CNN: Trump Jr. to Talk Russia with Senate Judiciary Committee

‘This is the first time that the president’s eldest son will answer questions before any congressional committee about that June 2016 meeting’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
RAJU: “Yeah, that’s right. Because tomorrow is the staff level interview on the judiciary Committee. The first time that the president’s eldest son will answer questions before any congressional committee about that June 2016 meeting in which he was promised Russian dirt on the Clinton campaign, a meeting also attended by Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort. Earlier today when I had a chance to talk to Diane Feinstein about Mr. Trump, jr.’s appearance tomorrow, she said, this is not going to be the only time he comes to Capitol Hill, and he’s going to have to appear publicly.”

FEINSTEIN: “The agreement that we had is that there will be a public hearing. And if they don’t come, they’ll be subpoenaed.”

RAJU: “So, she’s using the S word, subpoenaed, and that’s something she said that she and senator chuck grassley, the Republican chairman on the committee, have agreed on moving forward on. Now, I did get a chance to ask grassley if he agreed with Feinstein’s interpretation. He declined to comment about this altogether. Now, wolf, this comes as a number of other revelations have really peaked the interest of Republicans and Democrats on the key committees, including those e-mails from Michael Cohen, the president’s attorney who sent those e-mails back during the campaign season about a trump Tower Moscow project they had been pursuing at the time. Senator Lindsey Graham, the Republican senator who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, says that raises questions.”
