Senate Judiciary Chairman, Chuck Grassley, is calling on Trump jr. to testify before the judiciary committee over the emails about his Russian meeting:
CNN – The heads of the Senate judiciary committee are writing a letter to Donald Trump Jr. Thursday requesting that he testify before the committee, Chairman Chuck Grassley told CNN.
Grassley, R-Iowa, previewed his intentions Wednesday when he told reporters that he wanted former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort to testify before the committee as early as next week, following revelations related to Trump Jr.’s email exchange with a Russian lawyer regarding potentially damaging information against Hillary Clinton.
Grassley’s comments also come after the top Democrat on the committee, California Sen. Dianne Feinstein told CNN Thursday she wanted Trump Jr. to go before the committee as early as next week.
Also, Grassley says he will subpoena Trump Jr. if he decides he doesn’t want to comply:

If this is a public testimony, it will be a YUGE spectacle and Democrats will undoubtedly try and make their mark in this one hearing.
