Democratic Sen. Blumenthal threatens Trump Jr. with prison if he refuses subpoena

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

President Donald Trump says he's "very surprised" that the Senate Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed his eldest son. "He may be the president's son but he's not above the law and he has no privilege whatsoever".

Asked about the subpoena during a press conference on May 9, the day after it was issued, Trump said, "I was very surprised".

Blumenthal has called for Trump Jr.to appear before the Senate because he claims the Mueller report directly disputes comments he made during his 2017 congressional testimony.

Trump said that Trump Jr. already testified for 20 hours in front of Congress and that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators did not charge him.

Burr's committee had renewed interest in talking to Trump Jr. after Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, testified earlier this year.

Led by Republican chairman Richard Burr, the intelligence panel is the only committee in the Republican-controlled Senate that has been conducting a bipartisan investigation into allegations of Russian interference in USA politics.

He also said he was leaving the question of whether Mueller should testify to Congress up to his "great attorney general", William Barr. That's according to two people familiar with the subpoena who discussed it on condition of anonymity. Thom Tillis. "It's time to move on & start focusing on issues that matter to Americans". "There are a number of areas that need to be scrutinized by the Intelligence Committee". Burr and the top Democrat on the committee, Virginia Sen.

Mueller did not find evidence that Trump conspired with the Russians to meddle in the 2016 campaign, but did not make a recommendation on whether he obstructed justice. Endless investigations-by either party-won't change the fact that there was NO collusion.

When asked if Trump Jr. told his father about the meeting, he told senators, "I did not".

Warner would not comment on whether the panel had issued the subpoena but said the committee is going to "follow the truth wherever it leads".

Trump on Thursday also criticized top Democrats, including House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), reported Fox.
