"President Trump hit back Thursday at the Senate Intelligence Committee’s move to subpoena his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., while accusing Democrats pursuing Russia-related investigations even after the closure of Robert Mueller's case of "conning" the country.
In the Oval Office, Trump was asked about the subpoena issued to Trump Jr. on Wednesday evening as part of the committee’s Russia investigation."

“I was very surprised. I saw [Chairman Richard] Burr saying there was no collusion two or three weeks ago,” Trump said. “I was very surprised to see my son—my son is a good person, he works hard. The last thing he needs is Washington, D.C. He’d rather not be involved.”

I'm surprised that the Senate Intell committee would do this without telling the president they were going to do so. Don Jr. has already testified about this for multiple hours to the senate members so why do it again.
I'm guessing the Never Trump people are attempting to make the President and his family look bad and split the part in 2020.

    Cohen said "he had briefed Trump Jr. approximately 10 times about a plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow."

    But in 2017, Trump Jr. told the Senate Intelligence Committee he was only “peripherally aware” of the proposal.

    Given the number of projects and the campaign, I suggest that being briefed 10 times over a period of months IS only being peripherally involved.

      Agree with you statement. Also not too sure that Cohen is all that reliable a witness about anything Trump related. He sould have been composing as opposed to singing.
