Not only does Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-VA) want President Donald Trump’s son Don Jr. to testify, he wants the testimony to be public.

During a discussion about who needed to be interviewed, Warner checked off two big names.

“I mean, Michael Cohen, Mr. Trump’s lawyer, we want to bring him back. We want to bring Donald Trump Jr. in. He’s not testified yet,” Warner said.
