Trump says 'very surprised' by son's subpoena in Russian Federation probe

Sen. Burr takes GOP fire over Trump Jr subpoena

Trump Jr has already testified at length to the committee, and was "totally exonerated by Mueller", his father said. "The Mueller Report cleared @DonaldJTrumpJr and he's already spent 27 hours testifying before Congress", tweeted Burr's fellow North Carolina Republican senator, Thom Tillis, one of several GOP senators who criticized Burr. Richard Burr for his committee's subpoena of President Donald Trump's son, a move that suggests the Russian Federation investigation is not "case closed", as some in the GOP insist.

President Donald Trump says he's "very surprised" that the Senate Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed his eldest son.

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. John Cornyn, R-Texas, who said he understands the younger Trump's "frustration". McConnell then stood up and defended him, saying he trusts Burr, according to the person.

Mueller's team of prosecutors said there was a "reasonable argument" that Trump Jr. had violated campaign finance laws but concluded they did not believe they could obtain a conviction.

"Mueller is a criminal justice investigation", Rubio said.

Multiple Republicans had coalesced around Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's talking point of "case closed" in recent days, but now Democrats can argue that even members of the President's own party don't agree that all Russian Federation inquiries should end immediately.

Trump businesses reportedly lost more than $1 billion over a decade
The Times quoted a lawyer for the president, Charles Harder, as saying the tax information was "highly inaccurate". Because most of his businesses were not created as partnerships, Trump was on the hook for federal income taxes.

In an interview this week conducted before the revelation of the Trump Jr. subpoena, Burr - who was elected to a third term in 2016 and has said he will not run again - dismissed any notion that politics is influencing his investigation. "I think that it is time to let it go and move on and try to deal with the people's business".

Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, appeared for a second closed-door session in late March.

On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took to the Senate floor with a speech seeking to close the door on the investigations, declaring "case closed".

Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., the committee's vice chairman, also expressed confidence Thursday that Burr would hold the line against fresh attacks from within his own party.

Part of that job, Warner said, was to ensure that the elections were "protected in 2020" - the same cycle in which most of Burr's critics will be facing their next political test.
