House Intel Committee Now Investigating Trump’s Lawyers for Possible Obstruction

Sekulow is a lawyer for Trump, Futerfas represents Donald Trump Jr., Garten is the top lawyer at the Trump Organization, and Lowell is a lawyer for Ivanka Trump.

President Donald Trump's eldest son will give private testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee in mid-June, as a result of a deal revealed on Tuesday.

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff sent letters in March to four lawyers who were part of the President's joint defense agreement asking for documents and testimony related to the crafting of Cohen's 2017 statement to the committee and any discussions of presidential pardons.

His defiance of the subpoena would be a brash choice.

Trump Jr.'s allies waged a full-fledged campaign - backed by phone calls, in-person meetings with senators and his own retweets - against the subpoena aimed at pressuring Burr to end what has been the only bipartisan investigation in Congress of Russia's election meddling.

It shows you how much both Trumps apparently feared that Burr wasn't bluffing that Don Jr chose to make a deal with the committee to testify instead. "But it seems very unfair to me".

"When he originally agreed to testify in front of the Senate Intel Committee in 2017, there was an agreement between Don and the Committee that he would only have to come in and testify a single time as long as he was willing to stay for as long as they'd like, which Don did", the source said.

Sri Lanka imposes nationwide curfew as riots erupt weeks after Easter bombings
A second ban was imposed on May 5th after ethnic tensions erupted in Negombo, one of the cities targeted in the bombings. Army chief Mahesh Senanayake said the troops have been instructed to deal very strictly with those who defy the curfew.

Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., tweeted, "It's time to move on & start focusing on issues that matter to Americans." Sen. Cornyn's Texas colleague, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, a staunch supporter of Mr. Trump, told reporters Tuesday that if he were Trump Jr.'s lawyer, "I wouldn't put him back in this circus".

In the Republican-controlled Senate, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has declared "case closed" on special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

"He's indicated publicly he believes they will find no collusion, and we are hoping that we will get a report on that subject sometime soon", McConnell said about Burr.

Still, McConnell made it clear that he is eager to be finished with the probe, which has now gone on for more than two years.

All the members of the Senate Intelligence panel have known about the subpoena since it was issued weeks ago, according to a person briefed on the committee's process. They aren't members of the Intelligence Committee, which has been investigating Russian interference for more than two years under Burr's leadership.

The subpoena has highlighted a delicate bind facing Burr, a third-term senator who has said he is not running for reelection in 2022.

A lawyer for Trump Jr. did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
