Donald Trump Jr. agrees to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee again

Donald Trump Jr. and the Republican-controlled Senate Intelligence Committee reached a deal on Tuesday for the president's eldest son to sit for a private interview with senators in the coming weeks that will be limited in time, an accord that should cool a heated intraparty standoff.

CNN reported that Trump Jr. and Burr have been negotiating about his further testimony for the committee for months, but the legal team for the president's son has objected to the scope of the questioning, which encompasses various issues in connection with the Russian Federation investigation.

But at the eleventh hour before a second deadline, it was reported that Trump Jr. struck a deal to testify in June and avoid worsening the legal conflict.

Now, after a sustained pressure campaign from allies of the president and the first family, Burr has agreed to limit the scope and topics of the interview, as well as the length of time the president's eldest son will be expected to appear.

And even the Senate Intelligence Committee, which Burr chairs, noted that there was zero evidence to back up Russia-Trump collusion. Cohen pleaded guilty in November to lying to Congress and after the February testimony, Republican lawmakers said he should be referred for further prosecution for lying to them seven more times.

"If I were Donald Trump Jr.'s lawyer, I would tell him, you don't need to go back into this environment anymore", Graham told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday. "You have been there for hours and hours and hours, and nothing being alleged here changes the outcome of the Mueller investigation".

While Trump, Jr. had been signaling that he might blow off the subpoena entirely, his intent sources close to him say has always been to be helpful. "He's indicated publicly that he believes they will find no collusion, and we are hoping that we'll get a report on that stuff here".
