Senators interested in re-interviewing Trump Jr.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Senate intelligence committee is interested in re-interviewing Donald Trump Jr. and other witnesses after President Donald Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, spoke to the committee last week.

That’s according to a person familiar with the probe who requested anonymity to discuss the confidential investigation. The committee first interviewed Trump Jr. in 2017.

Maine Sen. Susan Collins, a Republican member of the panel, said Thursday on CNN that senators “clearly need to re-interview some witnesses whose accounts (Cohen) contradicts.” She did not name the witnesses.

Cohen told a House committee last week that he had briefed Trump Jr. approximately 10 times about a plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2017 he was only “peripherally aware” of the proposal.
