Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) said first-son Donald Trump Jr. should be “locked up” if he refuses to comply with the Senate Intelligence Committee’s subpoena.
“If he fails to answer, he ought to be put in jail,” Blumenthal told reporters today. “If he fails to comply with a lawful subpoena, he has no privilege, prison is the only answer.”
Later, Blumenthal added onto his comments about Trump Jr., saying that President Donald Trump‘s oldest son “has no privilege, he has no right to say no. He may be the president’s son but he’s not above the law and he has no privilege whatsoever.”
Blumenthal has called for Trump Jr. to appear before the Senate because he claims the Mueller report directly disputes comments he made during his 2017 congressional testimony.
