Donald Trump Jr. will appear Wednesday before the Senate Intelligence Committee


WASHINGTON (AP) – The eldest son of President Donald Trump will meet with the Senate Security Intelligence Committee Wednesday behind closed doors, according to two people close to the meeting.

Donald Trump Jr. travels to Capitol Hill to comply with a subpoena of the Committee's investigation into Russia. People requested anonymity because they were not allowed to publicly discuss the confidential interview.

The jury team interviewed Trump Jr. in December 2017. Senators renewed their interest after the testimony of Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen earlier this year.

In his February testimony, Cohen stated that he had informed Trump Jr. of a construction project of a Trump tower in Moscow. But Trump Jr. had told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he was "aware of the periphery" of the proposal.

The panel also wants to interview Trump Jr. about a 2016 campaign meeting with a Russian lawyer.
