The news is just out that Donald Trump Jr. has reached an agreement to testify once more before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Here’s the lowdown:
Don Jr’s interview w/Senate Intel will be limited to 2-4 hours & limited in scope to 5-6 topics. The two sides agreed it will be the last time he will be asked to come before the committee in relation to its probe of Russian interference in 2016 campaign. https://t.co/pBVnnEJcRv

CNN – Donald Trump, Jr. and the Senate Intelligence Committee have reached a deal for the President’s eldest son to appear before the committee behind closed doors in mid-June, a source familiar with the matter told CNN.
The two sides reached a deal after the committee issued a subpoena for Trump Jr. to appear before the committee.
The interview will be limited to two to four hours and limited in scope to five to six topics, the source said. The two sides also agreed it will be the last time the President’s eldest son will be asked to come before the committee in relation to its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign.
So I guess my predictions for what would happen were wrong.
The fact that it’s behind closed doors is probably good for Trump Jr, to keep the spectacle of this to a minimum. But I assure you that whatever he says will be leaked almost immediately so we’ll know if anything happens.
