Eric Trump appeared on Fox News’ Hannity show (03/30/23) moments after the bombshell revelation that a Manhattan grand jury had indicted his father for crimes related to the hush money payments he made to adult film star Stormy Daniels.
A visibly angry Eric Trump accused the Manhattan DA of among other things, abusing his power, telling host Hannity that he is neglecting rampant crime in New York to go after his father. He also cast his father as the target of an elaborate political witch hunt by both the Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg and the New York Attorney General Leticia James.
Eric Trump specifically told host Hannity(2:08 ): “My father’s only crime was winning the 2016 election…From the time my father went down that escalator, we got subpoena after subpoena. We would have people like Alvin Bragg, Leticia James, and so many others, go out and campaign on the promise that they would take down a person, not knowing anything about them…These people are evil, they’re wicked, and is why people have lost trust in the system in the U.S. This is third world tactics.”
Eric Trump then threw in the political bias allegation saying(2:43 ): “You have Hunter Biden who has crack pictures on his laptop, you have Bill Clinton who is paying Paula Jones $850,000, you have Bill Clinton who is diddling interns in the White House in the Oval Office, you have Hillary Clinton who’s deleting 33,000 emails while under congressional subpoena, and no one says a damn thing about any of those people, but when my father’s leading by 35% in the polls, and they know he’s going to be the guy that Joe Biden…will ultimately…run against…that’s who they go after, right up against the statute of limitations…They will do anything to take the man out of the race…”
Interestingly, Eric Trump also alleged that his father’s prosecution was somehow orchestrated by billionaire Democratic super donor George Soros. He specifically said(5:40): “Americans see people like [George] Soros paying $1 million to get Alvin Bragg elected, and then this guy’s going out and doing this guy’s dirty work. People get it…That was their calling card. This was a mission. This is what they promised their donors. This is what they promised Soros that they would do. It’s why they received the big checks.”
He strangely concluded by saying his father “needed a pass”, which is interesting because it would appear to suggest that he is conceding his dad’s criminal conduct, but only lamenting the fact that he is not getting a break like DOJ presumably gave Hillary Clinton over the email saga. Hmm, very interesting argument indeed.
Bottom line folks, it is perfectly normal for Eric Trump to come out guns blazing in defense of his father over the newly disclosed indictments. The problem he might find himself in however, is that neither he, nor the public, currently knows exactly what allegations are laid out in the indictment(sealed). Eric’s reaction is perfectly understandable, but the wise option would be to wait for his dad’s court arraignment in a few days, where the allegations against him will be laid out in detail.
Maybe, just maybe, the indictment will lay out very serious allegations against his father, which will justify the DA’s/ grand jury’s actions, even in the eyes of Republicans.
