(NationRise.com) – Son of former President Donald Trump and The Trump Organization’s executive vice president Eric Trump appeared on Newsmax for an interview on Monday. He claimed most Americans have lost respect for the justice system.
During the interview with host Rob Schmitt, Trump’s youngest cited his father’s indictment in Manhattan by a grand jury and then a federal indictment issued by a Miami court as part of why people are losing faith, viewing the persistent legal attacks as politically motivated.
Regarding the Justice Department targeting the former president, Eric Trump said he’s “fearful” for the United States because the “country can’t last this way.” He said the DOJ has lost the “confidence of the American people,” and that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in particular “is not respected” how it used to be, which he said is “sad to say” because the FBI was once “a great institution.”
Eric Trump criticized Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff for describing Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy’s proposal to expunge the former president’s impeachments as “a farce.”
He then claimed that Schiff was connected to the Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign plan to push the dossier responsible for launching an investigation into Trump for alleged connections to the Russian government, which was laid bare in the Durham Report. Eric Trump called Schiff “a farce in every way, shape, or form,” and said that he wished Schiff and his “fraudulent conduct” weren’t protected by the government.
Schiff and the Clinton campaign “made up a story” and “made up a dossier,” Eric Trump said, which was paid for “by Hillary Clinton.” He told the interviewer that “everybody knows” what really happened, that Clinton “tried to take down” his father. Eric Trump called their scheme “disgusting.”
Even GOP candidates running against Trump, like Vivek Ramaswamy, called the Trump indictment politically motivated. Ramaswamy compared the current state of U.S. politics to a banana republic.
