GOP senator calls for Trump Jr. to testify before Senate Intel Committee
Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) thinks it’s time for Donald Trump Jr. to talk with the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Collins told Bloomberg reporter Steven Dennis on Monday that she wanted Trump Jr. to talk with the Senate Intel Committee about his interactions with a Russian lawyer who promised him dirt on former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

The Senate Intelligence Committee is set to start interviewing Trump campaign officials next week, according to a recent report from ABC News.
Collins’ call for Trump Jr. to be interviewed by the committee comes on the same day that he admitted meeting with Kremlin-linked attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya — who told him that she had information that could damage Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign — in June 2016.
Trump Jr. tweeted out on Monday that, even though Veselnitskaya didn’t give him any useful information at the meeting, he felt he “had to listen” to her in case she really did have the goods on Clinton.
