Donald Trump Jr. has reached an agreement with the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee for the panel’s senators to interview him in mid-June, a congressional source familiar with the matter told Reuters on Tuesday.


The closed-door appearance could cover a broad array of topics, the source said. These could include what Trump Jr. knows about a Trump Tower project in Moscow and about a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump Jr., Trump campaign adviser Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and a Russian lawyer, the source said.


The agreement for Trump Jr.’s appearance was first reported by the New York Times.


The source disputed news reports suggesting the questioning would be limited to five or six topics pertaining to Trump Jr.’s communications with Russian officials.


A committee spokesperson declined to comment. A lawyer for Trump Jr. did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


The panel had subpoenaed Trump Jr. to appear before the committee, two congressional sources said last week.
