Claire McCaskill: Don Jr’s Calling Richard Burr a ‘So-Called Republican’ WIll Not End Well With Senator
Claire McCaskill is warning Donald Trump Jr. not to make things worse for himself now that the Senate Intelligence Committee has issued him a subpoena.
McCaskill was on Morning Joe Thursday to talk about this, and at one point, the panel discussed a public statement from someone close to Trump Jr. who blasted the call for the president’s son to face questions about his Russia investigation testimony. The statement refers to Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) AS “a so-called Republican senator too cowardly to stand up to his boss Mark Warner and the rest of the resistance Democrats on the committee.”

“This is not going to sit well with Richard Burr,” McCaskill said. ” if you’re getting called by your own party with an investigative subpoena, probably one of the pieces of advice your lawyer would give you is don’t insult the chairman right out of the gate.”
McCaskill went on to say it was interesting that the GOP-led committee issued their subpoena after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that was time to put an end to the Russia probe.
