Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said earlier this week that it's "case closed" where special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is concerned, but Mulvaney said the Kentucky Republican was likely referring to Trump, not his son.

Mulvaney said in Wednesday's CBS interview that while he was not told that Trump Jr. would be subpoenaed, he did not know whether others in the White House had been informed. "Throughout the investigation, the Committee has reserved the right witnesses to make another statement again on demand to be included", - quotes "Axios" a spokesman for the secret service Committee.

Alan Futerfas, a lawyer for Trump Jr., declined to comment on the subpoena.

The Senate intelligence committee has been investigating Russian election interference and Trump's ties to Russia for the last two years.

In 2017 Trump Jr testified he was only "peripherally aware" of proposed plans for the Moscow project.

Congressional Democrats think that in his previous turns on Capitol Hill, Trump Jr may have lied to investigators about that meeting and whether he alerted his father that the meeting would take place, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday. The Senate intelligence committee has interviewed numerous same witnesses the Mueller investigative team spoke with.




Trump Jr. had participated in June of 2016 in New York's Trump Tower, to a Meeting with a Russian lawyer, the duty had provided Material about trump's campaign rival Hillary Clinton.

The Senate Intelligence Committee, chaired by Republican Richard Burr, had reportedly discussed bringing in Trump Jr. weeks before the release of the Mueller report.

Trump Jr. did not address the subpoena on Twitter immediately after the reports emerged.

Trump Jr. testified before the Senate intelligence committee for more than nine hours in December 2017, and before the Senate Judiciary Committee in September 2017. What are the aspects of the house intelligence Committee Trump Jr. now more want to ask, is not yet known.

In his report, Mueller detailed extensive contacts between Trump's election campaign and Russian operatives, but did not find evidence of a conspiracy. Rick Gates, Manafort's former deputy who was charged and pleaded guilty in the special counsel's investigation, told Mueller's team about the discussion. "Ultimately, it was Michael Cohen essentially trying to get a deal done".
