Kevin McCarthy: Donald Trump Jr. testimony wouldn't change Mueller report outcome

In addition, Fox News has learned Trump Jr. was prepared to make the committee hold him in contempt and had a defiant letter drafted and ready to send - but at the last minute, the committee reached out to resolve the dispute.

Trump Jr. has already provided exhaustive testimony to Congress - he testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee for over five hours in September 2017, to the Senate Intelligence Committee for nine hours in December 2017, and to the House Intelligence Committee for more than eight hours in December 2017.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said that if he was the lawyer of Donald Trump Jr. This is the same assertion that President Trump's lawyers contend proscribes congress from subpoenaing his personal financial records, arguing that such action falls outside the scope of Congress' constitutionally mandated investigative powers.

So, for now, the temperature on this fight comes down-but simmering tensions between Burr and the Trump universe are unlikely to fade forever, and this may foreshadow a bigger fight to come in the future sometime between the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Trump-world.

Mueller's report detailed 10 possible instances of obstruction of justice and extensive Russian interference into the 2016 presidential election.

Lawmakers reportedly plan to press Trump Jr. on his previous claim that only Jared Kushner and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort were aware of Veselnitskaya's offer, based on new evidence included in the Mueller report that suggests he informed the campaign's entire senior staff. On "The Takeout" podcast, Mulvaney was critical of the GOP-led committee for not informing the White House.

"I never heard of a senator saying disobey a valid lawful subpoena issued by the chairman of another Senate committee", Napolitano said.

"You know it's really a tough situation because my son spent, I guess, over 20 hours testifying about something that Mueller said was 100 percent OK".

Republicans have accused the investigation of being politically motivated. Sen. Michael Cohen is a worthless witness, and if I were Donald Trump Jr.'s lawyer I would tell him, 'You don't need to go back into this environment anymore, you've been there for hours and hours and hours.

"Mueller to me is the final word on all things Trump and Russian Federation".

"Richard Burr is a very good friend. But here's what we've got to realize as oversight chairmen: there's criminal liability exposure to people who voluntarily submitted themselves to multiple investigations".

A committee spokesperson declined to comment. "He's indicated publicly that he believes they will find no collusion and we are hoping to get a report on that subject very soon".
