Donald Trump Jr., the eldest son of U.S. President Donald Trump, appeared for a closed-door interview with the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday and then told reporters his responses were the same as during a 2017 appearance before the committee.

The appearance by Donald Trump Jr before the Senate Intelligence Committee follows a dispute that made headlines last month when the president expressed surprise that his son was being hauled before Congress for a second time as part of the panel's probe.

The panel is interested in talking to Trump Jr. about other topics as well, including a campaign meeting in Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer that captured the interest of special counsel Robert Mueller. The second-round interviews are primarily to give senators on the panel the opportunity to interview such witnesses directly, as the investigation has been largely staff-run.

The president's son is expected to field questions related to the committee's Russian Federation investigation. Trump Jr. had previously testified in front of a different panel, the Senate Judiciary Committee, that he was only "peripherally aware" of the project.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signs chemical castration for child sex offenders law
Steve Hurst, R-Calhoun County, sponsored the legislation and said last week it would help stop people from molesting children. MI used to have a law mandating chemical castration as a parole condition, but an appeals court in 1984 ruled it unlawful.

Democrats in Congress see the interview as an opportunity to hold Trump Jr.to account for his previous statements to lawmakers, some of which they believe were intentionally misleading, if not outright lies.

The Senate Intelligence Committee, chaired by Republican Richard Burr, is the only congressional panel doing a genuinely bipartisan investigation of Russian interference in USA politics and the 2016 US presidential election, in particular.

In February testimony, Cohen said he had briefed Trump Jr about a plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.

Among the questions Trump Jr. was likely to face is how to square his testimony on his knowledge of the secret pursuit of a Trump Tower development in Moscow during the 2016 presidential campaign with that of Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer and fixer. The subpoena was criticized by some of the president's most vocal defenders within his Republican Party.
