Trump Jr.: Nunes' Memo 'a Little Bit of Sweet Revenge'

Donald Trump Jr. delighted in the release of a GOP-authored House Intelligence Committee memo, calling it “a little bit of sweet revenge” for him and his family.

In an interview on “Watters World” on Saturday night, the eldest son of President Donald Trump said the memo reveals the "real" collusion that occurred during the 2016 election and transition.

"They weaponized the FBI and the [Department of Justice] to attack the duly elected president of the United States," Trump Jr. said, arguing this shows special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation is "rotten to the core."

Republicans claimed in the memo, among other things, that the FBI and Justice Department had improperly used a document paid for by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee — and compiled by ex-British spy Christopher Steele — in the application for a warrant to surveil former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

"There is a little bit of sweet revenge in it for me and certainly probably the family in a sense that if they wouldn't have done this, this stuff would be going on,” the younger Trump said.

“This would be going on at the highest levels of government. They'd be continuing doing it to my father, trying to undermine his actions. Imagine how effective he can be — given the year he's had — without this cloud over his head."

Trump Jr. also said it’s time for the congressional and FBI investigations into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign to "come to a conclusion already."
