Although other Republicans have expressed anger over the subpoena, McConnell has expressed only support.

On Wednesday, Donald Trump Jr. was subpoenaed by the Senate Intelligence Committee to testify before Congress about his ties to Russia. Republicans were angry with Senator Richard Burr (R-NC), the chairman of the committee, for issuing the subpoena.

“Apparently the Republican chair of the Senate Intel Committee didn’t get the memo from the Majority Leader that this case was closed,” tweeted Senator. Rand Paul (R-KY).

Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) may be in support of the subpoena according to Raw Story.

“In a close-doors GOP lunch, Burr walked through the backstory of the subpoena for Don Jr and defended his investigation’s work, per to people directly familiar,” New York Times’s Nicholas Fandos posted. “McConnell also spoke up, the people said, offering his support for Mr. Burr and his handling of the committee.”
