Donald Trump Jr. appeared on Fox News Unfiltered with Dan Bongino Sunday to respond to the ongoing investigations against his father. Don Jr. claimed that his father is being targeted in New York because he is a political enemy to the Attorney General and District Attorney.
New York Attorney General Letitia James is investigating whether or not former President avoided tax liabilities. Meanwhile, Manhattan District Attorney Cryus Vance Jr. is investigating whether he committed tax crimes, insurance fraud, or other financial crimes. So far, the DA has only indicted chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg.
Following the indictment of Weisselberg, James made a statement that alluded this is the first step of a long journey. “This investigation will continue,” James wrote. “And we will follow the facts and the law wherever they may lead.”
First, Trump Jr. broke down the allegations against his father.
“This is what they promise you for five years, if they are going to take down time, what do they get? Indictment obviously.” Don Jr. said. “They make it look real serious, they say he didn’t pay taxes on $1.7 million over 16 years, that’s the New York state 8% of that, $136,000. Half of that was because my father paid for his grandchildren’s school in New York City so you take that out. It’s about five grand a month, that’s what they promise.”
Meanwhile, the state has much more serious ongoing crimes. Trump Jr. suggested that New York focus on more prevalent crimes instead. “They brought an outside prosecutors and teamed up with the attorney general over New York state to do this so while crime is running rampant while the numbers are skyrocketing,” Trump Jr. said. “While people are fleeing New York, and while people are afraid to go into Times Square or Penn Station, this is what they are focused on. After all of those things they promised you, they do this.”
Trump Jr. tweeted out a New York Post article on the increase of hate crimes in the state. “Imagine what the DA/AG could do if they used a few percent of the energey and recourses [sic] they expend going after their political enemies on say stuff like this?” he tweeted Sunday.
Instead, he alleges that his father is being targeted because of politics.
“Our legal system used to be based on precedent but apparently that is out of the window, as long as you’re political enemies,” Trump Jr. said. “This is what Vladimir Putin does to the opposition party in Russia. This is what the mullahs do in Iran. But it’s happening in America and because the media is on that side, they are okay with letting it happen, they are not what you call it out and it’s a disgrace.”
