Trump Jr. said "I am glad this is finally over, we're able to put some final clarity on that, and I think the committee understands that".

President Donald Trump's eldest son will testify Wednesday behind closed doors to a Republican-led Senate committee investigating Russian Federation election meddling, a congressional source said.

It was the first known subpoena of a member of the president's immediate family, and some Republicans went so far as to suggest Trump Jr. shouldn't comply. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., tweeted, "It's time to move on & start focusing on issues that matter to Americans." Sen.
