The seemingly endless competition to see who can out-awful the other rages on between the two doofuses we elected to the US Senate. Richard Burr — who ironically chairs the Intelligence Committee — has his committee subpoenaing Donald Trump, Jr. It seems Burr and the gang on the um, “Intelligence” committee cannot let the Russian collusion thingie go:
The Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr. to answer questions about his previous testimony before Senate investigators in relation to the Russia investigation, sources with direct knowledge told Axios.
Why it matters: It’s the first congressional subpoena — that we know about — of one of President Trump’s children. The subpoena sets up a fight that’s unprecedented in the Trump era: A Republican committee chair pit against the Republican president’s eldest son.
