House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is criticizing a move by Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) to issue a subpoena of President Donald Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump, Jr.
McCarthy says that Burr’s move serves no purpose other than continuing “endless investigations” and that it is time for all of Congress–especially Republicans–to “move on”:
.@DonaldJTrumpJr has already spent dozens of hours testifying in front of Congressional committees. Endless investigations—by either party—won't change the fact that there was NO collusion. It's time to move on. It’s time to focus on ISSUES, not investigations. https://t.co/fbFH5uMLUz

McCarthy’s criticism of Burr comes as Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) also ripped the Senate GOP move to subpoena Trump, Jr., and more Republicans are expected to pile on Burr’s rogue move–which is in direct contravention of orders that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell gave on Tuesday that the case of the Russia investigation is closed.
