Sen. Warner: Trump Jr. Subpoena Part of Committee's Duty in Probe

By    |   Thursday, 09 May 2019 02:47 PM

The Senate Intelligence Committee is most likely the last truly bipartisan committee left in the Senate and will continue to get the facts out about the 2016 election, including issuing a subpoena for President Donald Trump's son, Donald Jr., Sen. Mark Warner, the top-ranking Democrat on the committee said Thursday.

"Throughout this whole now over two years investigation, the chairman has been under assault to shut the investigation down. I've been under pressure from Democrats to reach a final conclusion before we finish our report," the Virginia senator told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell.

"We're the only bipartisan committee left investigating the Russia intervention….We're going to stay to our duty which is get the facts out. Make sure we put in procedures and processes to make sure it doesn't happen again whether it's election security, social media or making sure an affirmative obligation."

Warner said he wouldn't comment directly on Trump Jr., as a witness, but "we have always said we reserve the right to call back witnesses if there's inconsistent testimony or inaccuracies."

Meanwhile, it is not unusual that a White House doesn't like Congress, Warner said, but the Trump administration is "blowing off" House requests, and that marks a "disrespect for the rule of law" that he fears will become the new norm.

"The next time there will be a Democratic president, he or she will act this way, and that is not the way our Constitution was set up," said Warner. "We are three co-equal branches of government, the Congress, the executive, and the judiciary. It feels like this White House doesn't like to acknowledge or recognize that."
