Donald Trump Jr Subpoenaed By Republican-Led Senate Judiciary Committee.
This may sound like a shock, but it seems like a play. Almost chess like. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays into everything else.Written by Wayne Dupree ·
Donald Trump Jr, President Trump eldest son, was subpoenaed by the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday afternoon.What makes this weird is that the Republicans control the Senate, or shall I say they are in the majority, so calling President Trump’s son is being done why?
Have they found something that was inconsistent and needed to be brought to light? Does this have anything to do with Michael Cohen or anyone else indicted under the Mueller investigation?
This may sound like a shock, but it seems like a play. Almost chess like. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays into everything else.The committee, which is Republican-led, issued the subpoena in order to get answers about Trump’s prior testimony before Senate investigators during the Russia investigation, according to Axios.
In September 2017, Trump Jr. testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about proposed real estate plans for a Trump Organization project in Moscow. During testimony Trump Jr. said he was just “peripherally aware” of the plans. In a January interview on Fox News he claimed he knew little of the project, saying that President Trump’s former personal attorney and fixer Michael Cohen was behind the discussions.“We don’t know anything about it.
Ultimately, it was Michael Cohen essentially trying to get a deal done,” Trump Jr. said.Despite Trump Jr. downplaying his involvement, Cohen made the claim before the House Oversight Committee in February that he had briefed the president’s son on the project about 10 times. [Washington Examiner]
The Senate action is fine, but Donald Jr didn’t wasn’t indicted. No crime committed or no crime that could be prosecuted. Donald Jr nor any of the presidents family are covered by the OLC ruling that you cannot indict a sitting president.
If I were Donald Jr, I would show up, plead the 5th. I would also tell them that unless there is an indictable crime, then you can go pound sand.Depending on the 2020 election outcome, this will go on one year or five years.
Watch it go away the day after Trump’s last day in office.Now can we for a change throw Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton in prison for their truly treacherous deeds? Not sure whether Barack Obama committed a crime, being an unamerican global-government Muslim is not against the law.
