Chairman Sen. Richard BurrRichard Mauze Burr Graham encourages Donald Trump Jr. to plead the 5th Trump weighs in on blowback to Trump Jr. subpoena: 'Really sad' Rand Paul: Trump Jr. subpoena a 'real travesty of justice' MORE (R-N.C.) told colleagues at a GOP caucus luncheon last Thursday that Trump Jr. voluntarily agreed to be interviewed twice but later withdrew, three people familiar with the remarks told the AP.
Trump Jr. and the committee had been in negotiations since December and interviews were scheduled for March and April, sources familiar with Burr’s remarks told the news service.
Burr detailed the scheduled interviews for his Republican colleagues after he faced blistering criticism for issuing a subpoena for Trump Jr. — the first known congressional subpoena to one of the president’s children.
Trump Jr. already testified behind closed doors before the House and Senate Intelligence panels in December 2017 as part of their investigations into Moscow's interference in the 2016 election. Neither committee has released a transcript of his closed-door appearances.
