According to Democratic House Intelligence Committee member Rep. Jackie Speier (CA), the House Democrats are going to use their newly-acquired power to begin targeting President Trump and his inner circle, starting with Donald Trump Jr.
During a panel discussion at the Woman’s National Democratic Club Tuesday night, Rep. Speier revealed who the first target of the intelligence committee’s investigation would be: Donald Trump Jr., the Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard reports.
“There are a number of persons that testified before the committee that I feel were not telling the truth,” she said. Among them is Trump’s son who spoke to the GOP majority intelligence committee about his much-reported meeting in Trump Tower with the Russia-connecting lawyer during the 2016 campaign.

Trump Jr. spoke with the Republican-led committee privately on December 6, 2017.
