Following Don Jr. Testimony, Dem Rep Says He Has ‘Serious Case of Amnesia’

Following Donald Trump Jr.‘s hours-long testimony behind closed doors to the House Intelligence Committee, one Democratic congresswoman said he has a “serious case of amnesia.” Congresswoman Jackie Speier told CNN’s Erin Burnett that the President’s son was “pretty non-responsive on a lot of issues that frankly you would have a recollection of, considering it was just a year ago.” “You get the impression in listening to him,” she added, “that he didn’t spend much time talking to his father.” Earlier tonight CNN reported that Trump Jr declined to tell the committee what he his father discussed regarding that infamous Trump Tower meeting:
Trump Jr. did not provide further details and invoked attorney-client privilege because of the presence of attorneys during the exchange with his father, Schiff said… Trump Jr. acknowledged to House investigators Wednesday that he spoke with senior White House aide Hope Hicks — and not his father — when first confronted with news reports about the Trump Tower meeting, saying they exchanged text messages, sources said.
Over on MSNBC in the previous hour, fellow House Intel Democrat Eric Swalwell said Trump Jr. “refused to answer any questions about conversations he had with his father.” Watch above, via CNN. [image via screengrab] — — Follow Josh Feldman on Twitter: @feldmaniac
