Trump's inner circle frustrated by son's subpoena

President Donald Trump's son Donald Jr. was subpoenaed Wednesday to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee as part of its probe into Russian election meddling, United States media reported.

Dupree said the subpoena showed that there remain some Republicans who think it may not be "case closed" in regard to the Trump-Russia investigation. "The Mueller Report cleared @DonaldJTrumpJr and he's already spent 27 hours testifying before Congress", tweeted Burr's fellow North Carolina Republican, Sen.

"Apparently the Republican chair of the Senate Intel Committee didn't get the memo from the majority leader that this case was closed", Sen.

He was also quizzed about direct communications he had with Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, which leaked damaging documents and communications stolen by Russians from Clinton's campaign.

"Frankly, for my son after being exonerated and now, getting subpoenaed, and to go again to speak again after close to 20 hours telling everybody that would listen" about the Trump Tower meeting, Trump said, he was "very surprised" by the subpoena.

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.

A source familiar with the committee's deliberations said the subpoena went out "weeks ago" and all committee members were aware of it.

"My son's a very good person, he works very hard", Trump said, adding that Trump Jr. offered his assistance during his 2016 campaign.

Texas Senator John Cornyn said he can understand Donald Trump Jr.'s "frustration at being asked to come back after having cooperated for such a long period of time and seeing now that this Mueller report is completed". The committee has recently begun re-interviewing witnesses, including Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who appeared for a second time earlier this year. Mark Warner, have worked closely together on the probe and have often won praise from the panel's membership, and also from McConnell, throughout.

The reported subpoena prompted sharp rebukes from some of Trump's staunchest defenders within the party as Republicans sought to move on from a two-year investigation by U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, whose findings were released in part last month.

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