Don Jr.: There's 'nothing to correct' about my previous testimony

Source: Politico

Donald Trump Jr. said Wednesday before his closed-door interview with members of the Senate Intelligence Committee that there was “nothing to correct” about his previous testimony.

The president's eldest son didn't comment further before walking into the Senate hearing room.

Trump Jr.’s second appearance before the committee comes after its chairman, Richard Burr (R-N.C), issued a subpoena to bring the president’s son back before the panel. Trump Jr. is expected to be interviewed for up to four hours and questions will be limited to five or six topics, based on an agreement he reached with the committee prior to his appearance.

Burr’s subpoena spurred a backlash from Republicans, who viewed Trump Jr.’s interview as unnecessary given the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election.

1. I still believe Burr is arranging this to allow Jr. to plead the Fifth.

In which case he would be free from prosecution.

12. Sounds more like repeating his perjury, than pleading the 5th.

4. Correcting the article:

"Burr’s subpoena spurred a backlash from Republicans, who viewed Trump Jr.’s interview as POTENTIALLY INCRIMINATING CITING theIR IRRATIONAL INTERPRETATION OF THE conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election."

5. Then he'll have to claim everyone else is lying.

They aren't calling him in to get his autograph. Apparently others have testified, under oath, with different answers than what he previously claimed to Congress.

Next: determine if there's enough evidence to prove the president's son lied to Congress. Is he above the law?

.............In the hearing room, where senators have been studying the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia’s election influence efforts, the younger Mr. Trump tried to undermine the two witnesses who had questioned his account, according to the person familiar with his remarks, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the private session. He said that those witnesses — Michael D. Cohen, his father’s former personal lawyer, and Rick Gates, a deputy campaign chairman — had both been indicted by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III. Details of the testimony were first reported by CNN.......................
