooperated with them. It's time to move on.

On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took to the Senate floor with a speech seeking to close the door on the investigations, declaring "case closed".
