Trump Jr. Agrees to Meet Voluntarily With January 6 Committee Investigators

Donald Trump Jr., the son and former President Donald Trump will be speaking with investigators from the House select committee that is investigating the attack on the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6, 2021. This will happen in the near future. sources told ABC News on Thursday.
