Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee plan to subpoena Donald Trump Jr. as part of their renewed investigation into Russia and the 2016 presidential election, the Washington Examiner is reporting.
Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., a committee member, was asked Tuesday night about who would likely be subpoenaed first.
She replied: “Donald Trump Jr.”
Democrats on the committee suspect some of those who had testified privately, including Trump Jr., were not forthcoming, according to the Examiner.
“There are a number of persons that testified before the committee that I feel were not telling the truth,” said Speier, who addressed the Women’s National Democratic Club in Washington.
Speier said she believes special counsel Robert Mueller will soon present a clearer picture of Russia’s involvement in the election.
“I think in short order we’re going to see all of the dots connected in a way that shows that there were people that were treasonous, there were people that were clearly conspiring to affect the election with the Russians, and it will go down in history as one of the real black eyes in our country,” she said.
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who now chairs the intelligence committee, said in December that the president may face “the real prospect of jail time” because of his link to former lawyer Michael Cohen’s campaign finance violations.
