"Republicans said privately on Monday they were eager to avoid the clash and what would surely be an ugly floor vote if Trump Jr. ignores the Senate, and some hope the committee and Trump Jr. can work out a deal to avoid a floor vote on complying with the subpoena or even holding the president's son in contempt", wrote reporter Burgess Everett.

In his report, Mueller explained that he and his team considered charging Trump Jr. and others with campaign-finance violations for agreeing to meet with Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya based on their understanding that she could provide damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

The line of inquiry stems from claims made by the president's former personal lawyer and fixer, Michael D. Cohen, who told Congress earlier this year that the lawyers in question helped edit false testimony that he provided to Congress in 2017 about a Trump Tower project in Moscow.

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. Richard Burr, the Republican chairman of the committee, for issuing a subpoena to the president's son as the GOP tries to move on from the report by special counsel Robert Mueller.

The president's eldest son could also come for the questioning, but refuse to answer, pleading the Fifth Amendment's constitutional right against self-incrimination, Graham said the day before. They called the effort a political hit job against the White House, using the president's son as fodder.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) had opined that Trump Jr. should refuse the subpoena outright. "But it seems very unfair to me". "I don't know why". Schiff is prepared to issue a subpoena if the attorneys won't cooperate, a senior committee official said.

The detention marked the first time a North Korean cargo vessel had been seized by the United States for sanctions violations. US officials have shrugged off the three short-range missile tests, saying the door remains open for talks with the North.


Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has defended Burr, telling his colleagues during the private GOP luncheon that he trusted the intelligence committee chairman.

"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.

A spokesperson for the committee told CBS News last week, "We do not discuss the details of witness engagements with the committee". Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary Committee in a separate interview in 2017 he was only "peripherally aware" of the proposal.

He lost control of his vehicle at around 6pm Eastern, and crashed and died in the accident while trying to get home. The family of the deceased 24-year-old man, Nicholas Immesberger , has scheduled a 10 a.m. news conference Tuesday.


Mueller's report did not conclude that the Trump campaign worked with Russian Federation to swing the 2016 election in Trump's favor, but also did not exonerate the president of intentionally trying to impede the special counsel's investigation.
