Trump Jr.: Mueller Probe on 'Things People Did in Past Lives'

By    |   Monday, 25 February 2019 10:41 AM

Special counsel Robert Mueller's team is not investigating "actual crimes," but instead, "things people did in past lives," President Donald Trump's oldest son Donald Jr. said Monday.

"They're literally trying to find something they can make a big deal of," Trump Jr. told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "What they did is they put incredible pressure on regular guys that couldn’t afford million dollars in legal fees, got them to slip up, say something incorrectly. They pretended they’re their friends.”

But the incidents are "only things that people did in past lives, in 2006 before we even thought we'd ever get into this crazy world," he added.

The president's former attorney, Michael Cohen, is to testify this week before three congressional committees, and Trump Jr. said he thinks it is "pretty pathetic" that the court would bring in a "convicted felon and known liar" like Cohen while his father is heading to Vietnam to speak with North Korean Chairman Kim Jong Un.

Trump Jr. also complained Monday that he believes social media sites are targeting him, including on his comments on the scandal concerning "Empire" star Jussie Smollett and accusations he created a hoax attack.

He said his comments were pulled from Twitter, and then he learned, through followers, that his name does not turn up as a top find on Instagram when they search.

Despite the apparent hoax by Smollett, Trump Jr. said hate crimes exist  and racism remains a "very real problem."

"These things really do a disservice from people who are truly afflicted by this, not some actor who is making $65,000 an episode who wants higher pay," said Trump Jr.
