The subpoena calls on Trump Jr. to testify on his contacts with Russia.
Should he refuse to appear and comply the Senate Intelligence Committee could vote to place him in contempt.
U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) says Trump Jr. is not exempt from the law and has no special privileges.
"If Donald Trump Jr. defies this subpoena he ought to be jailed," Sen. Blumenthal said Thursday. "He has no privilege, he has no right to say no. He may be the president's son but he's not above the law and he has no privilege whatsoever."
