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

Trump Jr. has previously met with three congressional committees, including the Senate Intelligence Committee in December of 2017, with whom he met for more than nine hours as part of their investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

It comes as two House Democrats on Thursday joined activists at the US Capitol who presented Congress with signatures of 10 million people calling on lawmakers to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

Top Republicans criticized the committee's decision to subpoena Trump Jr. Reports on Wednesday indicated that the Senate Intelligence Committee is interested in comments Trump Jr. made to congressional committees about his knowledge of the Trump Tower Moscow project.

Trump Jr, 41, has testified voluntarily in private once to the committee and was peppered with questions about a June 9, 2016 meeting in Trump Tower in NY that he and other campaign officials had with a Russian lawyer who had offered them dirt on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The person, who requested anonymity to discuss the internal negotiations, said members had been regularly briefed on communications with Trump Jr.

House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings issued the subpoena to Mazars, which compiled Trump's financial disclosure forms, over questions about whether Trump manipulated his net worth.

Pochettino's dream turns sour as Spurs misfire against Ajax
Spurs were forced to ride their luck - Ajax hit the woodwork while Hugo Lloris made an excellent stop to deny a Van de Beek brace. Harry Kane (injured) and Son Heung-min (suspended) were both missing for Spurs and their absence was felt going forward.

Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) is chairman of the committee.

The reported subpoena prompted sharp rebukes from some of Trump's staunchest defenders within the party as Republicans sought to move on from a two-year investigation by U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, whose findings were released in part last month.

But Maine Sen. Susan Collins, a Republican member of the panel, hinted after Cohen spoke behind closed doors to the Senate intelligence panel that the committee would want to talk to Trump Jr. again. 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".

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 report notes that Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary Committee, however, that he did not inform his father about the emails or the upcoming meeting. Warner made the comments at a breakfast Thursday hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. The president now claims executive privilege over that material. He called Mueller's report "the Bible" and that "they say he did nothing wrong". That's the bible. The Mueller report came out and they said he did nothing wrong.
