AP sources: Trump Jr. subpoena sent when interviews declined

Source: AP

WASHINGTON (AP) ó The Senate intelligence committee subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr. after he backed out of two scheduled interviews as part of the panelís Russia investigation, the chairman of the committee told his Republican colleagues last week as he tried to stem criticism from the move.

Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., outlined the events at a GOP caucus luncheon Thursday after weathering fierce criticism for the subpoena of President Donald Trumpís eldest son, according to three people familiar with the remarks. They requested anonymity to discuss the private senatorsí meeting.

Burr told colleagues that Trump Jr. had twice voluntarily agreed to interviews and later backed out. The committee had been in negotiations with Trump Jr. since December and had scheduled the interviews for March and April, according to one of the people familiar with his remarks.

Senators on the committee want to go over answers Trump Jr. gave the panelís staff in a 2017 interview and ask further questions. Itís the first known subpoena of a member of the presidentís immediate family, and news of the move prompted strong words from Burrís Republican colleagues, including some who went as far as to say they thought Trump Jr. shouldnít comply.
