Fox News Anchor Ed Henry filled in for Martha MacCallum on her show “The Story with Martha MacCallum.” Henry interviewed Dem Senator Chris Coons and asked him why Dems felt the need to subpoena Donald Trump Jr since Mueller did not indict him.
“We hear about the subpoena from the Senate Intel committee today for Donald Trump Jr. to come back. Robert Mueller talked to him. He has talked to the Senate Judiciary Committee that you serve on, and at the end of the day, Robert Mueller did not indict Donald Trump Jr. So why is the Senate still wanting to hear from him?” Henry asked Coons.
Coons could only guess at the answer as he is not on the Intelligence committee.
That’s right and that’s an excellent question. I don’t know the answer to that. It was the intelligence committee, a committee I don’t serve, that issued a subpoena for him. My best hunch is that the Mueller report revealed some ways in which Donald Trump Jr. was well aware of either the ongoing Trump Tower Moscow project, or some aspects of the meeting in Trump Tower with folks offering dirt on Hillary Clinton, who were Russian, that wasn’t testified about to the intelligence committee, and they want to bring him back in to see if they can get a straight answer out of him.”

Henry next asked why now if Mueller didn’t recommend charges on Trump Jr. if he lied? Coons claimed that Mueller left many questions unanswered with his report and that is why they want to question him. Coons then went on to talk about how they wanted to talk to Mueller about the call with AG Barr and where he stands on the report.
Looks like Coons has no idea why Trump Jr. is being called in. He is just trying to push the current Dem narrative that the Mueller Report is still the answer to incriminating Trump.
