A member of the presidential family is summoned to court: this is the first time
The US Senate Intelligence Committee summoned the eldest son of Donald Trump to testify in the case of Russian interference in the elections, writes USA Today.
This is the first known agenda for a member of the presidential family.
Why it causes, it became clear not immediately. According to a source, when Trump Junior first appeared before the committee in 2017, it was agreed that this would be only once. According to the source, Trump Junior will provide the documents and answer written questions, but will not participate in what the source called the advertising course.
The representative of the committee did not confirm or deny the information about the agenda.
“We are not discussing the details of witness participation with the Committee. Throughout the investigation, the Committee reserved the right to withdraw witnesses to obtain additional testimony as needed, as every witness and witness lawyer was informed, ”the spokesman said.
The news of the subpoena appeared as tensions intensified between the Democrats and the Trump administration. On Wednesday, Democrats in the House Judicial Committee voted to accuse Prosecutor General William Barr of contempt of Congress for his refusal to submit an unverified copy of the report of special adviser Robert Muller about Russia's interference in the 2016 election of the year.
The minority leader in the House of Representatives Kevin McCarthy, California, opposed the subpoena, despite the fact that it came from members of his own party.

“Donald Trump Jr has already spent dozens of hours testifying before congressional committees. The endless investigations by either side will not change the fact that there was no collusion. It's time to move on. It's time to focus on QUESTIONS, not investigation, ”he tweeted.
Donald Trump Jr., in September 2017, testified in a Russian interference case before the US Senate Juridical Committee. The committee members asked him questions about the negotiations with Rob Goldstone, who allegedly promised the help of Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in providing information compromising Hillary Clinton.
