Trump Jr. strikes deal for ‘lim­ited’ Se­nate in­ter­view

The Tribune (SLO) - - Insight -

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.

The deal came af­ter a push by the younger Trump’s al­lies, who ac­cused In­tel­li­gence Com­mit­tee chair Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., of cav­ing to Democrats by is­su­ing a sub­poena. Burr has said that the pres­i­dent’s son had twice agreed to vol­un­tary in­ter­views but had not shown up, forc­ing the sub­poena.
