Although the nature of the Requirement of the Senate Intelligence Committee after Trump Jr.'s testimony is unknown, is the decision of His Republican Chairman, Senator Richard Burr, was sharply criticized by the Conservatives in the House of Lords to accuse the president's son.

Last month, Senator Lindsey Graham, RSC, suggested that Trump Jr. ignore the summons.

"If I were his lawyer, I would not reinstate him at this circus – the freak show in the house – I will not let it come to the Senate," Graham told ABC News in May. "We gave Muller two years and [1945931] million dollars – it's over for me."

A source close to Trump Jr. said last month that he was "incredibly grateful to the members who flew for him, and he would reciprocate the favor for the 2020 campaign."

Following reports of the summons last month, President Donald Trump said he was "surprised" by the move.
