Donald Trump Jr. is clamming up on Russia. Republicans may help him get away with it.

In a closed-door interview with congressional investigators yesterday, Donald Trump Jr. refused to divulge the contents of a phone conversation with his father — that would be the president — that took place just after news broke of Trump Jr.’s now-notorious June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower with a Kremlin-connected lawyer. According to reports, investigators wanted to know whether Senior and Junior discussed what happened at that meeting and how they should respond to the news of it, but Trump Jr. cited attorney-client privilege and clammed up.

There is a perfectly reasonable chance that congressional Republicans will help Trump Jr. get away with this.

The question, though, is whether the House Republicans who control the committee will agree with this demand. Those Republicans said they were satisfied with Trump Jr.’s appearance. And Schiff told me he’s concerned that if Trump Jr. continues to refuse to discuss this call, Republicans will not press the issue, to avoid determining what happened on it.

“If the majority isn’t willing to find out, then they’re not living up to their commitment to the American people to follow the facts wherever they lead,” Schiff said. “Effectively they’re saying, ‘We don’t want to know where the facts lead, so we’re not going to insist on answers.’ ”

Yet more clear evidence of the approach Republicans take to anything tied to Trump:

Doesn't really matter.  A Mueller subpoena is the great equalizer.  When Don Jr gets in front of Bad Bob,  he can't claim these privileges.  Hope he doesn't lie.
