The deal came after an aggressive push by the younger Trump's allies, who accused the Intelligence Committee's chairman, Senator Richard M. Burr of North Carolina, of caving to Democrats by issuing a subpoena for the president's son's testimony.

Graham also appeared on "Fox News Sunday" to declare Congress's attempts to continue probing questions about Trump's 2016 campaign, its communications with Russian Federation, and potential obstruction of justice by the president "worthless", and said Trump, Jr. should not respond to the subpoena.
The subpoena comes three weeks after special counsel Robert Mueller cleared President Trump, his campaign, and his family of any supposed collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election. They requested anonymity to discuss the private senators' meeting.

While Trump, Jr. had been signaling that he might blow off the subpoena entirely, his intent sources close to him say has always been to be helpful. I have no idea why.
Led by Republican chairman Richard Burr, the intelligence panel is the only committee in the Republican-controlled Senate that has been conducting a bipartisan investigation into allegations of Russian interference in USA politics. Cornyn's Texas colleague, Republican Sen.

"He's indicated publicly he believes they will find no collusion, and we are hoping that we will get a report on that subject sometime soon", McConnell said about Burr. This is the same assertion that President Trump's lawyers contend proscribes congress from subpoenaing his personal financial records, arguing that such action falls outside the scope of Congress' constitutionally mandated investigative powers. On Tuesday, McConnell told reporters that "none of us tell Chairman Burr how to run his committee".
