[size=30]The Senate issues a memorandum to summon Trump JrBy the news agency May 15, 2019 8
Donald Trump Jr., the eldest son of President Donald Trump, has agreed, after long reluctance, to appear before a Senate panel in June to testify on Russia's intervention in the 2016 presidential election, US media reported
. The Senate Intelligence Committee, controlled by his father's Republican allies, summoned Trump Jr. to clarify some points about the investigation by Special Envoy Robert Mueller about Russia's interference in the presidential election and the possible complicity between Moscow and the Tramp campaign team.
Donald Trump Jr., 41, who now runs Trump, the family's real estate empire, testified in 2017 to Senate committees over several hours, but this time he refused to meet the committee's call, prompting it to use its powers and issue a warrant.
It is the first time that Congress has issued a writ of habeas corpus against a member of the president's family. A number of them, including Donald Trump Jr., have already come willingly to testify in the case of Russian intervention in the 2016 presidential election
. The commission wanted to hear Donald Trump's second time in the investigation, which ended in March and found no evidence of conspiracy between Moscow and the Republican candidate during the presidential campaign.
The committee, according to the same sources, wants to clarify the son of the president about the statements made at that time, especially concerning the issue of construction of the Trump Tower in Moscow.
