Senate Intelligence Committee vice chairman Mark Warner (D-VA) said on Sunday that President Donald Trump’s eldest son Donald Trump, Jr. should be compelled to testify before Congress in an open hearing.
“There are still a number of individuals” who the committee would still like to speak to, Warner said. “I mean, Michael Cohen, Mr. Trump’s lawyer, we want to bring him back. We want to bring Donald Trump Jr. in. He’s not testified yet.”
“Kasie D.C.” host Kasie Hunt asked Warner if he thinks that hearing should be public.
“Folks out to hear his side of the story,” said Warner.
Pres. Trump has said in the past that investigation of his family is the “red line” across which he would not allow special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation to proceed. Whether he will attempt to impose a similar restriction on the House and Senate’s investigations remains to be seen.

Here’s why Rudy Giuliani can not legitimately claim to be Donald Trump’s lawyer
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani bills himself as President Donald Trump's attorney. But one former prosecutor explained why that is not an accurate description during a Monday appearance on MSNBC.
"Meet the Press Daily" anchor Katy Tur interviewed former Southern District of New York Assistant U.S. Attorney Mimi Rocah, who is a distinguished fellow in criminal justice at Pace Law School.
"So this news that the SDNY is looking into what Rudy Giuliani was doing overseas in Ukraine, explain what they’re doing. Also, very weird since Giuliani used to run the office," Tur noted.
Rudy Giuliani’s bank records part of investigation by federal prosecutors: report
On Monday, the Wall Street Journal reported that President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani is having his banking records scrutinized as part of the federal criminal investigation into his dealings in the Ukraine.
The report says that prosecutors are also looking into his work for a city mayor in the country.
Giuliani has been a central figure in Trump's apparent scheme to extort the Ukrainian president into helping him dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, holding military aid appropriated by Congress hostage until the country investigates "corruption."
