Donald Trump Jr. requests inquiry into Intelligence Committee leaks about his Russia collusion testimony

December 12, 2017

  Back on December 6th Donald Trump Jr. testified in front of the Intelligence Committee about a meeting he attended with Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, and a Russian lawyer named Natalia Veselnitskaya. This was supposed to be a closed door meeting but some of his testimony was leaked to the press and now he is demanding an investigation into to the leaks. Here is more:

Donald Trump Jr.’s attorney has sent a letter to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence requesting an inquiry into leaks he says took place during and after Trump Jr.’s interview with the committee on December 6. The letter was sent to Representative Mike Conaway of Texas, who took over the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election from Devin Nunes, after Nunes recused himself earlier this year.

The letter says that Trump Jr. and his attorneys were promised that the interview would be “kept strictly confidential and not discussed publicly unless and until the full committee voted to release the transcript.”

Trump Jr. and his attorney say that while he was still being interviewed, “members of the committee and/or their staff began selectively leaking information provided during the interview to various press outlets, most notably CNN.”

  I understand where he is coming from, if somebody on the Committee leaked testimony to the press we need to know who it was because this person cannot be trusted. And if these leaks were occurring during the “interview” it is very troubling. However, does anybody really believe an investigation will amount to anything?  He is basically asking the Intelligence Committee to investigate itself and I think we know how that would end, if it even were to begin in the first place.

    Totally disgusted with today’s hearing….. For some reason can’t we know whether the FBI paid for the Russian Dossier? Now the excuse is there is an Inspector General investigation and can’t comment….. this is really getting old.

      I didn’t see the hearing but from what I have read it is clear they are hiding something. Doesn’t the Congress have priority over an IG investigation? It is time for another special investigation.

      Thanks for the link! It is clear the FBI and DOJ were conspiring to stop Trump and we need a special investigation immediately!
