President Donald Trump’s sons have gone on the defense for their dad, taking to national television to call out fired FBI director James Comey’s looming Capitol Hill testimony as little more than a “witch hunt,” various media reported.
Trump himself has called the whole Russian fiasco a witch hunt, as well.
Just in March, the president went on national television to denounce the false mantra the Democrats were trying to sell, painting their calls for impeachment as shrouded in lies, spins and deceptions.
Now, in the leadup to Comey’s testimony, his sons appear to be doing the same.
In an interview with ABC, both Eric and Donald Trump Jr. said this whole Russians-hacked-the-election mantra has gone on far too long.
“It’s the greatest hoax of all time,” Eric Trump said, ABC News reported. “I was there throughout the campaign. We have no dealings in Russia. We have no projects in Russia. We have nothing to do with Russia.”
And yet, Democrats won’t stop the anti-Trump train to clear the air — and speak the truth.
From ABC News:
“‘I definitely see a political establishment working to make it difficult for him to succeed,’ Donald Trump Jr. said. ‘But I don’t know enough about the details of Comey and what he’s gonna do there.’
“Both sons said they have not been contacted by anyone at the FBI asking for an interview or information regarding the Russia investigation. Eric Trump dismissed the idea that the recent appointment of Robert Mueller as a special counsel should be read as bringing any new legitimacy to the investigation.
“‘I mean, I really think they had to, optically,’ he said. ‘But it is nothing more than a witch hunt. At the end of the day, I really believe nothing will come out of this in any way.’
“ABC News reported recently that both Eric and Donald Trump Jr. were visited by the FBI on May 8 — the day before Comey’s firing — regarding an attempted overseas cyberattack against the Trump Organization.
“Both brothers said there was no discussion of the Russia investigation in that meeting, and no contact with their father was made following the meeting regarding the attempted hack or Comey specifically.
“‘Obviously, as a company in America, we’re susceptible like so many others to potential cyberattacks,” Donald Trump Jr. said. “And so that was the extent of what I can actually talk about. But it had nothing to do with the [Russia investigation].'”
