WASHINGTON, D.C. — In a rather unforeseen nexus of events, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton just happened to run into First Son Donald Trump Jr. at a D.C. area pie shop, and reportedly, the two exchanged brief, but terse words with one another.
Last night, news broke the Senate Intelligence Committee had issued a new subpoena to the president’s third smartest son in relation to contacts he had with Russia during the 2016 presidential election. Trump Jr. was at the center of one of the key incidents reported on by FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller, because he met with Russian attorneys at Trump Tower during the summer of that year. The president publicly admitted to helping his son draft a completely false and misleading letter about the meeting, claiming it was about American adoption law, when in reality the younger Trump would later admit that he took the meeting, which was also attended by Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and now jailed former campaign manager Paul Manafort, to get “dirt” that was offered to him on Ms. Clinton.
“Ah, Junior, funny running into you here at the pie shop,” Secretary Clinton was overheard telling Mr. Trump Jr., “Hey, thoughts and prayers little guy on that whole congressional testimony thing. But I think you’ll do just fine. You really only get in trouble if you lie to Congress, but you’re definitely smart enough to not do that. Oh wait, I kinda remember that being all over the Mueller Report. My bad.”
Donald Trump Jr. reportedly told Clinton he’d already testified before, and he didn’t think it was fair that he’d have to do it again. That line of defense has been trotted out by Trump loyalists all over social media. The moment word broke that the committee, which is led by a member of Trump’s own party, had issued the subpoena, tweets started being sent defending Trump Jr. on the grounds that he’d already testified before.
Congressman Gym Jordan took time away from his work inserting the president all the way down his throat, past his esophagus, and into his tummy to tweet support for Donald Trump Jr.
Senate Intel subpoenas @DonaldJTrumpJr.
He’s already testified for 25 hours. But they’re bringing him back based on Michael Cohen’s testimony, a guy who lied to Congress, came back, and lied 7 more times!
This is ridiculous. Mueller found no collusion. It’s time to move on.

Senator Chuck Grassley even stopped literally fucking a dinosaur fossil he used to date back in his day and had supportive comments for the president’s son.
Chuck Grassley: "I think about the time that he [Trump Jr.] spent hours w/our staff & testimony…everything post the Mueller report coming out & its conclusions of no collusion or any crime. What more is there to do now? You'll have to ask the people of the Intelligence Cmte."

“Oh,” Secretary Clinton was heard telling Trump Jr. back at the pie shop, “Did you already testify before congress? I can Benghazi how difficult that might be.”
With sarcasm so thick it could be detected by the EPA administration just a few blocks away, Clinton continued to mock the man whose own father probably will call him “fake news” within a few days.
“Yeah, I mean. Gosh, Don Jr. It must be really hard to have to talk about the same exact thing over and over again, no matter what investigations clear your name,” Clinton said. “Oh wait, sorry. I forgot that Mueller didn’t exonerate you, he just said you’re too dumb to prosecute.”
Before heading into the pie shop to eat her pie, Ms. Clinton gave the younger Trump some advice for testifying before a Senate committee for the second time.
“First, and I know this is going to be really hard for you Junior, so don’t give yourself too much grief if you can’t do it,” Clinton began, “but, try not to lie. At least, don’t lie so much. That’s it, really. Just, don’t lie to Congress under oath. You know, if you can help it.”
A stunned Donald Jr. watched Clinton turn on her heel and walk away. Then, she quickly turned back, startling him as she yelled.
“LOCK HIM UP!,” Clinton screamed, cackling. “Hey, wait right there, Junior, and I’ll bring you some humble pie.”
