President Donald Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump, Jr., gave his thoughts regarding his subpoena for further testimony in front of the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee in regards to their investigation into Russian election interference.
Speaking with “Fox & Friends” Thursday, Trump Jr. gave his thoughts on the Senate Intelligence Committee’s subpoena for further testimony that is expected to have an unlimited scope, saying he has “always said [he] was going to be reasonable” and that “no one” has addressed the committee “more than [he]” has.
The president’s son pointed out that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report into Russian election interference “cites [his] congressional testimony,” his “Senate testimony,” and his “Twitter feed.”
Then, he blasted the Republican Senate Intelligence Committee chairman, Senator Richard Burr (R-N.C.), as being “too weak” to push back against the Democrats.
“The Mueller report cites my congressional testimony, cites my Senate testimony. It cites my Twitter feed. The 19 leftist lawyers on that committee who would love nothing more than to get a guy like me and certainly my father, didn’t do anything. But these guys are going to do it. And you have one Republican who’s too weak to stand up to the Democrats, he won’t do it.”
“He’s not going to stand up to the Democrats,” Trump Jr. reiterated.
The president’s eldest son then brought up that the committee itself was “bipartisan” when he first went in there but that the atmosphere changed “the second two of them” — Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) — announced they were running in an attempt to unseat the president.

Trump Jr. went on to blast the Democrats as “want[ing] an opportunity” to “try to attack me” so that they could get more media air-time.
“It’s all nonsense,” Trump Jr. added.
As IJR News previously reported, Trump Jr. came to an agreement with the Senate Intelligence Committee for further testimony in the committee’s investigation into Russian election interference next month. The hearing could potentially be over a variety of topics, including the infamous Trump Tower meeting.
