On Wednesday, a report from Axios revealed that a GOP-led Senate Intel Committee subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr. in connection with his relationship with Russia.
The subpoena is calling on Trump Jr. to “answer questions about his previous testimony before Senate investigators in relation to the Russia investigation, a source told Axios.
Users on Twitter warned that this move was a “big step.”
“It’s the first congressional subpoena — that we know about — of one of President Trump’s children,” the report said.

This Republican-led Committee apparently didn’t get McConnell’s memo that this case is closed. https://t.co/B9t2iWnxyXADVERTISEMENT

This is huge. Worth remembering that Michael Cohen said he briefed Trump Jr. several times about the Trump Tower Moscow negotiations. https://t.co/QJiXF1rgS0

They plan on tickling each others nuts just for shits and giggles. Anything lead by the @GOP is for distorting the truth and help with the cover up.ADVERTISEMENT

There’s some kind of motive here and I’m guessing it’s not one grounded in truth. Doesn’t Junior imagine himself as a future presidential candidate? Perhaps this is clearing the slate for something else down the road. In any case, I don’t trust them.ADVERTISEMENT

Or this is part of some GOP-led ruse to pretend that they still care about what happens to the the laws & Constitution of the US.
