Supreme Dullard Trump Jr Called To Testify Under Oath Over Russia Ties

Donald Trump Jr has been called to testify in front of a government panel investigating his pop’s links to Russia, after it was revealed he met with a “Russian government attorney” who promised seriously incriminating dirt on Hillary Clinton.

The Senate judiciary committee has requested both Trump Jr and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort to testify under oath on July 26. Their presence should make for the most intense public grilling over the Russia scandal since ousted FBI director James Comey gave his take.
News of Trump Jr’s meeting provided the most concrete suggestion yet that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government, and that they directly sought the help of a foreign power to unsettle the election.
Regarding the chances of Trump Jr actually facing those heated q’s, his lawyer Alan Futerfas told Politico “we’re discussing this with various committees. That’s where I’m going to leave it.” 

Manafort was also present at the July 2016 meeting, and his team is presenting the same message as Trump Jr’s. According to Manafort spokesperson Jason Maloni, they received the committee’s request and are reviewing their options. 

Jared Kushner, Trump Jr’s brother-in-law and a vital figure in the Trump campaign, has also been called to testify behind closed doors for the Senate intelligence committee. You guessed it: Kushner was present at the meeting too. 

His attorney Abbe Lowell confirmed Kushner would face the committee on July 24, and that “he will continue to cooperate and appreciates the opportunity to assist in putting this matter to rest.”

FWIW, a steady drip-feed of scoops regarding the meeting forced Trump Jr to post the email chain about its organisation to his own Twitter. If that’s his response to a string of media bombshells, you can only imagine what’ll happen if he’s all-but interrogated on live television.
