Senate Intelligence Committee Subpoenas Donald Trump Jr.

The United States Senate Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed one of the president's sons, Donald Trump Jr, to answer questions about his contacts with Russia, US media reported on Wednesday, citing unnamed congressional sources.

Grilled about his knowledge of the project in Moscow, Trump Jr said that he was only "peripherally aware" of the issue.

It's unclear if Trump Jr. will comply with the subpoena from the committee, which is chaired by Republican Sen. "Possible, possible, but unlikely".

Samsung wants to know: Do you still want your Fold pre-order?
What do you think about this announcement from Samsung? Here's what we know about the Samsung Galaxy Note 10. As said earlier the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 variants boast 6-28-inch and 6.75-inch variants respectively.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said earlier this week that it's "case closed" where special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is concerned, but Mulvaney said the Kentucky Republican was likely referring to Trump, not his son.

Trump Jr. had testified to the committee in September 2017 about proposed plans for a Trump Tower in Moscow.

The Senate Intelligence Committee has been looking into Russian election interference and Trump's ties to Russia for the last two years.

Freddie Starr dead: 'It's tragic' Neighbour says Starr 'never had any visitors'
A neighbour, who asked not to be named, told the newspaper: "His carer found him dead in his chair at around 3.30pm". Comedian Bobby Davro said on Twitter: "I've just heard that Freddie Starr has died". "This is Freddie's manager".

"Don and Senate Intel agreed from the very beginning that he would appear once to testify before the committee and would remain for as long as it took to answer all of their questions".

The 448-page Mueller report summed up the results of the special counsel's 22-month long investigation into allegations that Trump's team conspired with Moscow to influence the outcome of the 2016 election and that the United States president had obstructed justice. But thus far, the Senate Intelligence Committee, led by Republican Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) wrote on Twitter. "Let's move forward. With the strongest economy that we've seen in 50 years, now is the time to work together to solve actual problems".

White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said in an interview Wednesday he was caught off guard by the news of the subpoena and only found out when news reports broke. Multiple reporters have picked up a statement from an unnamed figure close to Trump Jr., who blasted Committee chairman Richard Burr (D-NC) and accused him of "cowardly" acquiescence to Ranking committee member Mark Warner (VA) and "the rest of the resistance Democrats".

United States crude oil production decreases slightly last week
Heightened tensions between the world's two biggest economies risk derailing global growth and could hurt oil demand. The demand is expected to rise by 1.5 million b/d in 2020, up from expected growth of 1.4 million b/d in 2019.

".@DonaldJTrumpJr has already spent dozens of hours testifying in front of Congressional committees", McCarthy tweeted. The White House has also asserted executive privilege to prevent former White House counsel Don McGahn from testifying.
