Donald Trump Jr. is refusing to answer more questions before the Republican-led Senate Intelligence committee, CNN reports.

Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Vice Chairman Mark Warner, D-Va., last week subpoenaed Trump Jr. for information on his role in a June 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer and his pursuit of a Trump Tower Moscow project.

In 2017, Trump Jr. told Congress he knew "very little" about the proposal. But former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, who is serving a three-year sentence for tax and bank fraud, stated he briefed Trump family members on the Moscow tower project that never materialized "approximately 10" times.

Trump Jr. has already provided exhaustive testimony to Congress – he testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee for over five hours in September 2017, to the Senate Intelligence Committee for nine hours in December 2017, and to the House Intelligence Committee for more than eight hours in December 2017.

The subpoena comes three weeks after special counsel Robert Mueller cleared President Trump, his campaign, and his family of any supposed collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
