In what might be one of the most stunning moves to take place recently, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell just stabbed Donald Trump Jr. in the back.
As noted by Axios, the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed Trump Jr. to answer questions about his previous testimony before Senate investigators in relation to the Russia investigation.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not indict Trump Jr. or recommend any charges be brought against him.

So why is McConnell, the highest ranking member in the Senate, allowing Republicans to drag out the Russia witch hunt and subpoena President Donald Trump’s eldest son?
A Senate Intelligence Committee spokesperson told Axios: “We do not discuss the details of witness engagements with the Committee. Throughout the investigation, the Committee has reserved the right to recall witnesses for additional testimony as needed, as every witness and witness counsel has been made aware.”
Don and Senate Intel agreed from the very beginning that he would appear once to testify before the committee and would remain for as long as it took to answer all of their questions. He did that. We’re not sure why we’re fighting with Republicans,” a source close to Trump Jr. told Axios.
Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Republican Richard Burr has the power to shut down every request from Democrats.
So why did he approve a subpoena from Democratic vice chair Mark Warner and Democrats?
The subpoena is over the infamous Trump Tower meeting.
Trump Jr. testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in September 2017 that he was hardly aware of proposed plans to build a Trump building in Russia.
Michael Cohen, the president’s former attorney who reported to prison this week, testified before the House Oversight Committee in February that Trump Jr. was well-aware of the project.
So, Democrats are trusting Cohen — a convicted liar and criminal — and trying to drag Trump Jr. back in front of Congress to discuss something that may or may not have been discussed two years ago.
The question remains: Why is McConnell allowing Democrats to subpoena Trump Jr. over this nonsense?
The report, which Democrats apparently have not actually read, clearly proves the president has been vindicated.

Earlier this month, Attorney General William Barr put the final nail in the collusion coffin and reiterated countless times that Mueller found no evidence that Trump, his campaign, or any American colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
Barr said he consulted with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and they both determined there was no evidence to charge Trump with obstructing justice in the Russia probe.
The president has been completely vindicated after the two-year Russia witch hunt — but Democrats refuse to give up.
And for some bizarre reason, McConnell is allowing Senate committees to subpoena Trump Jr. to answer allegations from Cohen, a convicted liar who is sitting in prison.
