Donald Trump Jr. has agreed to appear before the US Senate Intelligence Committee, ending for the time being a heated fight within the GOP over the Republican-led panel's Russia investigation.
His decision to be interviewed comes after a backlash from President Trump and top Republicans over Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr's (R-NC) decision to subpoena him, despite completion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report. The terms of the compromise include an appearance by Trump Jr. in mid-June, with questions limited to a half-dozen topics and the time limited to no longer than four hours, The New York Times reports.
Senate investigators are particularly interested in asking Trump Jr. about an infamous June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower in Manhattan with a Russian lawyer who promised “dirt” on Hillary Clinton, as well as about his knowledge of a proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow.
