Trump Jr. Asked To Testify Before Senate Judiciary Committee, "Will Subpoena If Necessary"

Tyler Durden's picture

The Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) , has invited Donald Trump Jr. to publicly testify about his meeting with a Russian lawyer offering compromising information on Hillary Clinton, with the AP noting that the committee "will subpoena" Trump's son if it is necessary.

It would mark the first formal, public invitation for President Trump's eldest son to meet with lawmakers, who have been clamoring to hear from him over the June 2016 meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

Previously, Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, told reporters this week that she wanted Trump Jr. to publicly testify before the committee.

"This is aired on front page newspapers. It should be aired front page [in the] United States Senate. The committee of jurisdiction is clearly the Judiciary Committee," she told reporters. “It’s not an Intelligence matter.” She added to CNN on Thursday that she wanted Trump Jr. to testify as soon as next week.

According to The Hill, members of the Senate and House intelligence committees have also said they want to meet with Trump Jr., though neither have publicly invited him.

Separately, Grassley and Feinstein also said that they are willing to subpoena Paul Manafort to testify before their committee.

He can ignore the subpeona like Susan Rice and many others, or simply plead the Fifth like Lowrenta and Lois Lerner did and simply refuse to answer.

Or follow this down the rabbit hole it is to the truth.  Fight fire with fire.

BREAKING: Senate Judiciary Committee chairman says he is asking Donald Trump Jr. to testify; will subpoena if necessary.

------------------------------------------------------

 Oh for fuckssake, it's not like the Russians drove Hillary over a cliff or threw votes into the river or gave Trump a billion dollars. Trump way underspent Hillary and outfoxxed the Democrats' savvy, super with-it, Obama-honed, social media strategy to boot.

If the Russians had hacked into Trump's private server and uncovered a kiddie-porn ring, causing him to lose, the NYT headline wouldn't be: "Russians Meddle In Election!"  But somehow, after Hillary's and the DNC's OWN EMAILS make them look like criminal sleaze (which US voters are now better informed for having learned about BTW)....its all about the Russia angle which is just a tiny bit beside the point.

You want to see SERIOUS, foreign influence and pay-for-play in a US election???

Is good to see that Trump switches from jew-in-law to son as confidant.

He's learning slowly but surelly.

And lets see what he will learn from those lame french. Or maybe they will learn about women and style from Melania.

First Lady Melania Trump Amazes Everyone in Paris

Isn't she divine?? What an inspiration for ALL American women. I adore her as well as Ivanka. Both are smarter than any First Lady and daughter ever in office before. The fact they are both extremely beautiful and amazing stylists doesn't hurt either. I LOVE how the world is giving her the credit the MSM refuses her.

But I'm sorry, I just hate your "Jew-in-law" description. I wanted to be honest and clarify that because the anti-Jewish vein is strong with some on here. I don't want others to think I'm of that vein which is the only reason I mention it.

Who wants to wager that the missing HRC emails point at a scheme much more sophisticated than the link above?  Upvote to Mercury for reminding me of that early precursor to the current unreported(mostly) pay for play out of the HRC SOS!

"BREAKING: Senate Judiciary Committee chairman says he is asking Donald Trump Jr. to testify; will subpoena if necessary."

So how is it that the Senate Judiciary Committee can force a private citizen to testify before it but was completely IMPOTENT to compel a previous employee of the government to testify?

Yup. Had nothing to do with a meeting with the President of France. Go back to Community College, 20-week boy.

My responseL To all, I read the comments and here is my final take on the matter. This entire process is an example of a miscarriage of justice. We are focused on the wrong issues and the wrong people.

My prayer is that the LORD GOD send a meteor to land on the capital building while both legislative bodies are in session. We need to start over.

I am far from a Trump apologist.  But Jeebus Crust dickhead. GO AWAY.  You're like hitting the remote  and landing on Madcow ruminating her last hairs.

But I do take solace in knowing that the only people who support your stupidity are snowflakes, government workers, or those who got their money through a windfall.  NOBODY who has produced wealth by actual work supports you dickhead.

normally I would tell you that you're an idiot but this is actually an interesting point. why did Trump went to Europe for the 2nd time. He could meet with Macron while he was in Germany its blinking 2 hours drive amd 20 min flight

The only person on the planet that can pardon himself is afraid of third rate DNC operatives' fake leaks?

Please try harder ... c'mon seriously, many do appreciate your Courage to bring the Democrat's asinine talking points to the table. Seriously, please put more effort into it.

Actually he's there because the French Presidnt begged him to come. You should have seen the photo shoot of him scrambling so he would be photographed next to President Trump at the G20. It was absolutely charming;)

He can surely ignore by just saying "do you know who is my father?"

lester1's picture

Why the fuck isn't Loretta Lynch or Susan Rice testifying?? They appear to have committed actual crimes !!

 

When President Trump gets back from France he needs to go nuclear and fire Rosenstein and Mueller, and on the same day release all the classified JFK and Roswell Crash documents !!

 

Give the dishonest liberal media and deep state something to chew on !!

They keep sending to Lowrenta so she never signs for it.

It's being reported that Comey has immunity deal with Mueller.

Where is Comey? Still no news from his friend (what's his name).

Maybe he got WITSEC?  Avoiding being a Victim of Arkanacide?  Decided to skip the Seth Rich treatment?  

Or, keeping his trap shut...hoping that an ambitious AAG doesnt bring charges against him!

Which is an affirmative defense, right?
He can still be tried.

Arctic Frost's picture

However, wouldn't it be hysterical if Meuller actually was full of integrity as they say and the reason he brought on all those Clinton lawyers was because he has no choice but to file charges against many Democrats? The ONLY way he could do that and save his political career would be to have a bevi of Democratic supporting lawyers all in agreement and part of the investigations.

I know, it's highly unlikely but maybe, just maybe what everyone was saying about him when he was first appointed is actually true.

The country is going off the cliff and we worry about this?  OK.  Just burn the damn place down so we can start over already.

CheapBastard's picture

The Dems and the medai don't cae about the country; they only care about staying in power so they can continue to destroy America.

Countrybunkererd's picture

Agreed.  It needs to be played to the end, unfortunately.  He should testify, get to why the woman was here past her visa AND why she got special permission to be here after the first denial.  What IS going on?  Play their game because it will NOT go away.

garcam123's picture

So CORRECT!

He should make the points so as to show a set-up by Cuntlin and Ohumma to try and dis-credit Trump.  Turn about is fair play!

Expose and arrest this cabal of incompetence and put them in cages forever in one of the private prison this trash loves so much!

Envy is a powerful emotion.

Good luck with that attitude about people you don't know but that may have a few extra dollars. Sure it may not matter when you are sucking up to the DNC mob, but eventually it might.
