Former President Donald Trump's son and executive of the Trump Organization—Eric Trump—once again embarked on a tirade against the media and law enforcement for supposedly hounding his family.
Eric Trump made the comments in an interview with far-right Fox News host Sean Hannity, discussing President Biden's son, Hunter Biden, who doesn't serve in the United States government.
The Trump son made a questionable claim while defending his family.
"We live clean lives, Sean, and every single day we're attacked by political hacks. Every single day, they come after us and they subpoena us and they try to find a comma that's out of place."
It was an interesting claim, to say the least.
First of all, the family's patriarch—Donald Trump—has tried for years to shield his financial records from the public eye, with his former lawyer—Michael Cohen—telling Congress under oath that this is due to rampant fraud. This is the same Michael Cohen who did prison time for using Trump campaign funds to cover up the former President's affair with Stormy Daniels.
Eric Trump himself—along with the other adult Trump children—had to undergo court-ordered training to learn not to steal money from charity.
People found Eric's claim laughable.

It's pure comedy the Trump family thinks this tracks. It won't hide evidence. https://t.co/KHiVLo6AZl— Todd Poirier (@Todd Poirier) 1624502091.0
I think by “clean” he means he never actually touched the money he and his family were stealing. It was wired. https://t.co/DP77xOJ8Ev— Kelly D (@Kelly D) 1624539095.0

Eric Trump may get another subpoena as the Manhattan D.A.'s and New York Attorney General's criminal investigation into Trump's businesses heats up.
