The House Intelligence Committee may join the Senate Intelligence panel in issuing a subpoena to Donald Trump Jr., its chairman, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), told MSNBC's "The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell" Wednesday evening.

Details: Schiff cited inconsistency concerns about Trump Jr.'s testimony before his committee. "We may bring back some of the witnesses that we've had in before," he told host Lawrence O'Donnell.

The backdrop: Earlier Wednesday, the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenaed President Trump's eldest child to answer questions about his previous testimony before Senate investigators in relation to the Russia investigation, sources with direct knowledge told Axios.

Why it matters: It's another indication the Russia investigations in Congress aren't over, despite the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

McMaster: Trump's peaceful transition comments are a "gift to our adversaries"

President Trump's refusal to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses November's presidential election is a "gift to our adversaries," Trump's former national security adviser H.R. McMaster said Sunday.

The big picture: McMaster, a retired three-star general, said that the American people must understand that the military will have "no role" in a presidential transition, and that it's "irresponsible" to even talk about it as a possibility.

President Trump on Sunday tweeted that the Supreme Court invalidating the Affordable Care Act would be "a big WIN for the USA!"

Why it matters: Democrats have argued that confirming a Trump-appointed justice to the Supreme Court would put the Affordable Care Act, which protects pre-existing conditions, in jeopardy. Trump's Supreme Court pick, Amy Coney Barrett, has written that she disagreed with Chief Justice John Roberts when he ruled to uphold the law.

At a rally in Pennsylvania last night, President Trump basked in adulation for Judge Amy Coney Barrett and said, "She should be running for president!"

Why it matters: She might as well be. The Trump campaign is thrilled to be talking about something besides the president's handling of COVID, and it's going all-in to amp up the court conversation.
