Trump Jr. Speaks Out: FBI Only Leaks to Attack Trump

Donald Trump Jr. is calling out the FBI, accusing them of using the media to spin anti-Trump narratives and utilizing “selective leaks.”

During an appearance on Newsmax’s “Rob Schmitt Tonight” on Wednesday, Trump Jr. discussed the FBI raid of former President Donald Trump’s private residence at Mar-a-Lago, and the likely redactions on the affidavit used to conduct the raid.

“The FBI has done nothing to deserve any benefit of the doubt at this point,” he said.

“They’re looking for transparency, right, the DOJ, they’re looking for transparency, but they won’t show us the affidavit because that would actually be transparency,” Trump Jr. added. “They say what they want the people to believe is happening and then do the exact opposite. And they’ve been doing this time and time again.”

He went on to condemn the FBI’s work with the mainstream media, citing NBC’s Norah O’Donnell and her cleverly worded tweet suggesting that the bureau did not have Trump’s passports from the raid — which left out the fact that they actually did take the passports.

“They take the information that they want to be true – not the information that’s actually true,” Trump Jr. asserted. “They take the information they would love to be true because it is against Donald Trump, and they run with it as though it’s gospel.”

“That has now since been totally debunked, but her original tweet about it is still up,” he added. “It’s still it’s total fake news, but because they’re getting clickbait, because it went viral, they leave it up as though it’s real.”

Trump Jr. also pointed out the fact that Florida’s federal Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart — who is expected to hear the arguments on Thursday to release the affidavit used to secure the warrant for the raid — has been exposed for having conflicts of interest.

“It’s a total coincidence, Rob, that the magistrate that signed off on the search warrant happened to be Jeffrey Epstein’s lawyer and a Trump hater and an Obama supporter, right?” he asked. “Like, we’re to believe that this is all totally a coincidence.”

“I’m sure when he signs off on this stuff tomorrow, I’m sure we’ll see exactly nothing, because we know what’s going to happen before it happened, because it’s the same, old playbook day in and day out, Rob,” Trump Jr. added.
