HERE WE GO: Don Jr.’s Closed-Door Testimony to Senate Intel Committee Leaks to CNN
That was quick.
Donald Trump Jr. was interviewed by the highly corrupt members of the GOP-led Senate Intelligence Committee Wednesday behind closed doors.
Last month, the GOP-led Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr. to answer questions about his prior testimony to Senate investigators related to the Russia investigation.
The Senate Intel Panel has interviewed over 200 witnesses and poured over hundreds of thousands of documents as part of their investigation into whether Trump’s camp colluded with Russia — the investigation started over two years ago in January of 2017.
Don Jr. previously testified to the Committee (for 25 hours) that he was only “peripherally aware” of the plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
RINO Chairman Richard Burr dragged the President’s son in front of the Committee again and a “source” has already leaked portions of Don Jr.’s testimony to CNN.
Donald Trump Jr. told the Senate Intelligence Committee Wednesday that he did not tell his father about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting and that he didn’t pay close attention to the Trump Tower Moscow project that was one of many potential deals that had been in the works, according to a source close to Trump Jr.
The source said that Trump Jr. also reiterated that he did not tell anyone ahead of time besides the participants about the Trump Tower meeting where a Russian lawyer offered dirt on Hillary Clinton, telling the panel that he did not know what campaign deputy Rick Gates was talking about after Gates told the special counsel that the President’s eldest son mentioned a potential offer of negative information at a campaign meeting.In Wednesday’s interview, Trump Jr. told the committee that he would never whisper in his dad’s ear about the meeting, the source said, because if he had wanted to say something he wouldn’t have kept it a secret.Trump Jr. dismissed that he was extensively briefed by Cohen about the Trump Tower Moscow project, saying that Cohen rarely executed a deal so he had little reason to pay attention to anything he may have been pitching, according to the sourceTrump Jr. was also questioned about whether he was aware of former campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s conversations with Russians and Roger Stone’s discussions with WikiLeaks, the source said. The source said that several topics did not come up during Wednesday’s interview included the initial misleading statement crafted on Air Force One about the Trump Tower meeting and the hush money payments Cohen facilitated in the run up to the 2016 election to silence allegations that Trump had affairs with two women.
“The reality was there’s nothing to change,” Don Jr. told reporters after his testimony. “I don’t think I changed anything of what I said because there was nothing to change. I’m glad this is finally over and we’re able to put final clarity on that. And I think the committee understands that.”

The Senate Intel Panel, chaired by RINO Richard Burr (R-NC) is purposely dragging out the Russia investigation and won’t be releasing a final report until the end of summer.
