Eric Trump: People Have to Take Russia Interference 'Seriously'

(Fox News/"Fox & Friends")

President Donald Trump's son Eric said Monday that Russia did interfere in the 2016 election, and blamed the Obama administration for not preventing it.

On Fox News' "Fox & Friends," Trump claimed that the Democratic response to the memo released by Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., proves that the FBI's investigation into his father's campaign was politically motivated.

"My thoughts are, they dug and dug and dug and finally found themselves," Trump said. "It's awful what happened. You had the FBI and Department of Justice, you had them use opposition research to spy on a presidential candidate in this country, and it's horrible.

"This is the worst abuse imaginable, something you would see in a third world country, and it happened here."

"You know, people have to take this seriously," he continued. "There is nothing worse than when, you know, government — I mean, it's just very, very dark what happened, and I don't think the Democratic memo said anything. In fact, I think it confirmed that, you know, the judge wasn't told that this was opposition research."

Co-host Ainsley Earhardt pointed out that the agency did in fact inform the FISA court that authorized the surveillance on an adviser to the Trump campaign that some of the evidence came from political operatives.

"What started off as a hoax, you know, Trump won the election because of Russia, has been nothing further from the truth, and they ended up finding themselves in this whole irony, and it's kind of amusing," Trump replied.
