The Senate Intelligence Committee issued a subpoena to Donald Trump Jr. over his earlier testimony about the Russia probe before the same committee, according to Wednesday news reports.

Axios and NBC reported the news. Ken Dilanian, an NBC reporter, wrote on Twitter that Senate investigators want to ask Trump Jr. about Trump Tower Moscow.

The reported subpoena comes after suggestions that Trump Jr.’s September 2017 testimony before the Senate did not correspond to assertions made by Michael Cohen as part of his plea deal.

The transcript of Trump Jr.’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee has been released and show that he claimed he knew very little about the deal. Transcripts from his closed-door testimony before the Senate and House Intelligence Committees remain under wraps.

Alan Futerfas, an attorney for Don Jr., did not immediately return a request for comment.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
