RINO Burr STEADFAST on subpoena, Coons suggests PERJURY TRAP

Richard Burr sending a subpoena to Don Jr. makes all Republicans look bad and he has set off some infighting.

Some Republicans argue that Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son, has spent enough time testifying before Congress [27 hours], and that the delivery of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report means it is time to end the investigations of the last presidential election.

“There’s no need for another subpoena for @DonaldJTrumpJr. It’s time to move on & focus on issues American care about,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) tweeted Thursday.

He was one of several Republicans in the House and Senate who was critical of the decision to subpoena Trump Jr., which Burr made in consultation with his panel’s ranking member. Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.).

It is obvious that the goal is simply to try and catch Don Jr in a perjury trap or say something that will hurt his father.

It’s disgraceful that Burr and McConnell are allowing this, given the vicious attacks from the left.

Not one Republican member of the Senate Intelligence Committee is backing Burr in this. Burr is strictly on the side of Democrats.

BURR WON’T GIVE IN

According to Talking Points Memo, Burr has no intention of pulling the subpoena.

“Burr reportedly has no intention of withdrawing the subpoena, which requests that Donald Trump Jr. appear before the Intelligence Committee to testify over statements he previously made to the committee,  Republican senators told Politico. Democrats on the committee have been calling for Trump Jr. to appear to discuss how his past statements line up with the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe,” Talking Points Memo states.

COONS SAYS IT INDIRECTLY — IT’S A PERJURY TRAP

Chris Coons was asked about it by Ed Henry who was filling in for Martha MacCallum and he said it was a good question. He suggested the reason:

“That’s right and that’s an excellent question. I don’t know the answer to that. It was the intelligence committee, a committee I don’t serve, that issued a subpoena for him. My best hunch is that the Mueller report revealed some ways in which Donald Trump Jr. was well aware of either the ongoing Trump Tower Moscow project, or some aspects of the meeting in Trump Tower with folks offering dirt on Hillary Clinton, who were Russian, that wasn’t testified about to the intelligence committee, and they want to bring him back in to see if they can get a straight answer out of him.

They want to get “a straight answer out of him,” and think he was “well aware?” In other words, they hope to catch him in a perjury trap.
