Donald Trump Jr. on Thursday expressed frustration over demands that he reappear before the Senate Intelligence Committee following the release of the Mueller report, saying that he is “fully cleared” of any wrongdoing following “30 hours of testimony nonsense.”
“No one has spoken to these guys more than I have,” Trump Jr. told “Fox & Friends.” “The Mueller report cites my congressional testimony, cites my Senate testimony, It cites my Twitter feed. The 19 leftist lawyers on that committee — who would love nothing more than to get a guy like me, and certainly my father — they didn’t do anything.”

Trump Jr. recently received a subpoena from the GOP-led committee, causing an outcry from Republicans who lambasted the action as being in “bad form” and “wrong.” Even President Donald Trump said he was “very surprised” to learn his eldest son had been subpoenaed by the Senate Intelligence Committee to testify as part of the panel’s ongoing investigation into Russian election interference.
“Democrats want an opportunity to try to attack me so they can do what (Sen. Richard) Blumenthal did to me in House Judiciary,” Trump Jr. said. “We finished up testimony; He asks, ‘Are there anymore questions?’ No. Either side, left, right. (Blumenthal) runs out 30 seconds later, he’s giving a press conference (saying), ‘There are many more questions.’ It is all nonsense.”
