Donald Trump Jr. and the Senate Intelligence Committee have reached a deal for him to speak to the committee again, the New York Times, The Hill and CNN reported. The agreement heads off a major dispute over a subpoena the committee issued Trump Jr., after he reportedly twice bailed on plans to come in voluntary for additional question.

Under the agreement, according to the Times, Trump Jr. will speak to the committee for two-four hours in mid-June. The scope has been limited to five topics, according to the Hill. The June appearance will also be the last time Trump Jr. is asked to speak to the committee, under the agreement, as reported by CNN.

The agreement comes after many Republicans, including President Trump himself,  bashed the move by the committee’s chairman, Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) to issue the subpoena.
