Donald Trump Jr. speaks ahead of his father President Trump at a Make America Great Again rally Saturday

Donald Trump Jr. has reached an agreement with the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee for the panel's senators to interview him in mid-June, a congressional source familiar with the matter told Reuters on Tuesday.
Trump Jr. already testified behind closed doors before the House and Senate Intelligence Committees in December 2017 as well as the Senate Judiciary Committee in September 2017-some 27 hours altogether, a source close to Trump Jr. The committee's chairman, Republican Senator Richard Burr, suddenly found himself at the center of an uncomfortable standoff with his own party and the president last week for wanting to haul in a member of the Trump family at a time when the administration is stonewalling numerous investigations by House Democrats.
"When he originally agreed to testify in front of the Senate Intel Committee in 2017, there was an agreement between Don and the Committee that he would only have to come in and testify a single time as long as he was willing to stay for as long as they'd like, which Don did", the source said.
Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., outlined the events at a GOP caucus luncheon Thursday after weathering fierce criticism for the subpoena of President Donald Trump's eldest son, according to three people familiar with the remarks. Senator John Cornyn of Texas, a GOP member of the panel, said he understood Trump Jr's frustration. Trump won. And even the Senate Intelligence Committee, which Burr chairs, noted that there was zero evidence to back up Russia-Trump collusion.
It's unclear if Trump Jr. will comply with the subpoena, or whether the committee will take action to hold him in contempt if he doesn't. "They're requesting him back based upon something that Cohen has said, when he is in jail for lying to Congress", Mr. McCarthy said on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday.
The president on Tuesday said he believed that his son was being treated poorly.
The primary agenda is expected to focus on knowledge Trump Jr. may have about the proposed Trump Tower Moscow project as well as his involvement in a June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower in New York City with a Russian delegation after an offer of "dirt" on Hillary Clinton.
"None of us tell Chairman Burr how to run his committee", the Kentucky Republican said.
So, for now, the temperature on this fight comes down-but simmering tensions between Burr and the Trump universe are unlikely to fade forever, and this may foreshadow a bigger fight to come in the future sometime between the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Trump-world.
Trump Jr.'s stance about the interviews changed after special counsel Robert Mueller's probe on Russian election interference ended without any charges, according to a person familiar with his beliefs but not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations.
