Trump Jr. reached an agreement to testify before the committee following the subpoena. He agreed to testify for between two to four hours behind closed doors.
Mr. Trumpto learn of his son had been subpoenaed.
“My son’s a very good person, he works very hard. The last thing he needs is Washington, D.C. He’d rather not be involved,” the president said in May.
Trump Jr. was a key figure in the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower in New York in which a Russian lawyer connected to the Kremlin met with him and senior campaign officials.
