JUST WHEN I THOUGHT I WAS OUT

Don Jr. may have thought the Russia investigation had passed him by, but the Senate wants another sit-down.
Welcome to Rabbit Hole, a breaking-news analysis that helps you get smart on the one story everyone’s obsessing over—for Beast Inside members only.
Donald Trump Jr. might have thought he was done with the Russia investigation, but he isn’t, and he’s got a Republican to blame for it. The GOP-controlled Senate Intelligence Committee would like the president’s son to sit for another round of questioning, prompting Don Jr.’s team to throw down against a prominent Republican senator. So what’s got under the eldest Trump boy’s skin?
Firing fury: Axios got the scoop that the committee wants a second crack at Trump Jr. As it turns out, he’s not real excited about the idea. A source close to Don Jr. told The Daily Beast: “Don is a private citizen, who has already been cleared by Mueller after a two-year investigation. He has done 8-9 hours of testimony in front of Senate Intel already and 27 hours of testimony in front of various committees in total.”
