"What is Senator Burr doing? Did he not hear your message?"

The committee chairman is Republican Sen.

"I think we have an important job to do to try to keep the intelligence committee out of politics", he added. I don't think the house thinks that, and they're gonna to stir this up. My son was totally exonerated by Mueller who doesn't like Trump, me.

While McConnell said in his Tuesday speech that it was "case closed" on the Mueller probe, his office noted that he didn't go so far to say the intelligence panel's work was done.

The immediate backlash from Republican lawmakers has fortified Trump Jr.'s allies, they say, and will continue to push for more of them to come out against the move.

Committee aides would not confirm the subpoena or what they want to discuss with the president's eldest son, who now helps run the Trump Organization.

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". While he also did not disagree with it, he did not agree either. Trump Jr., the president said, had already testified for a "massive" amount of time. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul a day earlier tweeted that Burr apparently "didn't get the memo from the Majority Leader that this case was closed". McConnell then stood up and defended him, saying he trusts Burr, according to the person.

Even the senators defending Burr left outs in their statements and commentary, in case they feel the need to cut bait down the road, but most Republicans party-wide threw Burr to the wolves and stood with Trump and Trump, Jr., against the continuation of the Senate's part in the Russian Federation hoax.

Lying to a congressional committee could be a crime, and Senate intelligence members are likely interested in finding out whether Trump Jr. deliberately misled them in 2017.

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.

Committee ranking member Sen.

Meanwhile, Burr's own home state colleague Sen.

It was the first time a Trump family member had been subpoenaed to testify. That's not to mention several other senators, like Sens. Lee Zeldin (R-NY). Rising GOP stars like Reps. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Roy Blunt (R-MO) and Susan Collins (R-ME), who issued statements or made comments backing him up.

Blumenthal was asked about what would happen if Trump Jr. didn't comply with the subpoena.

The Senate Intelligence's panel's final report could be delivered by August, and it needs to remain bipartisan, the senator said.
