President Trump’s eldest son will meet with the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday behind closed doors, according to two people familiar with the meeting.

Donald Trump Jr. will head to Capitol Hill to comply with a subpoena from the panel’s Russia investigation. The people requested anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss the confidential interview publicly.

The panel’s staff previously interviewed Trump Jr. in December 2017. Senators had renewed interest after Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, testified earlier this year.

In February testimony, Cohen said he had briefed Trump Jr. about a plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. Trump Jr. had told the Senate Judiciary Committee he was “peripherally aware” of the proposal.
