Donald Trump Jr. invited to testify before Congress – Politico

President Donald Trump’s eldest son has been invited to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee — and the panel’s chairman says he’s willing to subpoena him if necessary.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) told reporters Thursday he was sending Donald Trump Jr. a letter asking him to testify and hoped he would come “pretty soon,” perhaps as early as next week.

Grassley added that he was willing to wield his subpoena pen to compel Trump Jr.’s attendance.

The invitation comes as Trump Jr. is engulfed in a growing controversy over a meeting he attended last year with a Russian lawyer.

Emails released by Trump. Jr. show the meeting was pitched as a chance for the lawyer to provide damaging information about Hillary Clinton as part of a Russian government effort to help the Trump campaign.

The meeting was also attended by Trump son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

In an interview earlier this week with Sean Hannity of Fox News, Trump Jr. said that in retrospect he “probably would have done things a little differently.”
